Overview:
I am a professional musician and teacher who is passionate about helping students meet their full potenial. I studied voice, flute, and piano at Bridgewater State University. I am an active musician in the south shore and the greater Boston area. Weekly I serve as a professional section leader and cantor at a local church. Some of my favorite roles that I have played in musical theater are April - Company, The balladeer - Assassins, and Adolfo Pireli - Sweeney Todd. I love music of all genres including classical, musical theater, pop, rock, folk, and even punk.
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching in college; I would often tutor and help other students with difficult course material. I realized that I loved helping others learn and I began teaching at local music stores and schools a few years ago. I strongly feel that learning is best done in a fun, supportive environment. Every year I host recitals to give my students an opportunity to perform in additional to helping students prepare for local auditions, open mics, and other performances. Out of all the experience levels I teach, I love to teach beginners the most; it is very rewarding to watch them grow!
METHODS USED
For my voice students I prefer to work within genres that the student likes; I did not like being forced to sing certain songs when I was studying voice, so I would not want to do that to anyone else! My flute students I like to work with the Rubank method books - from beginner to advanced; they offer the most comprehensive approach to playing the flute. For piano students, I prefer to use the Piano Adventure Series by Faber. My younger students will start with the Primer level and my students 12 and up typically start with the Adult Book 1 of the series. In addition to working with lesson books and repertoire, students will also learn music theory and ear training in a fun way as we progress through lessons.
LESSON STYLE
It is very important to me that regardless of instrument, the student learns healthy and sustainable techniques that will last a lifetime. I also foster independent student thought in lessons; it is a real joy to me when students not only progress musically, but as an artist as well. If they can understand music on their own without constant instruction or correction; I know I have done my job. A student that can self-diagnose their faults in music is on their way to being a musician themselves!

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
