I am a diligent and motivated musician, performer and educator who enjoys working with a variey of students looking to grow in musicianship. In 2010, I graduated with my degrees in Music Education and Applied Voice from Indiana Wesleyan University.  During my undergraduate experience I had opportunities to perform throughout Europe, to hold the honor of student conductor of the Indiana Wesleyan University Chorale, to choregoraph stage productions including multiple operas and musicals and to premier the lead role in a new musical, Where Fortunes Lie. Since my schooling, I have had occasion to perform with Kathleen Battle, Ronan Tynan, Michele Ragusa and Mike McGowan, as well as sing under the batons of Dr. Todd Guy, Dr. Erin Freeman, Dr. JoAnn Falletta and Dr. Adam Luebke. My goal as a music educator is to encourage and develop my students' musical abilities and passions for performance.

Instruments:

I begin with the basics for beginning students. I believe it is essential to begin with honing each students musicianship. Once I feel they have a firm grasp of beginning musicianship, I introduce them to solo repertoire. For advanced students, I incorporate sight singing as well.

Instruments:

I am from a traditional classical singing background.  I use vocal exercises to not only strenghen the voice but to build a strong singing foundation.  Hopefully, by the end of the lessons there will be no need for a microphone.  For young singers we will focus on classic tradional basic song literature as well as have fun with popular music.  Adults can bet that I will help them fine tune and build a sound and secure vocal technique for what ever repertoire they are needing guidance on.  Each voice is different so depending on your level and your skill I will figure out how to help you succeed.

I am a passionate, professional conductor, baritone, and educator with extensive experience teaching and inspiring students, singers, and pianist in schools, camps, private studios, community organizations, and churches. I currently serve as the Director of Choral Music at Nichols School where I conduct the Concert Choir and teach voice lessons and vocal technique.  In the community, I am the Bass Section Leader for the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus and the Music Director at Kenmore Baptist Church.

In the summers of 2015 and 2016 at the Eastman School of Music, I was selected to be a Choral Fellow in the Advanced Conducting Workshops as well as the baritone soloist in choral performances of Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem. As a young baritone, I have enjoyed professional memberships in over 15 choral organizations, most notably with the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus, the Chicago Choral Artists, VOICES, First Inversion, the Eastman Chorale, and the Eastman-Rochester Chorus, in which I was selected for solos in Vaughn Williams’ A Sea Symphony, Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem, and Dominick Argento’s Four Seascapes. I was also a member of the Summer Fest Choir and Festival Chamber Choir in the 2013 Summer Choral Festival and Competition in Lisbon, Portugal. In Chicago, I served as the Bass Section Leader in the Moody Oratorio Chorus, and the Moody Chorale, with which I traveled extensively throughout four continents.

I have studied voice with Robert Swensen at the Eastman School of Music, Dr. Terry Strandt at the Moody Bible Institute, and Dr. Kyle Ferrill at Interlochen Arts Camp.

Listening to Jazz: A Beginner's Guide

...above, there are more advanced ways of listening to jazz. I learned this next listening exercise while I was at Indiana University. It’s not necessarily a deeper form of listening to jazz than the methods described above. I’d call it a more directed approach. If you really want to get inside a specific track, then this is a great exercise.   This method involves isolating each instrument. You focus your ears to one specific instrument for the whole recording. During solos, instead of listening to what’s going on in the forefront (which is the natural inclination) you listen to what else is... Read More

Open-String Guitar Chords

...Every guitarist, no matter what level or playing style, needs to develop a vocabulary of chords. After all, every song is made up of chords and a melody (sometimes with lyrics) played with a certain rhythm. For this article we’ll take a general look at chords, specifically, open-string guitar chords.   What are open-string guitar chords?   First, we need to understand what chords are and the simple definition is two or more notes played at the same time. As you develop as a guitar player and musician this definition will take on a deeper meaning but, for now, this is ... Read More

The Accordion: Bluegrass Music's Forgotten Instrument

...rising to fame. Early Bluegrass Instruments: The Accordion The accordion is a rather unique type of instrument. The keys make it look like a portable piano, the squeezing aspect is reminiscent of the Scottish bagpipes and the sound is like that of a reeded instrument, like the harmonica. All of these different features coming together make for a unique sound that can lend itself very well to all types of folk music – hence the initial interest by Bill Monroe. How you play it is by either compressing or expanding the bellows to move air over the reeds inside the instrument. ... Read More

The Best Age to Start Flute Lessons

...What is the best age to start flute lessons? Musika receives many calls from parents looking to start their young child (age 3 or 4) out with formal private flute lessons, but many times the student’s just aren’t old enough to get started. While it’s great to start learning music at an early age, parents must make sure students are both physically and academically ready to begin studying the flute. The most important factor when starting flute is deciding whether or not the student’s hands are large enough to facilitate playing its numerous keys. As a wind instrument, it is also important that the student has the developed lung capacity to play – at the earliest lessons usually begin around age 7 or 8. If a student starts out playing the flute and they are ... Read More

...what the instrument is capable of. For young students in particular, hearing themselves play songs such as these, after applying the techniques learned from their teachers and music books, can be an eye opening and awesome experience. Learning a new instrument is difficult and can at times feel overwhelming, as students are learning chords, scales, theory, and tuning all at once.

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.
