Most students ages 14 and under complete weekly 30 minute lessons with Olivia.  High school and adult aged students often prefer a weekly 60 minute lesson - as they have a longer attention span.  Lessons have a large emphasis on performance preparation and music theory.  At the appropriate time, scales and techique exercises are introduced, alongside lesson and theory books.

I have been teaching voice and piano for ten years; beginning with my senior year in high school and now as a professional musician. I have taught at several colleges, conservatories and universities; as well as frequently engaging students in master classes of both the Opera and Music Theater genres. I really enjoy meeting students where they are at-finding out their individual needs and goals; and designing a curriculum specific to each student!

I have been a teacher almost as long as I can remember.  As one of the more advanced students in class I was often utilized to help other students, even in elementary school.  By the time I reached high school, I was sitting in the concertmaster seat (even though I was a violist) and I regularly led sectionals and conducted the orchestra when needed.  At that point I also had a small private studio.  In college I gained lots of valuable experience teaching in classrooms of all sizes, skill levels and socio-economic statuses, while continuing to maintain a private studio.  Since graduating, I've gained additional experience conducting community orchestras.  I also acted as a lead teacher at the Explore Music! kids camp in Brainard, MN during their first year in the summer of 2012.

When teaching, I take a very person-centered approach. I believe in meeting my student where they are in the moment, and that music lessons should be a way to foster creativity and creative expression. Through music, I believe that I can make learning fun!

Piano Lesson Plans: What to Expect and How to Prepare

...and backgrounds should be introduced to scales within the first few lessons. Scales are an introduction into the idea that the piano is most easily and efficiently played with the correct fingers, posture, and hand position. When I first began teaching piano, I was surprised how quickly students as young as four or five could master the C Major scale. It just takes time, thoughtful instruction, and a mixture of enthusiasm and patience.   Start with the major scale on middle C, and have your student memorize each hand individually and then together. When my students start playing this scale with their... Read More

His rough beginnings as a young composer and musician came to fruition in 1766, when he began directing musical activities in the Esterhazy court.   Haydn continued his duties for the Esterhazy estate until around 1790—a remarkable tenure working for the same noble. He didn’t take a break from the Esterhazy family until around 1790, when he left for London (his departure was due to the fact that the newest Esterhazy heir didn’t much care for music). He eventually returned to the Esterhazy estate and after a second trip to London, ... Read More
