I love explaining and sharing music with people. I love engaging with students and bringing them from their current level to a higher level of artistic knowledge and musicianship. As an opera singer, recitalist and musical theater performer-I bring a lot of experience and legacy to pass down to my students. I love being able to  empower them to do their very best. I am so blessed to be a teacher and performer!

I believe music should be a lot of fun.  There should never be anything scary about learning something new to become a better person.  I try to guide people through their musical journey as pleasantly as I can.  That being said, hard work and perseverance are essential qualities for a beginning musician.  Simply put, the more you put in, the more you'll get.  I look forward to working with you.

I love developing a strong personal relationship with my students throughout our time of learning. I have come through many lessons throughout my high school and college career where lessons were not fun. I want to make it as fun and productive as possible for the student, the student's parents (if they're sitting in on lessons), and love recaping the last couple minutes of the lesson. I love using metaphors and real-life situations and experiences for students to grasp a particular "problem spot" in a passage of music. This helps the student to get a visual advantage in order to grasp the problem and create solutions to them.

Every singer has a unique voice, and therefore every student must have a unique vocal plan of action tailored to fit their voice and personality. To this end, my goal is to always encourage the student's natural voice by applying a healthy and solid technique through a relaxed larynx, free and steady airflow, and active yet elastic support. The larynx should never be put under undue amounts of stress, and to achieve this, I believe in involving the abdomen, back, and sides to support the sound. The result is a warmer, more beautiful sound and a healthy singer. Other technique basics I teach include and open jaw, raised soft palate, and erect yet relaxed posture. I believe in choosing repertoire for the student that they enjoy singing and that will aid the student's current vocal progress. If the student loves singing the pieces, they will practice more and develop their voice faster! For my young piano students, we start with the John Thompson Easiest Piano Course. We begin by identifying the notes on the keyboard and very simple rhythms then slowly integrating the notes on the keyboard with the written notes on the staff, building up from middle C. For my adult students, we learn from Alfred's Basic Adult Piano course. However, if the student has already found a course they enjoy and feel comfortable with, I am always flexible with the required materials. The most important thing is always finding what method works best for the pupil, tailoring the lessons to suit the pupil's needs, and making learning piano fun!

I am aware of the many people that have a great desire to learn about music. I view it as a language. Once you are able to read write and speak (singing or playing) you are fluent in music. I graduated from the Eastman School of music in 1977 and have played in several bands and sung in a multitude of singing groups during my life. I have taught music in all its forms for 40 years. This is my calling. Most recently I am singing with the Reno Philharmonic Symphony Chorus. I have sung rock, folk, barbershop you name it. And I love it all.

...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

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.
