I began taking piano lessons when I was about four years old and voice lessons when I was seven. I was involved in Certificate of Merit for voice and for piano. I studied music at UC Santa Cruz and graduated in 2012. I was exposed to many contemporary pieces and had a wonderful experience in a small but strong department. I have continued singing since graduating and love sharing music and the vocal technique I learned in my undergrad.

  My lesson is divided in 2 parts.  Warm up - it consists of very important excercises that cover all the aspects of vocal technique development.  Applying all just learned to performing the real music. I care about voice and try to advise to my students musical pieces that are beneficial for their development. My students always welcomed to bring in the music they are passionate about. Pretty often they impress me with their good musical taste and wide range of in interests. In order to be prepared for lessons my students are required to be able to read and learn music by themselves. Some students have musical background, some do not. In this case I teach them basics of music theory.

Instruments:

Since my teaching philosophy is that every piano lesson should be fun,  I tailor each lesson according to the student's age and interests.  For young beginners, I choose method books that contain fun songs.  I also teach music theory through story telling.  For older students, I tailor each lesson according to their interests. However, I encourage them to learn Classical music, so that students develop good musicality. My goal is that all my students enjoy music for the rest of their lives.

Teaching Violin: Tips for New Teachers

...distance away from your student base. In this case, having a dedicated teaching space outside the home is better. Look into finding space at a local college, a school, or perhaps a community center. Some churches offer arts programs, and may be willing to let you use their space. In these cases, find out the rules about using the piano, storing music stands, and sharing space with other groups.

Five Benefits of Music Education

...Benefits of Music Education – What the Research Doesn’t Always Tell You In this day and age, education is broadly focused on racing to the top. The best grades and first place trophies are not seen as occasional success stories, but rather the standard expectation. It’s difficult to assert the importance of different facets of education without a standard by which to measure. The benefits of music education are often overlooked, due to its lack of prevalence in standardized tests and assessments. At first, this may seem problematic, unless we consider that the intrinsic and extrinsic benefits of music education are ... Read More

I had the opportunity to give a recital at the Stradivarius museum and got to stay in the town for three days. I ate wherever I could, the pasta and the pizza were unbelievable! Did you take home any recipe ideas? No, but I took lots of pictures! Article: ... 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. 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.
