Making music is a skill which can bring lifelong joy to the musician as well as everyone around them. While I can easily ensure that my students enjoy music-making while they are taking lessons, my ultimate goal is that students continue to want to make music throughout their entire life, even after they stop taking lessons. I firmly believe that my job as a teacher is to train my students to be independent and self-sufficient musicians, musicians who do not need to take piano lessons for the rest of their life. My ultimate goal with each student is that one day I can tell them that they don't need me anymore. Many teachers teach by rote, playing a passage to a student and then having the student play it back. Though this method is helpful in some situations, students who are taught in this manner often find that they are only able to play the songs taught to them in lessons, and that to learn a new song they must have a teacher by their side showing them how the song goes. In my lessons, however, students are taught to learn their own music though sight-reading, ear-training, music theory, and listening to and critiquing their own playing. Over time, this allows the student more and more freedom to make music without a teacher.

As every voice is different, it is important to me that the lessons I give are personalized for each student. It is always my goal to unlock the singer's true, natural voice, so that they can create their own unique music. I use a functional bel canto method that focuses on a natural expression of the voice. This ensures a healthy sound production, avoiding undue pressure on the voice. The greatest aspect of this technique is that it translates to any musical style and provides a solid foundation that can be taken in any direction.

I love to see students come out of their shell!  It gives me so much pleasure to watch the progression of a student who starts out shy and scared to sing in public, to commanding a stage and audience after a series of lessons.  I like to move at the students pace, while encouraging and challenging the student to push themselves with healthy vocal practices and exercises, while in, and away from the studio.  My goal for my students is to help them find their own, unique voice and style!

I started teaching in a studio while I was in high school, and I branched out to teach out of my own residence while I was in college. Having taught a variety of ages, I have found that making a personal connection with people is fundamental in making progress in music. Performing with a traveling children's band around the country and leading worship in Africa have been experiences that have taught me how to connect with people in a way that is relevant and helpful to them. I interned in children's ministry, but I have worked with adults, too. I love people and enjoy sharing music with everyone.

The Kodály Approach – More than Hand Signs

...hear a Kodály inspired teacher sing, “do, re, mi,” I’m sure many of you are transported back to your childhood days of watching The Sound of Music with your family. As it turns out, those syllables are three of seven that designate pitches, collectively called solfege. Many musicians use solfege as a tool for reading melodic content, although the Latin syllables are more readily used by singers to read a melody prior to singing text. Since a child’s first instrument is their voice, singing is often the fundamental component to an elementary music classroom. This is certainly the case in ... 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.
