I have been teaching private voice lessons for 7 years. I teach all ages and all styles...my students have ranged from children and novices in their 70s to conservatory-bound high schoolers. For two years I served on the voice faculty of the Tanglewood Institute. My students have gone on to the best music schools, including Juilliard, Eastman, and McGill.

In the past, I have taught using books, and warm-up exercises, and while I still plan on using the exercises, I'm intending on adding movement activities that I feel would be more enjoyable, especially for the younger students.

Instruments:

With children, I generally work on two goals per lesson. At about 10 or 11, I will work on both technique and one work. I generally start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements for violin, and simple songs chosen between teacher and student for voice.

Instruments:

I am very passionate about music, and I try to motivate my students towards a similar love of music of all styles and genres. In 2014, I have completed my studies at Boston University, where I completed a PhD in Musicology with a focus on jazz of the 1930s and 1940s. I have performed at such venues as the Kennedy Center, the Boston Symphony Hall, the Taylor House, and the Kreeger Museum as a solo and ensemble musician. Currently, I am the pianist and managing director of the traditional jazz band, the Butler Parks Hot Serenaders, and am the artistic director of Baltimore-based cabaret ensemble, Ghosts of Weimar. I am also an experienced composer and arranger, having written children's musical shows for D.C.'s Imagination Stage, and arranged the cabaret song repertoire of William Bolcom.
