Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I have kept a private studio of about 3-4 students for about 5 years. I also substitute for various studios in their voice faculty. No matter what level my students are at I always stress the importance of fundamentals. Without a strong foundation you cannot build a house. The material I encourage encompasses a variety of styles including: classical, musical theater, contemporary and Disney animated. It's important to keep students engaged and having fun! Without a doubt, making lesson time enjoyable is of utmost importance to me.
As a musical theatre performer, voice teacher and coach, I have learned the singer’s paramount need is to maintain vocal health and consistency of performance. This is achieved by laying a foundation of solid vocal training, focusing on the healthy functional use of the voice with emphasis on the following aspects to develop a secure singing technique: · Determination of correct voice category and range · Proper breath support and natural resonance · Alignment of body and larynx · Relaxation of the jaw, tongue and pharynx · Correct diction and articulation · Ear training exercises · Repertoire selection appropriate to age and voice type · Interpretation-integrating text and musical expression
I will conduct our first lesson getting to know my student and what they hope to achieve. I will ask that you prepare 2 songs to sing for me, without music. After I assess the student in skill, ability, comprehension, and interests I will select and modify exercises that will best suit their personality. I keep notes of each lesson so that I am fully aware of my student's progression and pace. I also will assign appropriate exercises to sustain them between lessons. The curriculum is to be structured after the first lesson and introduced in the second lesson. We will use a variety of resources and tools like visual aids and songs with and without music to assist us.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I use exercises from "How to Train Singers" by Larra Browning Henderson. I studied with her personally. For the piano, I use the Alfred books. They offer a variety of books for students of all ages. Regardless of instrument, I place a strong emphasis on technique and can also offer training in theory.
I have taught Elementary music, specifically second grade, and taught young children to read music. l have taught private voice in both a solo and choral style to high school-aged students. I was a member of the TMEA All-State Mixed Choir (first chair) in high school and I am very familiar with many types of auditioning processes, including: Musical Theater, Opera, Choir, etc.. I encourage trying new things and embracing opportunities to sing for people. I have also worked with college-level and adults of all levels!

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.Ok
