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:
I'm a fun and knowledgable voice teacher with over nine years of teaching experience. My teaching style is grounded in solid vocal techniques that I teach in a clear and concise manner. I am nurturing and thorough as I prepare my students for their next competition, audition, or performance. I generally have all of my students work on Classical, Musical Theater, and Pop genres so that they are well-rounded. My students have been accepted to many competitive Universities, have been invited to sing with The Connecticut All-State Chorus, and have won singing contests and competitions. Performing opera around the world was a great experience. I take great joy in sharing that experience and my love of singing with my students.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Clarinet, Accordion
Teaching Methods: PIANO. Thompson, Schaum, Hanon, Alfred, Carnegie Hall Achievement Program, Trinity Guildhall, ABRSM.
Teaching Styles: PIANO. I make sure my students are technically grounded in scales, chords, arpeggios, good fingering and hand position, posture, pedalling, etc . . . The degree to which we practice technical exercises depends on the student's goals and program course. If enrolled in one of the assessment programs such as Carnegie Hall or Trinity Guildhall technical skills are practiced more at each lesson. Although I use lesson books with assigned pieces each week, I also think it is important for the student to work on pieces they choose themselves. I incorporate this at all levels of playing. It is important for a musican to have desire to play and a connection to their music. I am passionate about my music and my students can't help but be the same. I do expect excellence and dedication from my students, so regular practice is a must! VOICE. I usually spend the first 15 minutes of the lesson working on technical exercises to improve breath support, placement/resonance, jaw/tongue/lip position, flexibility, range, etc . . . and the the remainder of the lesson is spent working on chosen repertoire. For this reason, I do not teach 30 minute voice lessons. Minimum 45 minutes.
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
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Keyboard, Djembe, Acoustic Guitar
Going from singing for fun, to performing professionally, to music therapy has only intensified my passion for helping others. Teaching others is such a unique experience, especially when when it involves music. I believe teaching is at its best when the teacher her/himself discovers something new as well. I always include a strong understanding of vocal padagogy; vocal health; piano pedagogy; Classical, pop, musical theatre; stage performance; basic music theory and solfedge. Teaching in a comfortable setting is very important to me as well.
Instruments: Guitar, Voice
With the small devotion of 30 minutes a day to your practicing, I can make a novice player become a good guitarist, and a good guitarist into a great player. For beginning pre-teen students, I most often begin with the Alfred Auberge method. For those who can already read music or have played another instrument, the Mel Bay method is a good start. For adults, I often use the Frederick Noad books Segovia Diatonic scales and Giuliani arpeggios. For intermediate and advanced students, I often use the period-based methods of Frederick Noad while introducing the larger works in the guitar repertoire.

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
