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:
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
My official teaching experience dates back to 2013, as I became a Vocal Instructor Intern for the Bees & Butterflies Performing Arts Company in NYC. There, I have given private lessons, as well as group lessons in preparation for upcoming shows and personal endeavors. Since around high school, I have been an advisor for many people when it came to studio/recording sessions or rehearsals. So, my love for helping, teaching, and encouraging individuals to perfect their craft is not new, but spans over the course of many years. Helping students find their own, original voice in music is my ultimate goal!
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Viola
For violin and viola, I base my beginning instruction in the Suzuki Method and philosophy. The latter refers to the concept that ANY human being can learn music provided the right environment is created to facilitate the learning. I am a firm believer of this philosophy. As students get more advanced, I incorporate Music Reading (theory) as well as repertoire outside of the Suzuki method. I also make sure the students and their families are participating- or willing to look into it- of activities outside of the lessons that enhance the musical development and enjoyment: joining a choir or an orchestra, attending concerts, participating in recitals with other students, etc. For voice and piano students, I combine several methods according to the students needs. Voice students in particular would benefit from my experiences growing up as a singer since very young (from boy soprano to grown-up baritone). The development I went through allowed me to experience for myself a vast repertoire, which is the basis of what I teach in my lessons.
Teaching Methods: I believe that it's crucial to get to know the person I am teaching. I have studied the multiple intelligences and the different types of learning styles. I believe in the incorporation of those learning styles into my teaching of music. I have worked with special needs students, particularly those with Autism, and I have experienced how much of a difference music can make in people's lives! Once we discover what you'd like to get out of your lessons, we can start choosing repertoire that works hand in hand with your technique training!
Teaching Styles: My number one goal is to see music change the lives of my students as much as it has for me. Singing has proven to increase cognitive awareness and reduce stress. I'm a very positive person and I believe in encouraging my students while also achieving work! Music is a universal language and will be such a good thing to have in your life! I can't wait to sing with you!

I believe the establishment of a safe, judgment free environment is integral to the success of the music classroom. In my studio each student will be encouraged and supported on their musical journey. I look for the unique talents each student has and create opportunities for those talents to shine. Education is a key to our liberation from limitations put on our freedom and self-expression. I use it to help develop a critical awareness of the world and a passion to transform it.

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
