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, Trumpet
Seems I've always been a teacher, even when I didn't realize it; from my school days as first chair helping other students, through college where I taught for the Southern Nevada School of Music and at Vesleys Music Conservatory, through the time I received my first certified public school teaching position and after that as a business owner with employees, I have been teaching and learning. Currently I teach Instrumental, Vocal music and Speech/Drama in Oklahoma as a certified classroom teacher. I have produced State Speech Champions and a vocal student who received the coveted Red Card to appear on The VOICE tv show. I believe the forestated exemplifies my passion for teaching and having young people do more than they might think.

For beginning piano students I typically use the Alfred Method. Once the student demonstrates a grasp of the fundamentals I introduce solo repertoire. For adults I typically use the John Thompson Adult Piano Course and we work together to find the solo repertoire. For voice lessons, I typically teach the bel canto style. I will work with vocalises that help develop breath control, placement and open vowels. I also use the Music Theory for Singers program to teach Music Theory and also use solfeggi to build sight singing skills. I will typically start with the 24 Italian Songs and Arias as well as specific repertoire the student is interested in learning, whether it is musical theatre, opera or other popular music.
My teaching experience includes working with children at St. Paul United Methodist Church and The Learning Tree Daycare in Muskogee, Oklahoma. More recently I was a teaching assistant at the University of Arizona where I held my own studio of undergraduate voice majors as well as teaching a voice class for students with no previous musical experience. In addition to my teaching experience, I have performed in many opera and musical theatre productions (Cimarron Opera, The International Summer Music Institute, Muskogee Little Theatre) as well as professional choirs.
For younger students, I always want to make sure our lessons stay fun, while encouraging growth at the same time, so I usually let them pick a song they like, and then I assign another to assist with their musical development. For older students and adults, we really dive into technique and vocal health, with a strong emphasis on technicalities like breath support and placement, and then use that foundation to branch out into multiple genres. Italian arias, classic musical theatre, contemporary rock - all are valid forms of musical expression and I believe singers should be equipped with the tools to tackle each genre with competence and flair.

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
