About me

Music is a powerful form of personal expression. To master it requires discipline and desire. Once mastered, it serves one for a lifetime.

Specialties

Piano: I specialize in teaching beginning to early intermediate students, ages 8 years or older. I rarely take transfer students. My studio is an excellant place for a beginning student to master the ability to sight-read music, play with a steady beat and develop basic expressive skills. As students move into reading early piano repertoire, they are exposed to a large quantity of music in a variety of genres and time periods. Musicality and expressiveness is key at this stage.
Voice: I specialize in teaching proper vocal technique to 12 year olds and older. We apply this in the genres of art songs, musical theatre, and folk songs.

Lesson details

Piano: I teach one 30 minute lesson per week. Typically students perform what they have mastered during the week, I help them with anything they are struggling with, teach them new concepts and assign new material as needed. Group lessons replace private lessons quarterly and give students an opportunity to network, play theory games and perform. Students are expected to practice daily and thoroughly.
Voice: I teach one 30 minute lesson per week (or 2 hour-long lessons per month as scheduling allows). A typical lesson includes warm ups for whatever level the student is at, application of those techniques to repertoire, and introduction of new repertoire. Emphasis is on vocal technique and musical expression, not on music literacy. Students are expected to practice techniques learned at home and to learn repertoire outside of lessons once it has been introduced.
