Lesson Info

First and foremost, we need to have fun. Music is fun and the lessons should be too. When it comes to practice I expect students to spend time outside of the lessons practicing to ensure that they see results. 
I work with a variety of methods and concepts to ensure that I am building a solid understanding of music in my students. I work on intonation, music theory, sight reading, and expression.

I am comfortable teaching:
Voice: Beginning to Professional (Ages 12 and up, younger at instructor's discretion)
Cello/
Piano/Guitar: Beginning to Intermediate (Any age)

Voice
I have extensive background in classical technique, and teach proper, healthy belt technique as well. I am comfortable teaching music from all genres and styles. I focus on developing a beautiful and unique sound for each student while maintaining a healthy, flexible voice.

Cello
I teach beginning and intermediate level cellists who either rent or own their own instrument. I encourage my students to join an orchestra or string ensemble, as there is no substitute for the experience of being part of a musical team. Cello students will work out of a technique book that will help build a solid foundation. Once basic skills are learned we will start to search out more advanced music.

Piano and Guitar
For piano and guitar lessons I am best with beginners. I specialize in working with students who are just learning about music and want to learn the basics of piano or guitar. I am comfortable working with all ages of beginning piano and guitar student. I can also work with singing students who are interested in also accompanying themselves. Piano and guitar students will begin using a technique book that will help build basic skills. Once these are solid, we will start to search out the specific music you are interested in playing. So if you love a song on the radio, keep notes and we'll learn it.
