Experienced educator and musician offering tutoring and private piano and voice lessons in Summerville.

Methodology

I am classically trained and have taught many different styles of music, to all ages of students, throughout my career, from Broadway to gospel and many things in between. I endeavor with each of my students to find their passion and goals before we ever dig in to the mechanics of learning to play or the art of reading music and understanding its theory so that I can direct your lessons in the way that best suits you. If playing off of a chord chart with a band is your goal, I can make your lessons suit that purpose. If you want to work toward competitions as a classical musician, I can help there too. I can also help if all you want to do is play for your own enjoyment or raise a well rounded child who appreciates the arts! While the basics of music theory are foundational and need to be taught, the techniques and methodology can be adjusted to suit your needs, whatever they may be. And, of course, if all you need is help understanding the theory itself, I am here to do that too.

Background

I am a professional worship leader and pianist, as well as a professional teacher. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Music, specifically voice and piano, from Columbia International University and a Master of Arts in Teaching early childhood and elementary education from that same school. I have been in the music industry since I was a child, working both professionally and in a volunteer capacity. I have done everything from touring with choral groups, to directing musicals, to conducting children and adult choirs, to writing and arranging music for choirs and students, to teaching individual and group lessons.
