Music educator with 14 years of experience offering lessons in vocal technique, sight-singing, piano, trumpet, and music theory.

Methodology

I approach each lesson according to the individual student's needs. Whether a student has an upcoming audition, needs to refine their singing/playing technique, or simply wants to improve their overall musicianship and music literacy, I am able to efficiently craft each student's lesson in a way that will help them achieve their short-term and long-term goals

Background

I have experience teaching choir, band, music theory, and many private lesson students in voice, piano and trumpet. I have a Bachelor of Music Education degree as well as a Master of Music in Vocal Performance. I teach music from a wide variety of genres and styles, including opera, classical, musical theatre, pop, and jazz.
