Professional singer with 10 years of singing experience gives classical, operatic, and musical theatre voice lessons and music theory while finishing degree at Simpson College in Indianola, IA.

Methodology

As a vocal instructor, the relationship between your personal life and the voice is very important. I would begin our lessons by getting to know you, talk about anything that might be going on that day (5 minutes of time) and then work into the music, exploring different languages and styles that suit your specific voice.
As a music theory teacher, I would make sure that you understand the current lesson before we move on to the next lesson. There will be assignments designed for your specific growth as a musician when working on either reading or composing music.

Background

I have been giving lessons for two years now, but have also student taught at the elementary through high school levels in Des Moines, IA. While student teaching, I was taught my Chamber Choir, Jazz Choir, and Show Choir. I have taught around 20 private lessons while I was a guest coach at a school preparing them for solo/ensemble competitions. My students have improved their sound and have received better scores in competitions than previous times.
