I recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison's School of Music and School of Education with...a Music Education degree! I live in Madison and would like to keep music in my life and utilize my degree. My main instrument is clarinet.
Piano, Music Theory
I really love teaching piano and I would love to be your piano teacher! Click on photos and videos and watch "Meet Your Piano Teacher" to get to know me better.
I grew up in a very musical family. Since I was surrounded by music, I took an interest in learning piano at an early age. I started taking lessons at age four, and I continued studying piano, from a variety of wonderful and distinguished teachers straight through college. I was awarded a double music scholarship for piano performance and a Presidential academic scholarship at Elmhurst College.
I majored in music and psychology, and graduated summa cum laude in May 2007. In college, I took courses in music theory, piano performance, piano pedagogy, educational psychology, and developmental psychology. I began teaching piano lessons during college, and continued to teach lessons in Illinois until 2010.
In 2011, I moved to Milwaukee and ran a successful piano studio. I moved to Madison in June 2013. In addition to teaching, I have accompanied church services, high school choirs, voice recitals, and musical theater.
Based on my experience in music, I make piano lessons creative and fun!
Violin, Music Theory, Viola
I grew up as a Suzuki violin student in rural Washington state. I received a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Central Washington University. I then moved to London for an academic year to study one-on-one with a violin teacher there. Last year I lived in Seattle, WA and performed as a freelancer and also taught extensively. Now I am settling in Wisconsin as I begin my Master of Music degree at UW-Madison.
I have experience teaching private lessons to beginners as well as advanced students and I have taught all ages, from young children to adults. I have studied string pedagogy in college as part of my Bachelor of Music degree and I am also Suzuki certified through Book 2. I try to accommodate the interests and learning style of each individual student. I am all about making music fun to learn and I enjoy working with all ages and all ability levels.
Singing, Broadway Singing, Opera Voice
I strongly believe that anyone can learn to sing, and my goal is to dispel the myth that only a select few are "gifted" with beautiful voices. Singing is like a sport; it is about muscular coordination, which with practice and focused instruction, is something that anyone can improve! It is my job as a teacher to help you choose repertoire and to give useful feedback which will build your voice and your confidence.
My teaching experience encompasses students of all ages and abilities, some as young as 10, to those well into adulthood. The majority of my teaching and performing experience is in classical voice, with a focus in opera and art song. I get a deep feeling of satisfaction from watching my students achieve their personal singing goals, and have sent many on to receive top ratings at vocal competitions and college music scholarships.
I am a professional vocalist and voice instructor in Waco, Texas. I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in vocal performance from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, and my Masters of Music degree in voice at the University of Minnesota. My vocal focus is in operatic performance because I am passionate about the influence of text and characterization in vocal music.
