About Me

About You for Take Lessons

Teaching music students for over 30 years has enriched my life. My relationship with my students is a two-way street. I create a course of study to fit their individual interests and needs and often learn from them as we explore their interest in God's wonderful gift of music!

After teaching elementary music in public schools for 10 years and training university interns, it was a thrill to become a vocal graduate assistant at the University of South Florida where I earned both a B.A.in Music Education and an M.A. in Vocal Performance with Voice, Choral, Music Education and Piano Pedagogy emphasis.

My classical training is also enhanced by participation in Broadway, contemporary, folk, pop music and sacred music styles.

Teaching at various private schools¬ô, including theater school and directing both contemporary praise bands and traditional church choirs has provided enjoyable contrasts for me.

I have adjudicated for the Florida Vocal Association Solo and Ensemble Festivals and the National Association of Teachers of Singing Student Auditions. Former students are pursuing careers as performers, composers, music teachers and music ministers ..........and singing to their babies!

*** Lesson Details ***

Piano Study

I provide a variety of instruction: Classical, Traditional and Worship Chords/Chord Chart approach with Improvisation.

Lessons and curriculem are tailored to the students abilities and interests. Traditional note reading and/or chord chart playing, classical or popular music with improvisation skills can be pursued.
However, beginners should understand that there are skills everyone needs to begin with to progress.

I incorporate duet playing to enhance beginner songs and to teach ensemble playing at all levels.
Most of my students pursue piano for their own enjoyment or for ensemble,church and social gatherings. However, because of 2 years of piano study at the University level, I am very comfortable with those who wish to prepare for competition and advanced study.

I prefer to teach students ages 7 & up.
For Younger Students: I offer Music Enrichment Piano lessons with a more play-like approach to music readiness activities; such as movement songs developing steady beat, rhythm awareness, finger dexterity and form.

Vocal Study

Vocal students can concentrate on a single style to study or a mix of Classical, Broadway, Pop, Folk, Traditional Sacred or Contemporary Christian Styles.

We are beautifully and wonderfully made in such a way that certain foundational, physical aspects of singing will help everyone. I teach the foundations for a physiologically correct technique that enhances every style. This has helped all singers, including those who are experiencing discomfort when they sing.

Singing is as natural to me as speaking but I wasn't always this way. That's why I love to help anyone become comfortable or better at expressing themself through singing. Vocal students of all levels, beginning to advanced, are welcome.

Singing is a very individual thing and I approach each student uniquely. I have multiple experiences and styles to draw from.

I prefer to teach lessons to age 11 & up but will work with younger students if they are ready.

Vocal students can receive music reading training if they desire it, but since 30 minutes is a minimum for developing physical foundational techniques and music selections, lessons would need to be 45 minutes or an hour to include vocal sight reading.
I love helping students expand their ability, whatever their starting point. Musicality is even more important than a display of difficult music, so I take time to encourage expressiveness.

Our initial session,
I am interested in learning about each student's personal tastes, and any past experiences and goals. Then we will proceed to explore their instrument, whether it is their own voice or the piano.
A student's goals and resources will influence my choices from a wide variety of curriculum that are beneficial for steady progress. I will collaborate with them to choose musical selections, incorporating their goals and tastes.

___________________________________________________

Enjoying the ability to express oneself through music is of primary importance. While challenging my students to steadily grow in their capability, their appreciation of compositions and ability to communicate them; I also encourage their feedback to assess what works best for them.

I love helping students expand their ability, whatever their starting point. Musicality is even more important than a display of difficult music, so I take time to encourage expressiveness.

Older students need to be able to focus on developing technique and accept the home practice involved to learn ( and in the case of piano "read" ) and expressively sing/ play their selections.

Adult students are self directed and I accept their self pacing for home practice. But where parents are involved, I discuss a practice plan and encourage it. However, a student should never skip a lesson because they didn't practice. We all need a jump start sometimes.

Materials: I will discuss the need for curriculum with students before purchasing items.
Curriculum is chosen based on the students goals. There is a $2 monthly fee for piano students who will benefit from the sequential music games offered online through my teacher account.

About Me

I currently serve as the Bonita L. Bass Memorial Assistant Conductor to the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay (through the Chorale's Graduate Assistantship program with the University of South Florida). At USF, I also assist in rehearsing and preparing the University choirs for performances throughout the year. I am also the founder Cincinnati based vocal ensemble, ascend.

Previously, I was the Director of Music at Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati, OH. At Mt. Washington I directed five vocal choirs; the Chancel Choir, Sacre Voci (adult chamber choir), Celebration Choir (youth choir) and two Children's Choirs. I helped lead the adult choirs and orchestra in performances of Haydn's Nelsonmesse, Rutter's Requiem, Faure's Requiem, Bach's Christ Lag in Todesbanden, and Handel‚¬Ä¬ôs Messiah-Part the First. I also led Sacre Voci in performances of Britten‚¬Ä¬ôs Rejoice in the Lamb and Vasks‚¬Ä¬ô Dona Nobis Pacem. In 2010, the MWPC Chancel Choir was invited and sang in Carnegie Hall, New York, NY under the direction of Dr. Earl Rivers.

Before Mt. Washington I taught in the public schools, teaching vocal music to students from the elementary school level through high school.

In the summer of 2012, I was one of eight conductors chosen to participate in the Professional Choral Institute - Conducting Program sponsored by USF and the GRAMMY nominated ensemble, Seraphic Fire. At the Institute, I led rehearsals with the Professional Institute Chorus and Seraphic Fire. I also participated in masterclasses with Dr. James Bass and Patrick Dupré Quigley.

In January 2014 I was chosen as one of five conductors to lead the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and the GRAMMY nominated Elora Festival Singers as a part of their Choral Conducting Symposium. At the Symposium, I rehearsed and performed with those two ensembles and participated in classes with director Noel Edison.

In June 2014, I was one of three chosen from a national pool to participate in Chorus America‚¬Ä¬ôs Emerging Conductor Masterclass. The masterclass was led by Dr. Anton Armstrong of St. Olaf College and John Alexander of the Pacific Chorale. I directed the United States Air Force Singing Sergeants.

I am currently pursuing a Master of Music in Choral Conducting at the University of South Florida under the guidance of Dr. James Bass. I received a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN where I studied with Dr. René Clausen and Dr. Paul Nesheim.
