I am a musician/ singer / songwriter/ music educator and I moved to Brooklyn in 2006! I currently hold three NYS teaching certifications (in Music Education K-12, Childhood Education 1-6, and Students with Disabilities 1-6). I attained a Bachelor of Music Degree from University of Miami where I majored in Vocal Jazz Performance and minored in Jazz Piano. The University of Miami provided incredible opportunities for me to study and perform with jazz greats such as Kevin Mahogany and Kurt Elling. I am so appreciative to everyone I met there because it really molded me and prepared me for a professional career in music.
I received a Master of Science in Education Degree from CUNY Brooklyn College where I dually majored in Childhood Education (grades 1-6) and Students with Disabilities (grades 1-6). I ascertained a Master of Music Education Degree from Teachers College, Columbia University. I currently teach at an elementary school in Brooklyn, although I have experience teaching vocal and piano students of all ages. As a Music Educator, I teach General Music, direct Chorus, create/produce/direct two musical productions every year and help my 5th grade students prepare for their junior high talent tests...all while having the honor of teaching private lessons to students for whom I can scaffold individualized instruction.
I have over 20 years of professional performing experience: since the age of nine, I have been performing and recording music. By the age of 14, I released two albums in the USA and Canada. I have a plethora of training and knowledge in all areas of performance and the music industry. My experience, education, and abilities as a musician enable me to motivate and support my students in reaching levels far beyond their goals and expectations.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very passionate teacher, as I am passionate about our art. I believe in scaffolding lessons in order to meet the needs of my students. Each lesson will be driven to meet my students needs/ goals. Students of mine will be expected to practice each week and complete special assignments that will help them grow as artists. These assignments will be interesting and useful. Our lesson structure will always begin with tailored vocal exercises, then we will work on personal repertoire, followed by a reflection portion at the end. Students will be expected to keep all lesson materials in a 3-ring binder.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I ask that all students have a 3-ring binder that they can bring to our weekly lesson.
If I am traveling to you, it would be optimal if you have a keyboard / piano (if not, it's okay because I have many technological resources for accompaniment!)
If you come to my studio, I have a piano, so you just need to bring yourself and your binder!
*** Specialties ***
Commercial Singing (r&b, pop, rock, etc), Jazz, and Musical Theatre are some genres/areas in which I specialize. Also, I am a songwriter so I can support my students in that area as well.

I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
I have a Master's Degree (2013) in Education teaching various subjects and Masters in Biology (2013), both from Nova Southeastern University.
I teach various subjects for over 6 years using the traditional a methods.
I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new information needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always encourage my students to tell me about their preferences, so I can incorporate them in their lessons.
*** Travel Equipment ***
The students needs to have their books & materials available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place to be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.
*** Lesson Details ***
30 minute lesson - Typically do 10 to 12 minutes of warm-up and the rest of the time is devoted to practical application of technique to your songs, as well as, performance aspects. I also offer hour lessons.

Formerly employed by the non-profit Playworks: Education Energized and currently volunteering for GoSTL as well as the Megan Meier Anti-Bully Organization… I have a degree in Sociology and Anthropology and was raised to not make money but make a difference…. however I do need to pay bills like everyone else :)
my passion is with kids, I love organizing games that trick them into learning under the guise of playing. I have been successful with this by my natural silliness, resourcefulness, dedication and approachability.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
