About Me

With 2 degrees in music and more than 6 years of teaching experience, I offer piano and voice lessons to any age and any level! I consider the most important aspect of teaching to be creating an environment where a love of music can be discovered and nurtured. Everyone is offered the opportunity to discover and deepen their love of music. I chose to make music my career so that I can guide you on your priceless journey towards becoming a better musician...a better person.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use one set curriculum. Instead, I have familiarized myself with a dozen various curriculum, and choose the best fit for each individual student. I am open to using books you already own as supplemental material and encourage students to share their suggestions in selecting music. Every student has different goals, and I tailor the lessons to meet them.
Within the first lesson, we will set short and long term goals and lesson plans will be made to help you achieve them.
I provide accompaniment and melody recordings for vocal students to practice with.
Material will be sent home with you to peruse at your convenience. This will include articles from music dictionaries, archives, journals and more to give you an opportunity to become a well rounded musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano in living room with waiting area for parents so they may sit in on lessons.
Music stand provided for voice lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Some music may be provided by myself and I am also willing to work with certain books the student may already own. There will be at least one book required for purchase. I expect students to have a pencil and notebook at every lesson.
Water is welcome and encouraged for vocal students.

Parking is available on the street directly outside the studio.

*** Specialties ***
Too often I have seen damage caused to the vocal chords from an instructor's lack of knowledge in developing voices. I am proud to offer voice lessons where I specialize in working with young voices that are still maturing!

I believe in teaching a well rounded curriculum and therefore introduce my students to the styles of all genres.

About Me

Ray Charles once said, "I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me, like food or water."

I believe everyone’s born with a “music part,” but, like our bones and our brains, it needs nutrition and exercise to grow! Born and raised in the Denver metro area, I “grew” mine first through twelve years of private piano instruction, and then by studying voice and music theory at Colorado State University, where I received my Bachelor of Music. I rarely turn down a chance to be involved in anything to do with music; I have sung in multiple university choirs and community theatre productions, I’m a member of an Andrews Sisters tribute trio, and I have played piano and keys for several bands, including Jordyn’s Arc and a number of church bands. I’ve never met a genre of music I didn’t like, and love to continue to discover new bands, artists, and musicals, often through a recommendation by one of my students. My “music part” has definitely been a major driving force in my life!

I began teaching piano when I was sixteen. I was pretty skeptical when my piano teacher suggested I try it; I wasn’t sure I had the patience or the inclination. Much to my surprise, I loved it! The process of building one-on-one relationships around music with individuals of all ages has consistently been one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences of my life. Though there are many ways to nurture musicality, I firmly believe that music lessons are one of the best tools for exploring a person’s musical abilities and tastes— there are few other places where students are exposed to such a wide range of musical styles and genres, few other environments as safe as a music studio or living room to experiment with and build confidence in voice or instrument skills. I love to watch my students develop and encounter their musical identities, and love to share their excitement when they discover a liking for bluegrass tunes, an affinity for jazz, or a love of performing. No matter what shape that “music part” takes, I love helping students to grow and be proud of it.

*** Lesson Details ***
It is my sincere wish that my students’ lessons be something they look forward to, NOT dread! I make every effort for the lesson atmosphere to be relaxed while still encouraging students to actively engage with the lesson material. While I believe that structure is an important element of music lessons, I also know the importance of flexibility in ensuring that the student feels like a participant in his or her studies. For example, note-reading, music theory, and technical/ear-training skills are always a part of each student’s lesson, but rather than establish an unbreakable schedule that dictates the itinerary of every lesson, I often let the student decide the order in which we’ll work through each lesson’s agenda. Students typically work out of various lesson books, chosen based on student age, proficiency, and preference. While most of their practice pieces come from these books, I encourage students to explore their own musical tastes and create a personal connection to their lessons by working on at least one song of their own choosing- popular, jazz, Broadway, etc.- as a perpetual part of their lessons.

Between lessons, students are expected to practice what they learned in previous lessons (and more than just once or twice). While I will always do my absolute best to inspire, encourage and motivate my students to practice, the final decision to actually do it or not is theirs. The only real “penalty” for insufficient practice time is the student’s own slower progress and a limit to the extent we can move forward in their lessons. I ask parents of younger students not to force them to practice, but to help them develop the habit of practicing by setting aside a daily practice time and encouraging them to adhere to it. I can’t guarantee that practicing will always be fun, but I can guarantee it will always be worth doing!

Students are invited (not required) to perform in two informal recitals per year with their fellow students. In cases where enough students of the same playing level desire to improve their performance skills, they have the option of attending monthly group lessons in addition to their private lessons. Group lessons provide students with a monthly opportunity to perform to a small group of their peers and offer and receive helpful critiques.

I believe that the two most important things for a student to receive from a teacher are patience and encouragement— if I didn’t believe that I respond to each of my students with these qualities, I would hang up my teaching hat. I try to communicate to my students at all times that I’m passionate about seeing them succeed. I recognize that every student’s goals are different, and I do my best to help them achieve them, whether they just want to learn enough to be able to play or sing their favorite popular songs, or whether they’re looking to develop the skills to pursue opportunities such as school choirs, musical theater productions, or rock and roll stardom

*** Studio Equipment ***
F/W keyboard in private room w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will obtain curriculum with the expectation of reimbursement from the student or student's parents, and I expect students to provide a piano or full-sized keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I have always taught piano with Faber and Faber or Alfred, although I'm also familiar with Pace and Bastien.
When it comes to vocal pedagogy, I was classically trained and so usually concentrate more on art song.

About Me

For as long as I can remember, music has played a large part in my life. By the age ten, I already knew that music would be more than just a hobby for me, it would become my career. I have been singing for over 20 years, and began playing piano when I was eight years old. I received a BS in music industry studies with an emphasis on business, from the University of Colorado Denver in 2008. I have extensive experience in performance and the music industry as a business, and have had the pleasure of experiencing the local music scene first hand while playing in bands. My years of experience enables my students to learn different aspects of music from the fundamentals, to writing, and even the music industry as a business. Students should expect to quickly grasp the basic skills such as proper breathing and posture, and will start singing or playing right away. I truly enjoy sharing my love of music and the industry with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music lessons should be fun but educational. I want to know what your goals are and what you would like to get out of your lessons. Each lesson will be tailored to your specific goals and situation, so that you can get the most out of our time together. Whether music is a hobby, a career path, or something in between, you can expect to learn what interests you most. We can focus strictly on your instrument, or even go beyond and talk about song writing, or the music industry.

About Me

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

My favorite singing styles include: musical theatre, commercial, and opera.

Instrumental techniques are vastly arranged by what the student's goals are.
I love teaching a variety of styles. I believe in a diverse repertoire.

I plan on getting my Master's Degree in Performance and Choreography from CU Boulder.

*** Lesson Details ***
I start out with the parts/anatomy of the instrument. Once there is a fair understanding of the equipment being used the student can gradually respect and confide in the instrument.

I am 100% for the sake of efficiency. A performer's "Use" is all about how the musician utilizes the primary control. Proper technique is crucial to ensure the longevity of a musical career/endeavor

Every student in the world has a different learning style. Visual, auditory, kinesthetic, or some combination of all of them is taken into consideration with every, single circumstance.

The opportunity to expand the mind and body to music is certainly a wonderful, yet individual experience.

About Me

Michelle is active as both a performer and voice instructor. After a recent performance, Opus Colorado raved that “She has an absolutely enormous voice that is full of power and emotion.” As a soloist, Michelle has performed with such professional organizations as the Denver Philharmonic, the Salem Chamber Orchestra, and the Willamette Master Chorus. In November 2012, Michelle sang the role of Die Mütter in Hänsel und Gretel with the Lamont Opera Theatre. That previous May, she was featured as the soprano soloist for the Ralph Vaughan Williams Sea Symphony with both the Lamont Chorale and the Lamont Symphony Orchestra, and she also sang the role of Madame Pompous in Edwin Penhorwood’s Too Many Sopranos. In February 2012, she performed in a master class for world-renowned baritone Paolo Gavanelli. In 2010, Michelle participated in the northwest premiere of Ned Rorem’s Our Town. In March 2009, the Grace Goudy Distinguished Artist Series of Willamette University sponsored Michelle to sing the role of Fiordiligi as a guest artist in Così fan tutte. In February 2007, she sang the title role in Puccini’s Suor Angelica. Michelle previously sang the role of The Countess in Act II of Le Nozze di Figaro and performed with the Salem Chamber Orchestra as a winner of the Willamette Solo & Aria Competition in both 2005 and 2006. In March 2006, Michelle sang selections from Songs from Jewish Folk Poetry for a festival honoring the works of Dimitri Shostakovich. In April 2006, her composition Two Sketches for String Quartet was debuted by the Oregon Symphony Quartet. The following month, she performed in Carnegie Hall as a member of the Willamette University Chamber Choir.

Michelle graduated from Willamette University in May 2007 with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, where she studied voice with Allison Swensen-Mitchell, choral conducting with Dr. Wallace Long, and composition with Dr. John Peel. In June 2013, Michelle graduated with a Master of Music from the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver and her May 2013 graduate voice recital was honored as a Recital of Distinction by the voice faculty. Michelle is currently a voice student of Larry Glenn and Sara Bardill while pursuing a Performance Certificate in Vocal Performance at the Lamont School of Music. She was recently a voice instructor for Keizer Academy of Music & Arts in Keizer, Oregon and taught voice as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Lamont School of Music. Michelle also recently took a step behind the scenes to work as the Assistant Stage Manager for the Lamont Opera Theatre’s wildly successful production of Oklahoma! First a native of the Philadelphia suburbs and then a long-time resident of the Pacific Northwest, Michelle now resides in the Denver Metro Area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Expectations:

1. Please arrive on time for your lesson. If you are late, I cannot guarantee that the time will be made up.

2. Come prepared! Practice the previous lesson’s assignment, bring assigned materials to your lesson, and complete your journal entries (if applicable).

3. Order new materials as soon as they are assigned. The sooner you have the materials, the sooner we can forge ahead in learning activities! If you are worried about costs, try your local library or a local college/university library.

4. Have fun! Learning to sing is a crazy adventure. I guarantee you will face adversities, but do not let it get you down. Every singer must learn to forge through roadblocks and will ultimately gain a great deal of strength and experience. If you find something to be particularly agonizing, do not hesitate to bring it up at your next lesson, and we will work through it together!

*** Specialties ***
I teach classical singing methods to students of all ages. I specialize in teaching through use of age-appropriate art songs, folk songs, and arias. I also offer beginning students the chance to learn essential musicianship skills like note-reading, terminology, and the basics of rhythm.

Classical singing is demanding and requires both physical and mental maturity. Although each student is different, I believe that most students should not consider private voice lessons before the age of 13. Lessons offered to younger students will teach and reinforce basic musicianship skills, while offering a healthy introduction to vocal singing that does not ask too much of the singer too soon.
