*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching is simple. The primary goal is to have fun and enjoy the experience of making and creating music. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in music or just wanting to add a bit of a creative outlet to your life, let me help.

My specialties include jazz, r&b, and pop piano styles. I do teach a little classical but primarily to beginners only. My curriculum is simple. I try to teach you what it is YOU want to know and that which fit your needs. There are some fundamentals that we all must learn, but typically I can have you playing a song your first lesson. As you progress, you will be able to learn to play songs on your own and interpret simple chord charts with melody.

For those students who already actively play, I can help hone your skills, offer performance, recording and studio tips and techniques.

90 and 120 min lessons are only offered to those students wishing to learn production and do NOT apply to piano lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Your lessons are given in my pre-production studio in my condo. Lessons take place on a digital piano either a Yamaha or a Casio Privia. If you are taking production classes, then see the list of gear below. My space is tidy but not always immaculate. I am a working musician and often have several projects juggling at once. There is room for 2 to 3 in addition to the student. My living room is always available and wi-fi for those who wait on a student is also available. More than ample parking is available at any time.

Buzz uses Cubase 7.5 recording software
Sibelius 7 Notation Software
Roland V-Synth
Korg Triton

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

Would you like to maximize the potential for your child or for yourself to develop as a vocalist and as an artist? Why not learn from a seasoned professional? I am a professional singer, having performed over the past 20 years with opera companies, orchestras, and theater companies across the United States and in Europe. I love music and I love performing. What I also l love, in fact am passionate about, is helping others to find the richness that comes from learning about music and about performing. I love seeing that sparkle in the eye when one of my students masters that tough song. I love celebrating with a student when he or she gets that vocal scholarship to college, or makes All-State Chorus, or gives a brilliant recital!
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from the University of Georgia, and have also spent two summers studying at the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria. In addition I spent two years apprenticing with Florida Grand Opera in Miami and one season apprenticing with Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown, NY.
I have sung leading roles with numerous opera companies across the country, including New York City Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Washington National Opera, Atlanta Opera, New York Opera Project, Minnesota Opera, Arizona Opera, Hawaii Opera Theater, and Opera Theater of Saint Louis, among many others. I have performed as soloist with orchestras in Atlanta, New York, Birmingham, Anchorage, Flagstaff, upstate New York, and in Paris, France; Chartres, France; Graz, Austria; and Maribor, Slovenia. I've also begun to branch out into musical theater in cities like Atlanta, Toledo, and Shreveport.
I'm certainly not only interested in opera and classical music. I love jazz and rock and pop and Broadway. One thing I've learned from singing everywhere from on stage at Lincoln Center to the neighborhood karaoke venue is that regardless of the genre, the basic technique is the same! I have students who would love to perform on the world's stages. Some, however, would prefer to make their way on Broadway. Some want to sharpen their talents to become the next "American Idol". The great thing about singing at a very high level is that regardless of the type of music, the basics are the same. I can help you or your child develop to the greatest potential. And with a solid technique, you will be able to perform even when you may not be at your best!

*** Lesson Details ***
Each of your lessons with me is tailored to what your goals are. We'll work on proper breathing, good tone production, and confident performance technique. I use several effective vocal exercises to develop these techniques, and I will help to guide you in making good choices in repertoire that you wish to work on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in the living room, one wall is all mirrors, piano

*** Specialties ***
The thing about singing well regardless of genre -- classical, jazz, Broadway, pop, country -- is that it is all based on the one thing, and that one thing is a solid technique. Having a 20-year career as a performing classical singer, my knowledge of classical music is more extensive than, say, my knowledge of country. However, since the basic technique for all genres is centered on good breath control and support, I can help you or your child regardless of the type of music that is desired to be studied.

*** Lesson Details ***
The goal of music lessons is not to just learn the notes and mechanics of an instrument, but to become a well-rounded MUSICIAN. With my lessons, we don't just go through a book page-by-page, rather, lessons are shaped around the musical tastes and interests of the student. Musical theory concepts are applied in actual songwriting and current popular songs. I accompany the students on various instruments, imitating a real performance situation. I teach all ages; beginners to advanced musicians.

Unlike a crowded music store with a cramped little room for lessons, my lessons are taught in a large, open, and well-lit home studio. There is an open waiting area where parents can listen as well. Parking is convenient on a cul-de-sac with a clear view into the teaching studio.
