Singing and playing piano have always been a huge part of my life. I love to perform everything from opera and sacred music to music theater and jazz, and have been performing since I was very young. I earned my Bachelor’s of Music in Vocal performance DePaul University School of Music in Chicago. It was there that I fell in love with teaching, when I taught my first student as part of a course in vocal pedagogy. I have had several excellent and truly inspiring teachers myself with different teaching styles, and so I have a variety of approaches to drawn upon in helping my own students. Vocal technique was not something that came easy for me, and was something I had to really work on. This work on technique has made me a stronger teacher. I know how many different approaches it can take to make something click, so I use the diverse experiences of my own studies to find what works best for that student now. While I am classically trained, I am comfortable teaching all types of singers, because I believe that at its core, what makes a singer great is the same between all genres. My number one goal in teaching is to help my students use their voice in a way that is healthy and allows them the greatest ability for expression, because ultimately, I believe that is what music is about.
I am an active performer and am able to draw upon this experience in my teaching. Most recently, I sang Zerlina in Mozart's Don Giovanni with Connecticut Lyric Opera. Other roles include April in Company with Westport Community Theatre, Despina (cover) in Mozart's Cosė fan tutte for Connecticut Lyric Opera, the messenger in Monteverdi's L'Orfeo at DePaul University, and Maria in West Side Story with the McLeod Summer Playhouse. I have a special love for early music and have performed oratorio by Bach with the DePaul Baroque Ensemble and as part of the Bethesda Music Series in New Haven. I have performed abroad in Austria and Italy, and speak French, Italian, and some German. Because of my experience on stage in opera , music theatre, and recitals, I understand the skills it takes to engage an audience and create a well-rounded performance. I am thus an asset to any student preparing for a contest, audition, or stage appearance. I love helping my students find their unique "voice" through the music in a way that they and others can relate to. Although singing has been my focus in the past few years, I have also been playing classical piano since I was four and still love to play and share this love with my students.

Roland R was born and raised in New York City. He started playing drums at the ripe age of 12. Throughout his schooling, Roland was a member of Concert Bands, Jazz Bands, and Drum Corps. He eventually started to explore playing music outside of school with friends and independent musicians around New York City. Roland's teaching "career" started about 7 years ago, when his baby cousins took an interest in banging on pots and pans with wooden spoons. His interest in helping others develop their ability to express themselves eventually evolved into in-studio lessons with children and adults of all skill levels. Roland has volunteered for non-profit organizations and college now programs in the past. Through his experiences, he's grown accustomed to speaking in front of large groups of students. Whether or not it's a large group or just a 1 on 1 session, patience and tolerance is the key when working with a student. He fully understands the difficulty of training one's mind to do things that seem unnatural. Like playing drum set for instance.
Nevertheless, Roland is adamant about the idea that one's progress is dependent on how much work you put into it. Practice makes perfect! So, Roland cherishes the feeling when he sees that a student(s) is genuinely putting in the effort to practice and/or hone his creative interests.

With a Master's in Special Education from SCSU in New Haven and a second Master's in Psychology from University of New Haven, I combine Teaching with Counseling to pay close attention to underlying skills deficits so we can go back to the confusing areas that students need "catching up" in before learning anything more, thus avoiding anxiety, such as Math Anxiety. I build strength and confidence so that Math is easy and do-able. I also have a PhD. in Counseling Psychology and I use psychology as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Bodyworker in my home clinic to increase relaxation, but I do not use any Massage Therapy or Psychology in tutoring and teaching. My clinical laboratory medicine experience as MT(HHS) and H(ASCP) bring my Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology academics real because I worked in real hospitals saving lives with this academic knowledge I offer to tutor students at home. I have Research experience at Yale Medical School in Epidemiology & Public Health and in Virology. I have 2 years experience in MD medical school in the French-speaking part of Belgium. I teach French. I teach piano. I work with parents well. (I switched from my MD to a PhD.)
