I have taught music and acting for the past 12 years and I never tire of seeing my students progress and discover their talents! I have performed professionally with choirs, a cappella groups and theatre companies and have written and produced 3 musicals in the community. I believe in learning through creativity and the unique and individual interests of my students.
*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in allowing the student to take charge of their own learning. I have developed a program for piano that is geared towards learning the basics and then building on that knowledge by teaching the student to teach themselves. Consequently, I only give students 12 to 15 lessons as they will usually have all the knowledge and skills they need to further their talent. This program is mainly for piano, but I have adapted it to beginning ukulele and bass guitar.
I cater to the students needs and interests, however I do focus quite liberally on theory and furthering my students' creativity. I'm not terribly strict, but I do expect a lot from those I teach.
Acting, Broadway Singing, Dance, Music Performance, Music Recording, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice
I've been singing and dancing since I was 3 years old. I won my first songwriting competition in kindergarten. I played clarinet and piano in elementary school and junior high, and also sang in the chorus, In high school I had to choose between band and choir, so I chose choir. I sang solos in all the talent shows and was section leader for my high school advanced choir, and as a senior I was choir president. I was also accepted into G.A.T.E. (Gifted and Talented Education) choir, which was district wide.
I started my college career at Chapman University in Orange, California as a music major, and trained as an opera singer with Lynn Cole-Adcock, a professional opera singer of many years before teaching at Chapman. After a year of hard work mastering vocal technique and music theory I switched to theatre when I caught the Broadway bug. My first production was Hair!, directed by L.A. acting coach and professor Michael Nehring . Soon I had moved on to Shakespeare, in the summers I worked with Shakespeare Orange County, founded and directed by award winning producer Tom Bradac. By my senior year I was directing plays by Megan Terry and Clifford Odets, that year I won Best Director from my theatre department.
A minor in dance was required for theatre majors, I was lucky enough to take classes from Cyrus Parker-Jeanette and several other renowned professional dancers and choreographers. I earned my Theatre and Dance degree from Chapman University in 1998, and moved to New York City where I spent 10 years pursuing a performing arts career, both in theatre and as a singer/songwriter. I found minor professional success as a recording artist and studio musician, and performed in numerous off-off Broadway theatre productions while teaching theatre and dance to children at the Bronx Community Center and also private voice lessons in the recording studio I worked in.
I also did an internship at the famous jazz studio, Nola Recording on 57th Street in Manhattan where I worked with Grammy winning engineer Bill Moss. My off-off Broadway performances were for two grass roots yet successful theatre companies, Stone Soup and Beggars Group.
I just spent a year teaching music to my daughter's preschool class. I have also had 3 of my voice students audition for X Factor and The Voice. I love to pass on what I know and what I've learned to the next generation of artists and performers. My motto is: you only live once, make it count!
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is fun and energetic, lots of positive reinforcement but also high expectations to do your best and be disciplined, especially when it comes to practicing at home. The only way to really learn is to do it! After 3 to 6 months with me, you should be able to perform a song, monologue or dance routine in front of an audience or for an audition, with complete confidence and skills that will blow them away!
*** Studio Equipment ***

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.
