About Me

I have been a performing singer-songwriter for 15+ years have written roughly 200 original songs and performed hundreds of shows. Music has been an important part of my life and has given me enormous amounts of joy and growth as an individual. Both of my parents are musicians and I was fortunate to have their support and guidance in addition to formal and informal training from various musicians over the years but mostly, I developed my style of playing from many hours of playing and experimenting. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach others the tools needed to start their own journey in music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am both easy going and task oriented. I want my students to get the most out of their lessons which means there is work involved. I have the expectations that they 1) want to learn music 2) want to have fun playing music 3) will do the work

I provide the handouts needed initially and may assign a book after the first month. Students should have an empty three-ring binder handy in addition to owning their own guitar. I recommend supporting local music stores before going to the big chains. I can help with choosing an instrument if my help is needed.

Within 3 months*, the student should know and be able to play and/or sing notes within both the major and minor scales, play major and minor chords (instruments only), understand basic music notation, time signatures, and be able to follow sheet music. Students are encouraged to name songs that they wish to learn to keep them excited and interested in learning.

Emphasis will be on accuracy, performance techniques and having fun!

* results will vary with each student.

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

My performance experience locally and abroad has provided me with a unique insight into teaching what I call a complete singer - stage movement and presence, voice projection, and great vocal tone. I have performed professionally for 20+ years...many years in the Bay Area in the genre of New Music. I have done several recording projects including voice-overs, opera, voice acting for video games, and other special recording projects for organizations.

*** Lesson Details ***
At the first lesson we will discuss your current goals as well as your long-term music aspirations. Together we will create an action plan based on your level and vocal need. We will check-in from time to time to see if your focus is changing or your needs have changed. I am committed to you! Success depends on your commitment to the process of singing and a lot of patience.

*** Lesson Details ***
I pride myself on making my lessons fun and useful at the same time. The most important thing is making sure my students want to learn what I am teaching them. This will make lessons enjoyable and will inspire the student to practice and improve.

I like to take an assessment during our first lesson, asking about the students goals and things they want to work on. I want to know what kind of music they listen to and what kind of music they want to perform. I then will ask the student to sing or play something (assuming they have some experience). This gives me an idea of their current level.

Once I have a clear picture of the student and his/her goals, I'll create a custom lesson plan that focuses on the student's goals and areas of improvement.

For voice students, we'll focus on breathing, stretching, visualization, pitch training, scales and vowels, singing through the "mask", warming up, cooling down, and overall performance. The depth and order in which I show these different pieces to the student will vary depending on the student's current level.

For piano students, I create a custom lesson plan depending on the student's interests. I understand that not all students want to learn classical music, so I don't always follow a single book or method. Lessons plans can include standard classical instruction, playing by ear, and reading chord sheets.
