I am a certified music therapist (MT-BC), vocal instructor (BS in Classical Voice), certified yoga instructor (200+) and Reiki master. I am a professional freelance editor, working on a collection of nonfiction essays. I am a meditation guide. All of the subjects I teach through TakeLessons are related to one of the aforementioned areas. I am a person who finds joy in a variety of places, and I truly love what I do.
Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances and developmental delays.
As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.
I have worked professionally as an editor of scholarly writing on both the college and post-college level, as well as a professional editor of multiple dissertations, and other publications. Being a creative person, I find language to be a wonderful way to express thoughts and emotions as well as communicate deeply with others.
As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout Westchester. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized classes offered to deepen your experience.

My experience as a musician spans over 25 years in study, performance, education, and recording.

Past and present professional performances and sessions include work with:
Blue Man Group / Iggy Pop band / Chuck Berry keyboardist Vic Lane / Count Basie Orchestra / Mass. Lions All-State Concert Band / B Street Blues (r)

My passion is to see my students advance in their studies, and have fun learning as much as I have to share. The reward for me is a student's success, and that success is defined by you.
*** Lesson Details ***
As a parent, uncle, and sibling of 5, I learned a long time ago what it means to be patient!
I know that every student grows on their own, and I always consider this in customizing each student's curriculum. This helps the student learn at a comfortable pace, while enjoying their lesson plan.
After 3 to 6 months, most students are well ahead of their age group in theory, harmony, and performance. If you have a song you want to learn, I'll not only teach you the song, but the how's, why's, and when's of it.
We'll get down to the business of learning, but my students are sure to have a good time learning. That's what matters to me as an instructor, and mentor. Remember, music is everywhere, and it is a gift that everyone can enjoy, and the most important part of my life is sharing the passion for music with my students.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Bass and guitar amplifiers, electronic keyboard, 4,5, and 6 string basses, electric guitars, alto sax, digital recording tools and access to the internet for resources as needed.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide books (for sale), stand, amps if necessary, music stand, tuner for use during lessons. I can provide instruments for sale or rent as well.
I expect students to have an instrument in decent condition, and a plan or direction on what they wish to accomplish.
*** Specialties ***
Electric Bass: Beginner to Advanced
I am partial to jazz, blues, rock, funk, folk and classical for bass.
Serving northeast, central MA and Southern NH
I use a customized method, per se, as I incorporate several styles to suit a student's individual goals. No two students are the same!
