Janet B. Indianapolis, IN

I teach all levels of piano students from the most basic beginner to the very advanced students. I also teach all levels of voice students from beginner to advanced. I have been teaching both piano and voice for over 30 years. I try to tailor the lessons based on the student's individual abilities and goals. ?Every year, in May, we have a Recital and all students are expected to perform two selections. I also encourage my students to perform in various talent shows in the Indianapolis area, my voice students to join choirs (school, Church, community), and all students to post videos on youtube.

Knowledgeable, Encouraging, Experienced

I came to her studio with no singing experience whatsoever. I was a little nervous to start singing in front of people, especially since I thought my voice had dried up for lack of use. But I felt totally comfortable from the very first lesson and I soon looked forward to singing every week!

After only a few short weeks with her guidance I have increased my range by a perfect fourth up and a major second down! My vocal control has greatly improved and now I KNOW I can sing confidently. Definitely recommend this instructor.
Alex J. Indianapolis, IN

Anytime time I give a student a solo to work on, I always take the approach as if they are going to perform it. Even they are not, I still like to take this approach so that when they are preparing for a performance, they know what to do.

About Chris

I am a certified music teacher and board certified music therapist. I began teaching private piano lessons 8 years ago during my undergraduate degree.  I attended William Paterson University and received a degree in music education.  Upon graduating, I received the William Paterson University 2010 Outstanding Classical Performer award.  I recently earned my master's degree in music therapy at Montclair State University, where I was awarded the David Ott Scholarship for Outstanding Music Therapy Intern.  Learning music therapy has given me deeper insight into my teaching. My favorite part of music is the learning process.  I enjoy performing music, but I personally get more out of learning it.  Teaching allows me to be involved in the learning process ...

Chris is an excellent music teacher

Chris is a patient and encouraging piano teacher, and a positive influence for my son. My son has blossomed as a musician under his guidance, it's amazing how much he's learned in just a year and a half. He is knowledgable and able to explain and demonstrate things in a way that my son can understand. We highly recommend Chris!

Teaching Philosophy

From the amateur and recreational singer to the professional vocalist, my teaching is designed to help singers develop a sustainable vocal technique that is grounded in solid scientific knowledge as it pertains to the anatomy and physiology of the breathing and phonatory mechanisms, as well as the acoustical laws of the singing voice. With all students, I strive to offer an environment of excellence in which the healthiest development of the vocal artist can be achieved. I see that each student be nurtured as an individual and patiently given the opportunity to attain a firm understanding of vocal pedagogy, lyric diction, song literature, performance practices, stage deportment, and all other aspects that help develop an expressive and sensitive artist. More importantly, I aim to provide all of my students with information that will help them teach themselves.

The nature of the human voice is affected by every aspect of who we are—our physical, emotional, ...
