I am a flutist, keyboardist, vocalist, director, composer, arranger, and educator who has performed in chamber ensembles specializing in Baroque repertoire since 1998. I have over twenty years of professional flute and piano performance as well as instruction on those instruments to my credit. My studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison covered the theoretical, historical, and performing aspects of music. My coursework in Madison led me to researching the secular cantatas of Christoph Graupner in Darmstadt, Germany on a Fulbright.
In addition to interest in performing newly-composed music for traverso and harpsichord, my recent work with many different people as a church music director has led me back to a want to teach full time. Helping students of any age learn to play the flute, recorder, fife, traverso (baroque flute), or piano as well as furthering knowledge in sight-reading, improvisation, and history is the goal. Additionally, I want to help music students of all ages find other people just as passionate about music with whom they could collaborate.
I look forward to working with you!

I have a broad classical education with a great deal of music experience. I received my professional education in the University of Oregon's School of Music, where I specialized in Opera Performance and Languages, and at the Music Conservatory in Perugia, Italy. I also studied History and Philosophy, History of Performance Techniques, Acting, Italian and French diction and phonics, and Music Performance Theory. While in Oregon, I performed with Eugene Opera! Company and the Oregon Symphony. I am a Certified Singing Vocal Specialist. I also have experience as a Music Librarian, specializing in music manuscripts, recordings, indexes and scores.
Academic tutoring and Private Voice Lessons are available, weekly or bi-weekly, using solid classical singing technique. Training in Opera arias, and Broadway songs, Ballads or Jazz. For children I can teach reading, writing, music appreciation, reading sheet music, written music theory, ear training, different styles of music and rhythm, or the cadences and intonations and rhythms of Romance languages. Vocal Training is also available for Pageant Preparation, College Preparation, Actors, Audition Preparation, Corporate/Public Speaking, and ESL practice. All ages are welcome to inquire.
I believe in a holistic physical approach to singing. Your body is your instrument, and whole body exercise is essential to building stamina, and I can direct that development. With increasing strength and deep breathing, a singer can relax, and the sound will carry. There will be no need to strain or "belt it out" with proper preparation and technique, and you will be heard in the back row! It is also ideal to understand the words and their meanings in each phrase of the music or selection. I can help you interpret songs or audition pieces in a variety of languages. You will learn the natural pacing of each song and explore the meaning and emotional effect you can express! Each voice is unique. Let's work together to find music which is uniquely suited to your voice!
