Guitar, Piano, Singing, Acting
Music lessons are meant to help the student grow in more than just competence in their instrument. They build personal confidence, social skills, and a love for the arts. With my ability to teach piano, vocals and guitar, your student has my experience to tap into as they grow as a musician.
I have been performing professionally for churches, theaters, and restaurants since the age of 16, applying my education and training in the music industry. Growing up, I took piano lessons from ages 5 - 18, then went on to continue my passion for music by taking music composition and theory courses. This allows me to link piano, guitar and voice together in and out of lessons. You, and your student, have everything to gain from hiring me as a teacher!

I enjoy working with all age levels and pride myself on being intensely positive.

Are you looking to sing outside the shower, work on material for your band, build your repertoire, sing in the church choir, audition for a production, become a better lead singer in your rock or pop band, overcome stage-fright or wanting to get to “the next level?” You have come to the right place!
My lessons provide students with an opportunity to deeply explore the voice, build confidence, and to develop healthy and effective singing practices, which can be applied to any style of musical singing.
A well-rounded music education is very important and I have fun and educational resources for learning vocal technique, ear training, harmony, pitch matching and music theory.
I am very fortunate to have performed and studied Classical and Opera, musical theater productions, have sang in Rock, Pop, Country, R&B bands and can bring that real-world experience into the lesson. The student will receive real hands-on knowledge about singing in a variety of environments and how to manage his/her vocal goals!
In addition to being vocally healthy, I encourage self-expression and enhance self-esteem in my students: singers of all ages, skill levels and styles. Plus, it has to be fun, otherwise why do it? Singing is a process and less about the end goal and we train the body, mind and use imagination and it's a very exciting process!
***My students regularly receive scholarships and placement in music schools and programs around the U.S., have won competitions, do well in auditions, are performing in successful bands and/or recording artists.
I am energetic and enthusiastic; actively promote values and traditional teaching practices coupled with the introduction of technology into the lesson. My experience as an educator is to share passion and talent for music with the next generation of musicians and outstanding communication skills. I really care about my students and provide the tools to help them reach their goals!
