About Me

My name is Fox, and I've been teaching music for over a decade. I studied music at Pacific Lutheran University, and received a Masters Degree in Audio Engineering from the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences. I have been writing music professionally since 2009, and write primarily for film, television and video games under master film composer Klaus Badelt. As a musician, I have performed all across the United States and won a number of awards for performance and excellence.

I am also a professional audio engineer, specializing in recording, mixing and editing. Earning my degree from the Conservatory or Recording Arts and Sciences has allowed me to fine-tune my audio engineering skills on both sides of the glass in recording studios, as well as post-production for film, television and video games.

I want to give this all to you. My desire to teach music is rooted in my love for the art. I love watching people, regardless of age or experience, learn and grow with their talents and gifts. I have extensive experience teaching guitar, bass guitar, voice, choir, musical performance and music theory.

About Me

Hello,

I am a cool musician with a passion for teaching. I grew up singing, and learned much of what I know from being surrounded by excellent musicians. That real life hands on training has helped me a great deal now that I am a Music Education Major.

When I am working with students I like to work with them on a personal, one on one level. I take the time to get to know their needs as an individual artist, and what their goals are, so that I can design a program that works best for them.

As a musician and a teacher the greatest thing for me, is when I see progress in my students. I love to see them transform from just singers into true performers and artist.

I am most comfortable teaching genres of: pop, r&b, soul, acoustic, indie, hip-hop, country, classical, and music theatre.

I genuinely LOVE all types of music, and always keep an open mind to new things!

I enjoy when my students become involved in their lessons, and bring ideas and suggestions to the table. That type of input not only helps them, but it helps me learn more about them as an individual and an as artist.

I am very open minded instructor, and I love working with people with different interest, and diverse backgrounds!

*** Lesson Details ***
When I begin new lessons with a student our first lesson together will be finding out the students goals, what their capabilities are, and what they want to learn. In a first lesson I generally begin by having the student sing a song they are comfortable, and familiar with. Then I assess their vocal abilities, and we design warm-ups based upon their needs and goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice Rooms: space can be reserved, piano and music stand and chairs, parents can sit in on lesson, parking lot near.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If lessons are in a student home we will need a piano, or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I'm familiar with methods used in classical singing, as well as Pop and R&B styles.

About Me

I grew up with music surrounding me. Both my parents play many instruments and they have passed that love on to me and my brothers. I started singing as a toddler and piano and flute came soon after. I love to teach, am patient and help my students to achieve their best. I create an environment for my students to feel safe expressing themselves, making mistakes,laughing and honing their musical language.

In my voice lessons I teach solid technique focusing on bringing out the beauty of each individual's voice giving them the tools to be able to sing musically. I've been told by students that they have learned more from me in 2 lessons then they have working with prior teachers for years.

I earned my BM in Vocal Performance from the distinguished Eastman School of Music. I have earned the Bravo!Scholar and Howard Hanson award as well as first place in the Schubert Club vocal competition. I continue my studies with acclaimed Mezzo-soprano Gail Dubinbaum in Phoenix and I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).

I've sung all over the united states as well as in Germany and Italy. I performed the role of Frasquita in Phoenix Opera's production of Carmen as well as La Fata Azzurra in "La Bella Dormente nel Bosco" and as Sister Constance in "Dialogues des Carmelites" of which I was acclaimed by reviewers to have "revealed a luminous voice, and sang with ease and spontaneity." I have been a soloist with the St Paul Chamber Orchestra as well as with the Eastman Collegium. This past December I was a featured soloist with the Phoenix Symphony and returned to the Phoenix Opera to perform The Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute as well as worked with the Ohio Light Opera performing the lead roles of Hannah Glawari in "The Merry Widow" and Madame Pompadour in "Madame Pompadour."

I'm equally comfortable with musical theater and have played leading roles in many productions including Marian in "The Music Man," Laurie in Oklahoma, Margy in "State Fair," Rapunzel in "Into the Woods," and Mrs. Gardiner in the premier production of "Pride and Prejudice."

My students have advanced in the Classical Singer National Competition, Arizona Fiesta Chorus Competition, Hot Pipes Competition, and have been accepted to and attended summer programs at distinguished music schools including Westminster College and Eastman School of Music. They also perform with local theaters including Copperstar Theater, Moezart Productions, EVCT and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every vocal student will have different talents and struggles and will be at different levels so, I structure my lessons for the individual. However, with every student I focus on teaching correct breathing and healthy vocal use to enhance the natural beauty of the voice.

Overall I have a laid back, humorous personality. I work to help the student achieve their goals whether its to be able to sing better in the shower or to become a professional musician. I offer 2 recitals per year to perform at and often form duets/trio's out of my students. I also offer studio classes for my singers who desire to have more performing experience with immediate encouraging feedback and for my more advanced singers I offer Master classes with guest artists to perform at and attend.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ piano, books, mirror, and seating for parents. Parents can observe if the student is comfortable with that but, I do not allow parents to comment on the student's singing of performance during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If they are a voice student they will need a piano, and they will need to purchase their own music and if possible purchase a recording device to record lessons and technique exercises. If they are a flute student, they will need to provide the music, and the instrument. If they are a piano student, obviously they would need a piano and would provide their own music based on my suggestion.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Opera, Operetta, Broadway, and jazz. I also teach pop, rock and country. On the piano and flute I teach classical and contemporary. I do not teach jazz piano or flute.
