About Me

I hold a Master of Music degree in Music Composition and a Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Education: Vocal Emphasis, both from California State University, Sacramento. I am a member of Pi Kappa Lamba National Music Honor Society and Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society.

I began playing piano at the age of seven and progressively became involved in accompanying and singing. I have played other instruments such as organ, guitar and french horn and also compose original pieces. I have worked as an accompanist as well as a private instructor in piano and voice, and have performance experience as well.

I love sharing music with all people and enjoy the opportunity to share my knowledge. I enjoy working with students of all ages and design all lessons to match the needs of the individual.

I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
As an instructor I offer a relaxed learning environment. While lessons should be structured and productive, they should also be enjoyable. I am adaptable to the needs of each individual student and plan my curriculum choices on that basis. I like to provide a sold foundation in the basics of music theory while also working on technique.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard/amp, microphone, music stands

*** Travel Equipment ***
N/A

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice and piano, as well as music theory. I have personally been involved performing in other styles such as Broadway and pop and compose my own music mainly in contemporary classical.

About Me

Your lessons are designed to help you develop the skills and confidence you need to successfully perform in public. I work hard to prepare your lessons and I ask my students to invest daily time working on skills studied at their lessons. Performing music requires the patient integration of multiple skills over time, however, the rewards are BIG.

I continually update my teaching methods by attending workshops and master classes and I incorporate my knowledge of human anatomy and function, to help you perform with minimal strain. Also, I incorporate internet resources in your lessons to keep them interesting and up to date.

What will your lessons be like?
At your first lesson we will explore and name the parts of your instrument (voice or cello). We'll talk about what you would like to learn, set attainable goals and select songs that you will be successful learning.

In subsequent lessons you will warm up with scales and exercises, using common intervals with basic rhythms to improve your technical abilities and gain musical skills and knowledge, such as hearing pitches and intervals and keeping with the beat. This will also help you learn to read music.

Singers will learn to use breathing to coordinate with your vocal folds to make a beautiful tone and sing on pitch, relax your throat and tongue to create resonant chambers, shape your mouth and tongue to color the tone, and use your tongue and lips to form the words.

Cellists will learn to transfer your body weight into your cello to produce a mellow tone, placing your hands and arms on the cello and bow in a relaxed and balanced manner to allow you to play smoothly and in tune and to prepare you to produce a lovely vibrato. Since cellos don'™t have frets, you will also learn to locate each note on the cello but just a few notes at a time - until you know them all.

You will learn to use your technical skills and knowledge to create musical phrases that sound beautiful and authentic and are fun to perform and listen to. You will need to practice simple skills and phrases repeatedly until they become habit. I will lend you my kind and patient support to help you through the bumps in the road.

Not sure how to practice at home?
To support your practice at home you will: Receive a recording of each lesson to practice with; Learn simple exercises you can do at home; Learn to create and use simple backup tracks of your songs to learn to hear rhythm and harmony; Learn how to use your computer at home to get feedback for pitch, and tone quality.

Nervous about performing?
When you are comfortable you will have three opportunities per year to perform in student programs performing for friends and families.

You will have opportunities to participate and perform in workshops which include performance opportunities, lectures, demonstrations and Master Classes with nationally recognized teachers and performers. And students can earn Certificate of Merit which are recognized by universities.

Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

I recently received my BA in music from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. While the school is not well known for music, the program stressed being as well rounded in as possible with a "Learn by doing" attitude permeating every class. I believe that this attitude is essential to all musicians, regardless of what style they are interested in. No matter if you wish to sing pop or opera, the basics are the same. I emphasize singing in a healthy manner and taking care of your voice. I also believe that most people are capable of singing well.
I have been involved in several Opera scene performances, most notably performing the role of Lucia in the Mad Scene from "Lucia di Lammermoor" and the Marschallin in the finale of "Der Rosenkavalier." With this background, I can help my students learn how to sing in other languages as well as help them with performance practice, proper posture, basic music reading, and giving them access to resources for more learning opportunities.
I prefer to teach beginning to intermediate students. My ultimate goal is to help my students love music as much as I do and to find the voice that is hidden in them.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be separated into three main categories:

1. Warm-ups
This will ready your voice to sing and help prevent damage to your vocal chords
2. Practice
At this point, you will be singing through the piece we have chosen for you to work on. This will take up
the bulk of the lesson.
3. Questions and paperwork
The paperwork will simply be assignment sheets and any other photocopies I feel will help you become a better musician.

You will need a recording device of some sort so that you can listen to the lesson during the week. This will help you remember the warm-ups and the suggestions given for proper vocal production. If this is a problem, please mention it and we will figure it out.

Sheet music will be needed for any song you wish to practice in lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room, keyboard, music stand

*** Specialties ***
I was trained in classical voice, including opera, but I also am trained in pop and a little in musical theater.

About Me

I have been studying and performing music for the majority of my life, starting with piano in the third grade. I started singing in choirs in high school and continued studying voice throughout college. I have a classical background and moved to jazz voice as an undergraduate at California State University of Sacramento. I am excited to begin my graduate studies in Vocal Pedagogy in the spring of 2014!

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching music gives me joy! I create a positive and encouraging environment for students to gain confidence in their performance abilities. Every student is different and I approach each lesson accordingly in order to accommodate each student's needs and expectations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, microphone, sound system, music stand, sitting area for parent(s) when needed. I will provide music and assignments until students can order/purchase their own books.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a metronome for lessons, but each student should acquire their own for practicing purposes. Students should provide a stereo, preferably with an iPod adapter, to listen to musical examples, and a piano for voice or their own instrument for instrumental lessons. I can provide an extra ukulele for lessons, but students should have their own for practicing purposes.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz voice, teaching students jazz theory and improvisation as well as stylistic techniques.

About Me

I have a CRLA nationally certified tutoring certificate and an almost completed AA in music from Sierra College that show I have been trained in this field well. I have been given the training to supply other people with the knowledge I have gained though my years of music experience. I work best with a student one on one so that we can go at your speed and in the way that makes you most comfortable. There is always a goal for each lesson in order to advance your skills but without moving too quickly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If you do not have a keyboard/piano I have an electric one I can bring.
