More important than my conservatory education and my teaching and performance experiences is my passion for teaching music and my undying belief that anyone can learn to sing, play piano, and read music. I'm a graduate of the prestigious Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey and a winner of its merit scholarship.
After performing with the New York and Royal Philharmonics, the New Jersey and Virginia Symphonies, the American Boy Choir and the internationally renowned opera star, Andrea Bocelli, studying opera and piano at Westminster Choir College and performance art and improvisational acting at East Carolina University in North Carolina, and appearing in shows and pageants across the east coast, I found my life's work in 2003 when I began teaching music.
I've successfully taught hundreds of different students since 2003, from 5-year-old with special needs, to middle-aged professional opera singers, to 65-year-old doctors of music. I've created and led a workshop about singing called, "The Whole Body Singer" and written several articles about music and music education. My extensive knowledge of the voice has encouraged and enriched hundreds of singers and prepared many to win competitions, musicals, pageants and auditions. Having both taught myself piano and received formal training at a conservatory has prepared me to teach almost anyone how to play. The intensive training and education that I received at Westminster Choir College in songwriting, music theory and sight reading has benefited my students at every level. My current work as singer and keyboardist in the acoustic rock duo, Timberwood, has strengthened my knowledge of a broad range of styles and genres.
In the lessons that I teach, I'm flexible, positive and encouraging. While I want my students to have fun and love music, not dread it, I expect hard work and persistence. I am caring, patient, nurturing, and compassionate. For piano lessons, I usually allow the student to choose a piece with which to warm up and then move on to technique and repertoire. In my voice lessons, I usually warm up the singer and discuss technique and sight-singing before focusing on song choices. Joan Frey Boytim wrote a book for voice that I like to use, and I like the Estelle Liebling exercises for the more advanced singer. Hanon exercises are a big part of my piano curriculum, and I enjoy the Bastien and Alfred books for young and old. I have used completely random songs pulled out of a piano bench and a karaoke CD for kids. I will use almost anything I can get my hands on if it means effectively teaching music. Parents are always welcome to observe lessons quietly.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an acoustic guitar to bring to voice lessons. I expect my piano students to have a piano, an organ or a keyboard.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical, pop and musical theater singing, classical and pop/rock/chordal style piano, and sightreading, including solfege syllables. I enjoy using Estelle Liebling as my voice method and Hanon for piano technique. I have coursework in jazz and pop theory and songwriting from Westminster Choir College. Teaching special needs individuals is also one of my specialties, and one that I highly enjoy.
I am a flutist and teacher with over 15 years experience in the classroom/private studio currently serving the greater Jacksonville area from Nocatee in Ponte Vedra!
Parents, looking for a fun and enriching activity for your child (ages 4+) that builds brain cells and makes newer, stronger connections? I am one of only THREE Kinderflute teachers in the entire state of Florida! Please inquire about more information regarding the KinderFlute program.
Middle/high school flutists, want to earn a Superior rating at solo & ensemble or make the all-state band? I am looking for students with a desire to go further with their playing while having a lot of fun!
I am also accepting beginning-intermediate level piano students ages 4+!!!
I have teaching experience in several age groups and areas of music education. Most recently, as a band/choir director in Duval County. I have also taught instrumental and general music at the elementary, middle and high school levels in FL and in my home state of Colorado. Since 1999, my private teaching experience has ranged from beginners of all ages to amateur adults and college music majors.
I currently perform as a flutist in the First Coast Wind Ensemble. Previously, I have served as director and played piccolo for the Cow Boy Band in Idaho Springs, CO, and held the piccolo/3rd flute chair in the Aurora Symphony Orchestra, CO.
*** Lesson Details ***
My goal for every student is consistent progress and growth. In our time spent together, we will focus on FUNdamentals and music theory through the use of games, movement, and your instrument. If there is a specific musical selection that interests you, we can explore that as well!
For the beginning student, within the first 3-6 months, we will begin to discover how to read music notation, read/perform rhythms, and produce a quality sound on the instrument. We'll learn how to play some traditional folk songs and begin composing your own works! We will learn HOW to practice and create a routine. I will help you figure out what you really want to learn and achieve that through our lessons as well as your individual practice.
For the intermediate-advanced flute student, we will begin understanding more music theory and different types of scales. Soon, you'll be playing solos with ease and be able to identify patterns in the music. We'll learn about performance practice techniques, breath control, tone production and musicality! We will also learn performance skills, how to work with technology, and how to have a great stage presence in front of a live audience. We will then begin learning more challenging music.
For all of my students, it is a journey that is exciting, unique to each individual, and one that we will embark on together!
Because music is a performing art, I aim to coordinate one to two music recitals each year for students who are interested. This is an optional event, but is highly encouraged as part of the learning experience.
*My studio is in a safe, family-friendly home, and smoke-free environment. We have a small, friendly dog-named Kevin. He is low key and very quiet. You may or may not see him at your weekly lessons. We also have a gray cat, but you probably will not see her regularly. The studio is cleaned thoroughly each week to ensure that pet dander and other allergens are removed.
So! What do you say? Shall we BEGIN THE JOURNEY TO MUSICAL SUCCESS? :)

I have an acoustic, upright piano, CD's, a laptop computer with a subscription to Smart Music, a metronome, pencils, a tuner, and a music stand.
