*** Lesson Details ***
Members of my studio are always at the top of their game. With a mix of challenging material, effective practice techniques, and a great deal of fun, I push my students to help create their own musical paths. For beginners, I equally emphasize fundamental pedagogy, music theory, and artistry, in a variety of musical styles. They learn correct breath control, posture, and sound production to facilitate good habits to last a life time. After 6 months, my students have always improved 10-fold, exhibiting confidence on performing, self-evaluation, and independent musical discovery.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room equipped with music stand, keyboard, instrument stands, metronome/tuner, computer for recording and listening, and other resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my instrument and certain copies of exercises. Students should have their own instrument, music, pencil, music stand, etc. Metronome and tuner preferred. Voice students must have a keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
Gordon method-sound before sight, learning to hear music and create a beautiful sound and using reading and theory skills to enhance musical growth.
Chamber Music-learning to play with accuracy and nuance and learn musical roles in various pieces of literature.
Regular Warm-up/Technique Practice- establishing routines for students to focus on development of their voices or instruments in addition to the performance based literature, may include tone exercises, scales/arpeggios/chords, dexterity exercises, breathing, etudes, etc. Includes lots of pedagogical knowledge so students can have very focused at-home practice
Recording- lessons and practice sessions can be valuable to a student for self-evaluation and getting the most out of lessons to really hear what a teacher is suggesting after the fact.
Duets and other ensemble playing in the lesson to give the student to relax and not feel under pressure.
