I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from internationally recognized Baldwin-Wallace College. I have been playing and touring professionally for 9 years now with a band called Ward 9, and 4 years with a band called Dan Miraldi & The Albino Winos. I currently produce and run my own recording studio, and offer lessons as well. I am certified to teach all ages, any instrument, but focus mainly on bass, guitar, piano and vocals.
*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me, students can expect to move just a little faster than their perceived pace. I say this because students feel like they can accomplish A, but I know they are capable of more! They can expect to be held accountable to correct technique and gain a fundamental base of music theory as well. If they put in the practice time, they can expect to achieve much success with me.

While at CIM, she received the Frederick B. Prentice Award for Excellence in Voice, and at DePauw, she received the prestigious Performer’s Certificate. In 2008 and 2009, Ms. M. earned four first place awards in the NATS Great Lakes Region competition.

Ms. M. is a featured alto soloist with the Fairmount Presbyterian Church choir and has performed recently with Opera Night Cleveland. She currently studies with tenor Clifford Billions.

It is my belief that everyone has an individual learning style, and therefore, not everyone can be taught in the same manner. I develop a curriculum based on my students' individual needs and strengths as opposed to developing a single curriculum to be used by every student. Younger students will receive general music lessons with less emphasis on singing to preserve vocal health. These lessons will include basic piano skills, rhythm, music reading, music theory, and aural training.
Areas of Study:
Students study technique, posture, breath control, musicianship, and vocal health. I also incorporate music theory, ear training, and sight reading into my lessons. In order to teach proper diction and vowel production, I use the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). Students interested in studying additional French, German or Italian diction can arrange diction coachings outside their regularly scheduled lesson, just as students wishing for additional music theory, ear training or sight reading may schedule separate lessons.
