Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

Hi! My name is Kristen and I am a 25 year old singer who loves music. I started my music career at the early age of 8 and haven't stopped singing since. Originally from Monterey, CA I grew up singing with my family. It has always been one of my favorite past times to sing with my dad. My family is one of the most important things to me, followed closely by music! Having been both an instrumentalist and vocalist, I feel it is important to not only know how to sing, but to be able to read music and understand what you are singing. After graduating with a music degree from BYU-I, I feel I have the tools to teach these and more.
Through my years as a musician, I have come to appreciate many different kinds of music ranging anywhere from Broadway to opera to Jazz, etc. I feel this gives me the ability to cater to my student's individual goals as musicians. One of my goals as a teacher is to help you to learn to sing what you love while giving you the correct foundation to build on. Music is supposed to be fun!
I believe self confidence is extremely important as a vocalist. "Stage fright" is common thing that holds us back from reaching our full potential. Singing with confidence makes you feel great, and sound even better. Sometimes it is all that's missing from a potentially amazing singer. I have helped many students overcome this road block and emerge filled with confidence and self assurance.

*** Lesson Details ***
Did you know that people can hear a smile in your voice? Smiling while singing actually produces a different sound that is pleasant to the ear. I want this experience to be fun for my students. That said, however, I believe self discipline is a very important aspect of music. I will encourage students to practice regularly and come prepared to learn. I will usually request that students bring a recording device so they can take home our lessons and practice. This also allows you to hear how you sound during lessons and reproduce(or improve) that at home.
During my lessons, we will cover topics ranging from improving your technical skills, basic singing principles, ear training, sight-reading, to theoretical knowledge. We will also discuss voice maintenance. That said, I feel it's important to get out of the lessons what you want, so I don't have a set curriculum. I tailor each lesson to the student.
All in all, I am a patient, fun-loving teacher who will work hard to bring out the very best in all my students. I will neither push too hard nor be too lenient as we strive to reach the goals we have set together.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano and music books provided

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide some music for the student. I would prefer that the student have access to a piano and bring a tape recorder and notebook to each lesson.

*** Specialties ***
Although I was classically trained and studied opera in college, my younger singing experience largely involved musical theatre. I have always been told I am a natural on stage. I strive to instill that confidence into my students because confidence really is half the battle.

Accompaniment, Acoustic Guitar, Arrangement and Composition, Audio Engineering, Banjo, Bass Guitar, Classical Piano, Composition, Conducting, Ear Training, Guitar, Logic Pro Software, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting, Swimming, Synthesizer, Ukulele, Upright Bass

About Me

I have been playing music for 19 years, beginning on piano at age 4. Since then, I have learned the saxophone, guitar, drums, and bass, as well as cultivated a deep understanding of music theory. In the past few years, bass/bass guitar has become my primary instrument. Learning and playing music has enriched my life greatly, and I believe that can be true for you as well.

I have been performing since a young age, and have participated in multiple performing groups over the years. Currently, I am the bassist for The Hot Club of Zion (jazz) and bassist/songwriter for the Merchant Royal (rock).

I am currently attending the University of Utah and I am in the process of completing a Bachelor's of Music in Jazz Performance (Bass). This program has greatly expanded my knowledge of music theory, history, and composition. It has also provided me with the opportunity to work with some of the best musicians in Utah,

I am grateful for all of the joy and satisfaction that music has given me and enjoy helping others experience the same.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, I place emphasis on helping a student determine what their personal goals are, and then tailor lesson plans to those interests. My personal experience has taught me that the best learning environment is one in which the student feels relaxed and involved. As such, I strive to maintain a comfortable, yet professional setting, and consistently communicate with the student about what they want to learn.

Because each student's goals and interests are different, I do not use a specific curriculum. However, I intend to teach all of my students introductory music theory, fundamentals of sound science, and basic songwriting techniques. After several lessons, students will have a better understanding of music-making itself, as well as a clearer idea of what their musical goals are, and how to achieve them.

I look forward to working with you and helping you realize your musical potential.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring a bass guitar or guitar and amplifier. I will also bring lesson materials (i.e. books, sheet music, notation paper, writing utensils) as well as a metronome and recording/playback device.

For upright bass or piano lessons, student would need to have instrument of their own at their home.

*** Specialties ***
I have the most experience with the genres of rock, blues, and jazz, specifically on bass/bass guitar. I have extensive experience with gypsy/straight-ahead swing jazz, classic rock/rock and roll, and modern blues playing. I also have experience playing and, to a lesser extent, teaching country, pop, and gospel.

I am well versed in music theory, both classical and jazz, including scale and harmony theory, song forms, and performance practice.

I have played guitar as a secondary instrument for about 6 years. Though it is not my main instrument, I am very familiar with the fretboard (know every note, etc.), chords, scales, and performance practice. I would be able to teach acoustic and electric guitar. I am familiar with the genres of rock, blues, jazz, and pop.

I have played piano since a young age, and use it primarily as a composition instrument. I have played classical and romantic era music, as well as jazz standards.

My upright bass playing experience has almost exclusively been jazz-oriented. However, I have played blues, country, bluegrass and pop music on upright bass as well. I am confident in teaching those styles on the instrument.
