My musical life began during the "folk boom" of the 1960's. I began songwriting and performing during my high school years. Later I was a member of a folk-rock band called The Bean Angels. We preformed and recorded in the Iowa City, Iowa area. Later I attended Montana State University where I studied music education. My training included: piano skills, music theory, music history, aural perception, conducting, and vocal pedagogy. I have several decades experience in teaching. I have taught guitar, piano, voice, and ukulele, and have directed a children's choir. *** Lesson Details *** I believe that each individual has his or her own particular learning style and pace. Accordingly I try to tailor my instruction to best fit the individual student. The first lessons will ...
I've been teaching chorus and doing private voice lessons for almost 10 years. For the past years, my students in private singing lessons have gained a basic understanding of vocal anatomy and become more skilled in correct breathing technique, moving between vocal registers and producing balanced tone. I usually select an age appropriate song for my students to learn for each session, and each skill the students learned during the lessons will be applied to the singing of that song.

I want to help you find your voice and express yourself -- to SHINE and have a lot of fun in the process! I'd like to pass along some of my expertise and knowledge to you. I've been a performing vocalist all my life, with formal training beginning in high school, continuing into college and into my career as a professional musician. I have "stage" experience (choral, broadway musicals, opera) AND experience in the "band" arena, performing vocals and/or bass guitar and guitar for rock, pop, R&B and jazz gigs.
Hey there! I've been performing music for as long as I remember. (I used to give concerts for all the family gatherings!) I've been formally performing in music for over 30 years. I have formal training and 8 years of teaching experience. I teach with positivity, patience, and perseverance and help you express the music in you! *** Lesson Details *** All of my lessons are customized to your needs, preferences and goals. No matter what instrument or skill level, I'll take you through the basics and help you build solid practicing fundamentals. I'll also help you develop your performance and, depending on how serious you'd like to get, I can also teach you to read music and learn music theory as well! I balance learning and technical skill with fun and self-expression. *** ...
My specialty is in classical voice technique, whether that be for opera, art song, musical theatre, pop, or R&B.
*** Lesson Details *** NOTE: I prefer to teach students ages 11 & up. I will accommodate younger students, but as vocal development is a direct reflection of physical development (the instrument is the body), we will be unable to delve deeply into technique. Instead, the curriculum for younger students will include musicianship and piano skills; they will be more of music lessons that incorporate singing rather than "vocal" lessons. My current studio consists of all sorts of singers including classical, musical theater, R&B, and pop. In classical voice lessons, we will be learning songs not only in English, but also Italian, German, and French. Classical voice lessons may not be for everyone, however, and we will learn repertoire that suits the interests of each student. I ...

I want to teach YOU the language of music! That's right, music is a LANGUAGE. Perhaps you've never thought about it, but just like English, music has a vocabulary, and a system of methods to put things together. Just like a language, ANYONE can learn it. Ever taken lessons? I have, and I know first hand how boring it can be. You learn to read music notation, learn some Hanon exercises, maybe even a few songs...but it just doesn't click. Well learning the language of music is the missing ingredient! Once you speak it, you can create! From your very first lesson with me, you will have fun creating music. ABOUT ME: What qualifies me to teach? As a full-time musician and teacher in the DMV, I know how to APPLY music theory. I've been performing for over 15 years and ...
With degrees in voice from Oberlin Conservatory of Music and Indiana University, I am a classical soprano, however I love to teach all genres of music! With students of all ages, my focus is on a healthy pedagogy and on a fun, technical approach. It's all about the breath! I have been teaching since 2004, in each lesson we will focus on body work, technical training, ear training, and repertory work. I look forward to meeting you!
Music is a calling, it chooses you. I once had Marilyn Horne in a private lesson tell me that if music isn't what I think of first upon waking and last before falling asleep, I should find another job! Singing is what has always fulfilled me and sharing that with others, helping them find the power of their unique instrument and fall in love with the art form is what lights me up inside.
