After graduating from Ithaca College with degrees in Vocal Performance and Music Education I spent three years teaching music in public schools. During that time I taught Kindergarten - 4th grade, as a long term substitute, and then 6th - 8th Grade Chorus to 430 students. During my time teaching my program grew at a rate of 30% annually compared to the band and orchestra who struggled to gain 5%. I attribute this success to my style of teaching which is accessible to everyone. No matter the age, I will find out about what you are interested in besides music and use that as a hook to help you understand what's going on in our lessons. Although I am tough, because I want you to get the most out of your time, I am positive and love to laugh. Besides teaching in the public ...
The goal I have for my students is I want my students to really understand why they are doing a particular thing with music, where it being why do we play scales, why is it this key signature, vocal technique, warm ups, etc. I feel what my student is doing internally,and can quickly help them with fixing or adjusting their technique.

Having grown up with a father who ran a guitar shop and a professional singer for a mother, music was just another language to communicate with in our house. Learning to speak through music (and vice versa) taught me how to focus and develop new skills, which helped me in school with anything new that I have ever had to learn. In 5th grade I started playing bass guitar at home, trombone in the school music program, and private lessons for piano.This got me exposed to a uniquely wide range of music very early on. When I was a teenager, I was honored to be the youngest person to study at Victor Wooten's first bass/nature camp in 2000, a star-studded week long master class with some of the world's most decorated musicians in Montgomery Bell State Park outside of Nashville. I played
Singing for stage requires a certain techniques that builds on the foundation of breath control, diction, and projection. With me kids can learn the basic foundation of singing with a healthy sound, and adults can advance these techniques. As a teacher I work with kids from 5-18 develop a healthy foundation for their sound.
