Hello! Here is a quick description of my studio information: I have been teaching private piano, voice and music theory lessons for over 18 years. While I consider myself foremost a performer and composer, I love sharing the joy and understanding of music with students young and old. With 25 years of performance experience, I have a wealth of knowledge and excitement for the art to share with my students from both the classical and musical-theatre repertoire. Voice â all ages (15 and older) focusing on bel canto techniques, predominantly utilizing the Marchesi Method (importance on intellectually understanding both the technical and the aesthetic nature of vocal music, from grand arias, show stopping Broadway solos to simple vocal exercises) Piano â all ages (5 and older).
Each student is uniquely given music at their learning skills level and as they progress musically. Lessons are planned for their best successes and the most fun to learn how to play the piano. A selection from available music methods or music piece(s) best for the student is chosen, as well as learning techniques for playing advancement, sight-reading, ear training and theory --- all are essential parts of each student's lesson.

I teach beginning piano, which includes basic music theory.
I have a graduate degree in vocal performance from California State University Northridge, and an undergraduate degree in music with a minor in theater from Edgewood College. As a teacher I have worked with a wide variety of voice types in many different age groups. As an acting coach I specialize in audition preparation, monologue delivery, and general stage presence. I teach out of my home studio, located just outside of Damascus, MD, where I live with my wonderful wife, cat, and ducks. I am also an active performer, primarily singing opera, throughout the region. In addition to teaching voice and acting, I also teach beginning piano lessons.
