I just completed my first lesson and it was immediately helpful. I'm really looking forward to on-going sessions and I'm going to bump up the time as well.

Indigo is an excellent voice teacher. In a short time she’s helped me sing better, feel more confident in my singing, and make me enjoy singing more. She listens carefully to how I sing and provides helpful feedback for improvement and opening up my voice. I’m looking forward to continuing to develop my voice with her!

Fully Vaccinated as of 5/19/21!!
Taking up Ukulele was a great way to look at music from a new perspective. I love teaching ukulele to younger kids who cannot make chords on a guitar quite yet as well as adults who are serious musicians that have been playing for years. I welcome everyone from the novice to the hobbyist and do my best work with student requests.

Learning to play the Ukulele is so much fun! Young and old alike enjoy being able to play chords in just a few short lessons to favorite songs. This instrument is especially great for little ones- it's a great starter to string instruments of all types. You can find an inexpensive but good quality Ukulele at most music stores. I teach chords, rhythm and individual note reading so students enjoy themselves while learning to read music!
