As a teacher that cares alot for the student, I get to know excactly what the student likes and needs. Music is fun and a passion so learning it has to be fun as well . We will be listenining to your favorite music as you learn to play to it. The best way to learn is to listen and then playing along with good instruction. Learning rudiments and syncopation, there are asignments to practice in the process.

I have worked as a 6th Grade choir director for the past 3 years. I also have been working with vocal lessons at a private lesson studio. I have a passion for not only working with students with classical and foreign language music but also letting the students sing songs that they want but carefully chosen so they will still learn vocal technique.

About Felicia

I graduated with a bachelors in music education at Western Illinois University in 2012. At the university I received talent grants to play in the symphony orchestra as a violinist, I also sang in the school of music top choir. After graduating I immediately was offered a position at a music studio

She asked me what I wanted to learn and assisted me in a very patient way, and showed me the correct way of strumming and whatever else that was needed. A very good start.
Alyson
Felicia is a great teacher! We work well together, she asks how I want to learn and she helps me to understand what I’m learning! As an adult learner, it helps that she can modify my lesson to suit my specific needs. I think this will be a great partnership!!
Autumn
Felicia has truly helped me improve on the viola. From spotting my wrong bow hold to making sure that I am absolutely positive on where the fingerings are for the key, she has most definetly improved my playing over all and is helping me advance past most of my peers in my school orchestra.

Excellent first lesson
Mike O.
Chris was very patient and provided great advice, examples and coaching. This is my first voice lesson and I am 54 years old and I was very nervous and unsure, but Chris made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am looking forward to the next lesson and I am already practicing. My goal is to improve my singing and perhaps one day be on a local stage playing a small part, something that has been in my system for many years! I believe Chris will provide me with the training that may one day assist me in achieving my goal.

Intermediate classes will involve the circle of fifths and major and minor key signatures, minor, diminished, and augmented chords, inversions, and basic chord progression analysis. In advanced classes, students will learn concepts such as extended harmony chords, secondary chords, more advanced analyses, modes, and special scales. Regardless of a student's level, class material will be geared toward his or her particular needs and goals.
