I have played piano for 20 years and sang almost as long. I had professional voice lessons from Daniela Opravialova, retired opera singer, for 6 years and have performed on local stages in several leading roles. I am a proficient sight reader who participated in All State Chorus for 6 years and was awarded the music departmental plaque for the class of 2004. I have a focus on opera, musical theater, folk, and intermediate piano.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fairly laid back instructor who will focus on your improvements and showcase your talents through performances. I will use a variety of curriculum varying from theory (to teach you how to read your music) to vocal techniques and performance pieces. In a few months I will have your vocal range strengthened and you will play piano with more confidence. I will start with your lowest ability and work up to more difficult pieces whether in piano, voice, or both. I do not travel to private homes, and only teach in my own home studio. I ask that all students are able to read.
