*Winter-Spring 2015: A limited number of time slots are now available on Thurs evenings. Pay-as-you go scheduling is not encouraged because of time constraints and lack of consistency for maintaining steady progress and reaching your goals. Weekly students are more successful!
Thank you for your interest in piano or voice lessons. My music instruction philosophy is based on teaching 5 important things that musicians must practice:
Singers -- articulation, breathing/phrasing, rhythm, tone and a personal connection to the music.
Pianists -- technique, tone, rhythm, mechanics, and expression
I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and received my conservatory degree and additional training in New York City. I can prepare you to audition, perform and have fun performing better at school, at home and at gigs.
With the training I'm receiving in my graduate studies at BU, I am able to help singers improve the health and longevity of their voice. I can also work with singers who have challenges due to respiratory difficulties, such as asthma, singers who seek accent reduction, singers who stutter, or those with a speech impediment.
Because of my busy grad school program, my schedule is not as flexible as other teachers. After your first lesson, you will be asked to commit to a regular, weekly lesson time. Please plan accordingly.
Music is for all, and I look forward to sharing music with you.
