Overview

I am an excellent and very experienced musician and vocal/piano coach. I focus on technical skills, creative expression, theory, a beautiful sound, body mechanics and enhancing the joy and appreciation of Music. I have a Master of Arts degree in Music and Education from Sonoma State University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. I studied Classical, Jazz, Pop, Musical Theatre, Sacred and Folk Music. I vary my lessons to gear to the students interests, goals and learning styles. I am very happy to be engaged in teaching, and to pass along my passion for Music.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons, I review the student's objectives and build my lesson plans around these goals. I make learning fun. I emphasize dedication and committment to the lessons and practicing. I teach the fundamentals of Music with a practical and easy-to- learn approach. I teach technique, expression, creativity, varied musical repertoire that is based on the student's interests. I coach a style of singing called bel canto. This style stresses ease, purity, evenness of tone production and an agile and precise vocal technique. This can be applied to any genre of Music. In my piano lessons, I teach Suzuki, Faber and Keith Snell methods. These methods focus on dexterity, proper fingering, positioning and fluidity. I also emphasize making beautiful sounds with proper body mechanics. I start the lessons with vocal and piano warm-up exercises such as scales and drills. I make these methods fun and easy to learn. After 3-6 months you will be able to read music, sing the songs you would like to learn, and perform in a recital or personal venue.
