Lesson Details

Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My philosophy is simple: everyone can sing. Some are more naturally gifted, and some may just need guidance, but everyone CAN sing! Whether you're preparing for an audition and only need a few lessons, or you are interested in an ongoing vocal education, I can help. As a classically trained musician, I understand the power and importance of technique, applying it in my lessons no matter the goal of the student and no matter the genre they're focused in. By implementing the breath, I work to unveil my students' unique strengths and this allows them to blossom as performers.

Before I am a teacher, I am first and foremost, a performer. I believe this puts me at an advantage as a music teacher because I not only have formal training to educate, but I also have the experience of performing. I know how music involves our passions, emotions, our dreams and our fears, that all our complexities as human beings can perfectly be communicated through music. This is why I turn to performance time and time again. There is, no doubt, so much to be said on the intellectual and educational benefits of learning to play an instrument, but I don't think that is the reason many students want to learn. Rather, it amounts to being an outlet of creativity for the student.

In lessons, I try to take a balanced approach by exposing students to every aspect of music: theory, technique, expression, history, and composition. They're ALL important in music lessons! Within a well-rounded music education, I encourage students to apply both rigor and patience in what I assign. Lastly, no two students are the same; everyone has different needs and goals and comes with their own unique set of traits. I diagnose accordingly and work to uncover each individuals' strengths and weaknesses.

I went into this very nervous as an adult trying to work on my singing to accompany my guitar playing. She really made me feel at home and comfortable. I improved drastically and get cheers when I do karaoke even now. She even helped me improve my musicianship while playing guitar and singing. My confidence is at an all time high. I highly recommend her.

Beatrice has taught my two children for a year. I am impressed with how they have advanced under her tutelage.

Beatrice does an amazing job training her students to sing with not only passion, but also technique. Personally, her coaching has helped me a great deal, and I can see a huge improvement in my singing from when we first started!

My experience of Beatrice has been awesome, as has my son's (who has been taking piano with her for almost one year). Beatrice is dedicated to each of her students, as is evidenced by her continued support and encouragement in all their accomplishments, including timing and theory. Piano is a difficult instrument to teach, especially to children. The recitals her students participate in are a testament to her abilities to be one of the best teachers out there. We will continue with Beatrice!

Beatrice is an amazing instructor and guide who makes you love the music you're learning along with the history of that music. She makes you feel that you're a part of that history. She brings you along from day one on theory and technique to help you understand the emotion of the music you're playing, while emphasizing the precision necessary to bring about the beauty you want to realize. Her love of music shines through in every lesson and becomes infectious. And all this using Face Time after working all day! Yet I continually look forward to our lessons. You'll be very happy you found her.
