Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and have my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University. I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor. I am currently in my second year at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University for my Masters in Opera Performance.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I teach voice, flute, piano, and clarinet, and have experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

**if you need a particular time slot or one not listed on my availability I will do my best to accommodate your needs**

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, clarinet, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.
Life coaching!

Brenda has been teaching my 7-year-old piano for 2 years.
She is prompt, polite and professional.
She is a great teacher and he has really learned a lot. He loves sports but I never have to fight with him to practice piano.

Brenda was very good with my daughter who is 10 years old. She assessed her skills level and they hit the ground running.

I found Brenda to be responsible, flexible, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with. She is very good at tailoring lessons to meet your needs -- so don't be afraid to ask for something! She works well with all ages, teaching three members of my family. She has some great experience, and I encourage any one to contact her for information.
