Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
I have been playing piano since I was 6 years old! I love to work with beginner students and give them the tools to be a great piano musician. I focus on proper technique, basic music theory, and a wide variety of repetoire, all while having fun together! I cant wait to help you learn to play.

I typically begin students on the Alfred Music Library, and then move to more classical repetoire, supplementing with pieces or genres that the student has interest in!

Typical lessons will include warm ups (scales, arpeggios, other techniques to warm up the fingers), working on repetoire (may include folk songs, broadway/disney, pop, worship), music theory (note and rest values, key and time signatures, interval recognition, ear training, note recognition, etc.)

Materials that students will need are a piano/keyboard of their own, two lesson/recital books recommended by me, and a theory book.

** If students are online, they will need a way of setting up their webcam/phone in order for me to see their hands play.

I was pleased with the things that I learned with Brittany. She was very welcoming, and I wasn't intimidated to sing for her. She did a good job at seeing areas that needed improvement, yet was very kind in how she pointed them out.

Brittany is a wonderful teacher! She takes time to get to know you and determine what it is you want out of each lesson. I am so happy I found her! I feel improvements after each lesson.

I met Brittany when I joined the Lancaster Chamber Singers a year and a half ago. We both sing in the Soprano section. As a Master’s level music educator myself, I recognize that Brittany has the skills necessary to teach a student, of any age, how to sing with proper breathing and technique.
She not only is an excellent singer, but also a very passionate and caring individual. Brittany babysits my daughter on occasion, and my daughter loves spending time with her. Her communication skills are commendable. She does a very nice job of communicating what she wants in a caring, yet direct manner. She is also fantastic at reading situations and altering her methods accordingly. All of these qualities make Brittany an excellent teacher. I definitely recommend her to anyone seeking to take voice lessons!

Brittany is equally talented vocally as she is at teaching it. Her background in music makes her a wonderful teacher as she has had many experiences in her own life with vocals. She is extremely friendly and easy to work with!

Brittany works hard to train her students well. She is herself a well-trained musician (I've heard her in multiple concerts) who is committed to producing students who not only sing accurately and with good technique, but also with musicality. Brittany is gentle and loving with children and seems to know what "works". Brittany has always been very professional in her work (dress, punctuality, politeness, etc.).

I've known Brittany for years. We grew up in the same town, where she became something of a celebrity for her amazing voice. People would show up to community events just to hear her sing! She has an amazing range, and a real ability to entertain. I have received invaluable vocal advice from her over the years, which I now share with students of my own! I am a huge fan of Brittany's, and I highly recommend her! She is especially phenomenal with children and teens.
