Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
My approach to vocal training is similar to my approach to teaching piano. I start with a song the student wants to be able to sing well, and we work through any issues like pitch, breath support, modulation, and tone until they are singing well and with confidence. We will also cover exercises for warm-up, strengthening the voice (as someone who plays 100-200 shows per year, vocal health is something I have learned a lot about), and expanding range.

Teaching since:

I am a pianist and singer-songwriter. I recently moved to Denver, Colorado from Des Moines, Iowa. I make a living full-time as a musician, and give piano, vocal, and songwriting lessons in my free time.

I have worked in an official capacity for the non-profit ArtForce Iowa, teaching piano, voice, and songwriting to court-appointed youth. I have also taught piano to adults, and lead an annual songwriting course at the University of Iowa's Young Writer's Workshop.

My main musical project is called Christopher the Conquered. You can look it up online to hear samples of my work and to watch videos of my live performances. My music has appeared in films and commercials as well.

For in-person lessons, I have a portable recording rig that I can use to record students who are ready to share what they've learned, whether it be with friends/family (a great gift) or with the world by uploading the songs online.
