I am an independent music instructor (and photographer). I have trained students in opera, jazz, and contemporary.
I began my piano studies at age eight and began teaching in high school. I have a Bachelor of Arts minor in vocal performance.
I have taught students of various ages and abilities and have been involved in a number of musical groups and productions, such as Opera Scenes, Phoenix Rising, Women's Chorus, the Cincinnati Women's Group, and other various events.
My instruction emphasizes a relaxed learning environment with a focus on the student's needs.
I also teach my students how and encourage them to take care of their voices, as well as their bodies to avoid strain or injury.
What Will Your Child Learn
*Sound, Rhythm and Beat
* Figuring out where the notes are on a page of music
*Dynamics (Loud, soft, etc.)
* Understanding the high and the low notes
*Learning basic but fun songs that they recognize
*Discipline of practicing
*Performing for a teacher
I teach all of these things through:
*The Students Books
*Pictures of the notes
*Videos/Songs that Help the student learn how to read notes
*While we are not able to meet for a regular performance, I try to encourage each student to find at least one opportunity to perform. Whether it be for friends or family, it's so helpful to always have a goal!
Books that I have taught in:
