Ms.Cindy's' entire teaching philosophy is that of fun, with music theory and music literacy being a priority. Her enthusiasm and dedication to training the musicians of tomorrow is evident. She believes that music should be a pleasurable, positive experience to boost self-esteem. The main focus is on helping students gain the skills they need to enjoy the arts long after the lessons are over, for a lifetime.

Why Take Music Lessons: There is ample scientific research to demonstrate that students of all ages enhance their brain function, improve their reading and math performance, and increase both their IQ and SAT scores as a direct result of their involvement with music. These students develop creativity, self-expression, and problem solving skills while building self-esteem, discipline, cultural awareness, responsibility and cultivation for the joy of learning. This gives them a sense of achievement and personal worth.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice Lessons:
The goal is to help you access the core of your body to bring out the best singing voice possible, whether you want to sing classical music, musical theater, country, gospel, pop or rock. The vocal technique and musical training you will receive will enable you to sing any style of music with more efficiency and ease. Voice lessons build a strong and healthy voice as you create confidence in performing. I help students to improve their musicianship and successfully find the true beauty and power of their natural singing voice!

Guitar Lessons:
Students will play all kinds of music, from classical to country and rock. Beginners will develop the basics: reading music, tablature, tuning, chords, and scales. Experienced players will improve technique, chord and scale theory, ear training and performance.

Piano Lessons
Ms. Cindy uses the "Mayron Cole" piano method, which encourages sight reading instead of just memorization. Being musically literate enables the student to work through new music by themselves. Students who progress through each level will emerge as independent literate musicians, who can read, write and create music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach online with an upright piano, an acoustic and electric guitar.
