Our lessons will be relaxed and fun. I take pride in tailoring my curriculum to the needs and goals of each individual student- This helps me make sure that you are learning at a pace that feels comfortable for you, yet challenging.
We will work together to develop both your musicianship and creativity. I am a firm believer in music being a healing and mind-opening practice. One of my primary goals while teaching is to give my students an outlet to express themselves in a healthy and meaningful way. Let's get started!
Topics we can focus on together:
- Improvisation (rock solos!)
- Strumming/finger-picking patterns
- How to sing and play at the same time
- Songwriting/Recording techniques
- Lyric Writing
- Stage Presence
- Exploring different musical genres
- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
My classical training began at age 10, when I started to play the viola. From there, I was able to translate my musical skills to violin, guitar, piano, voice, composition, and songwriting.
Originally a biology major at SUNY Purchase College, I quickly became restless knowing that I was unable to focus on music enough. So, I switched it up, followed my passion, and began studying music theory and production. Since then, my life has been focused on teaching, performing, writing, and recording music- and I wouldn't have it any other way!
It's been quite a journey, and I can't wait to share all that I've learned along the way with you.
Whether you are just starting out, or are looking to further the knowledge you already have, I will meet you at where you are, and help you to achieve your personal goals.
Together we can work on technique, theory, improvisation, ear-training, songwriting, and more!
Great teacher of the violin! Always patient and supportive. Not going to make you feel bad if you mess up, but still encourages to push yourself further.
I am a beginner and I was very nervous about taking guitar lessons at first. However, Miss Dayna made it so easy for me to learn by using relatable words to explain the techniques and concepts involved with playing guitar. Great teacher!
