Overview

Hi, there! My name is Elliot and I'm very excited to start working with you! I've been teaching lessons since 2011 and love watching students grow and succeed during our time together (and beyond). I have Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Voice from Western Michigan University and a Master's degree in Jazz Vocal Performance from the University of Miami. I also have significant experience in the musical theater world, having music directed several shows for community programs and high schools.

My approach to teaching is to bring out self-expression, joy, and artistry in each of my students. My goal is for you to reach your highest potential! Have an upcoming audition or performance? We can work hard to make sure it's a massive success! Love singing and want to gain experience and expertise? You're in the right place! Whatever your goal, I will work hard with you to make it a fun and enjoyable learning experience.
