Hi, I'm Hilary. I am a classically trained opera/classical singer who studied at Trinity College of Music in London. I have a Bachelors in Music Performance and a certification in vocal teaching from the LTCL (Trinity Guildhall Board of Music) I have experience both singing and teaching many types and styles of music. I have been performing internationally for the last 7 years and enjoy diving in wherever I can. I have experience not only as a performer/teacher but also in directing, producing, coaching, and designing shows/concerts.
*** Lesson Details ***
I have 15+ years of teaching experience and look forward to adding the many years to come. As a teacher I strive to keep my students motivated and working hard while having lots of fun in the process. I have experience working with many different learning styles and also have experience working with special needs youth and adults.
Many of my students have said that I am enthusiastic, fun, motivating, patient, and understanding. I encourage my students to work hard through positive reinforcement and constructive criticism. I believe very strongly that a positive learning environment is the key to success.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a cd/mp3 player, a bluetooth speaker, recording devices, and an electric piano.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music and backing tracks if a piano is not available. I would prefer the student have both a piano and a cd/mp3 player but could work just with a cd/mp3 player if necessary. I also request the student to have a note book to take lesson notes in.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing and opera vocals but have taught musical theater, jazz, rock, metal, punk, etc
Hilary is really great! She has a way of connecting with people easily. She is able to encourage my daughter and help her learn at the same time. We feel very lucky to have been paired with Hilary!
Hillary is a great teacher. She is easy to get along with and makes the lessons enjoyable. I'm learning a lot from her.
