Music Performance

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I'm a professional musician, and have experience teaching music theory and musicianship (beginner-advanced) and music history, as well as beginning piano, beginning-intermediate flute, and all levels of conducting! My favorite thing about teaching is helping students to discover new things, and instilling a curiosity and love of music in the people I meet. I'll help you make a plan, and together we can work to make your musical goals happen!

Teaching since:

Hi! My name is Holly, and I love music.

I'm a classically trained conductor, and work with several choirs in the Boston area. I went to school at the New England Conservatory, where I got masters degrees in Choral Conducting and Music History. Mostly, my work focuses on Renaissance and modern classical vocal music. Last year, I conducted seven full programs worth of music at several venues throughout the greater Boston area, and sang in several more.

I want to help you deepen your love for music, and develop your musical chops! Working together, we'll talk about what your goals are, and create a regular lesson schedule and plan to help you reach those goals!

I have experience teaching a lot of specific fields within music, so send me a message if you're looking to learn:

-conducting (beginner-advanced)
-music theory and musicianship (beginner-advanced)
-music history (beginner-advanced)
-flute (beginner-intermediate)
-piano (beginner)
-keyboard harmony (beginner)

Hope to hear from you!
