My name is Holly, I'm 27, and I sing, write music and play piano. I have been on stage performing and studying music for 15 years, and have been teaching privately for about 7 years. In addition to studying with two classical voice teachers, I've studied with two jazz voice teachers, and spent my senior year at the Long Island High School for the Arts for musical theatre. My undergraduate degree in Music Composition was completed at SUNY New Paltz, and my graduate work is currently at LIU Post. I perform a lot, and I've written countless songs and three full-length musicals. This means I can teach pretty much any style you might have an interest in! Opera, folk, jazz, pop, blues, country, musical theatre: whether you want to write it, sing it, or both, I can help! I can teach basic piano lessons as well, and have experience teaching children as young as 5 up to adults in their 50's. To hear me, go to: www.reverbnation.com/hollysterling
I gave out snacks, helped people walk from point A to point B, ran activities like art projects, but mostly sang and danced with the seniors, for 2-3 hours a day. I now have mega endurance and know over a hundred songs by heart.
Hypnosis training involves some psychology, most of which revolves around tricking people into believing that they CAN do something they were convinced they couldn't do. Much of it is applicable in helping students! (I do NOT, however, hypnotize my students! Just might use some of the great ways my teacher taught me to encourage people.)
