Lesson Details

Music Performance

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hi everyone! In my studio, I love to teach private piano or voice lessons and I welcome students of all ages. My schedule is pretty flexible and in addition to teaching, I perform opera and classical music professionally. I have over 4 years of teaching experience and I hold my Masters of Music degree in Voice Performance. Although I have the tools to teach many elements of music, I love to cater my lessons to the needs and wants of my students. Lessons are fun and laid back but you will definitely walk away having learned something new. I'd love to chat, so if you have any questions or concerns feel free to ask me. I look forward to hearing from you!

Teaching since:
August 2014

My expectations during lessons are not very strict and instead is based on a willingness to learn and enjoyment of singing or playing. I hope that my students have ideas of what they would like to sing/play, but I am also able to make recommendations if needed. I also ask that students be respectful of being on time to lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical piano and classical voice. I teach the Italian bel canto style method and I believe that technique allows people to sing many different genres of music. I am currently pursuing an opera career but I don't want people to think its mandatory to sing classical or opera music. Any and all are welcome. :)
