Hello! I am currently a senior at Calvin College in Grand Rapids Majoring in Psychology and Music. Through experience with teachers and coaches throughout the years. I know that a good teacher can make all the difference! That's why I desire to cater every lesson or tutoring session to the student. I desire to make every session an enjoyable, fun, and informative experience! I am a performer and songwriter, and my main instruments are piano, voice, and alto saxophone. I have experience in styles such as: classical, opera, jazz, pop, musical theater, folk, and blues. Along with music and psychology, I have also studied writing at Calvin. There is no commitment needed prior to the first tutoring session or lesson. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Being a part of the Calvin College Jazz Band I need to be able to sight read well, understand jazz music theory, improvise, and work well with other musicians. Above all I have fun and trust my intuition!
I was on Calvin College Women's Golf team for four years in a row.
