I am going to be a senior at Calvin College and I am studying Psychology and Music. From first hand experience 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, as 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, blues, and more! Along with music I have also studied many other subjects at Calvin, such as writing, philosophy, and french; all of which I am very capable of tutoring in. There is also no commitment needed prior to the first tutoring session or lesson. Thanks 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 a bit of jazz music theory, improvise, and blend well with other musicians. Above all I have fun and trust my intuition!
I need to know how to improvise within the structure of the song. I have to be able to have a stage presence that engages with the audience. I am also able to sing many different styles used in jazz such as: Bossa Nova, Ballad, Rubato, Swing, Funk, and more.
