Teaching since:

Hi everyone!! My name is Kristen and I am voice and piano teacher located in the Cincinnati area.
A little about my teaching style:
In my lessons you will learn not only vocal and piano technique but how to read music, sight reading, and for my more advanced students we may incorporate music theory in as well.
The genre music that we work on in our lessons will be up to the student. The student and myself will work together to find the best fit for them. I currently teach either online or at the student's home. I am working on getting a space for students to come to me and I will post that when that comes available.

A little about myself and education background:
I have recently graduated from Miami University with my Masters of Music in vocal performance. During my time there I did teach voice lessons through the university as part of my graduate assistantship as well as private voice and piano lessons on my own. My background has mostly been in classical music but I has experience teaching and singing other genres such as pop, jazz, and musical theater. I am an active musican in the Cincinnati area and I have performed regularly with several local opera companies around Cincinnati and Columbus.

For Lessons at my studio: I request that I meet my students for our first lesson at Sam Ash Music Store in Springdale for safety reasons since we do not know each other. After the first lesson you will be coming to my home in Gaslight District of Clifton.

If you have any questions feel free to ask. I look forward to hearing from you.

I had private voice lessons with Kristen. I would say that the lessons I received were some of the most comprehensive lessons I have ever had the pleasure of partaking in. To say that Kristen exemplifies the ideal instructor would be an understatement! Very flexible hours. She was able to work around my very busy schedule so I could achieve my ongoing music goals.

Kristen has a beautiful voice, and she will help you find your innate musicianship and vocal prowess! She is a kind person and a talented performer, and I highly recommend her!
