When I give a lesson I start with fun warm up exercises. Then I work on repertoire that I let the student pick or if they feel uncomfortable with that I will select pieces catered to them. If a student is interested I can delve into things like theory and sight singing. The whole name of the game is to explore the beauty and love of music ❀️

About Erika S.

I’m an experienced teacher with a wealth of experience both performing and teaching but my best quality is connecting with people and really making the lessons an experience rather than a chore. Music should be fun! It’s changed my life and that’s what I’d love to share with everyone 😊

I have taken lessons from her on and off for about 5 years. She is amazing and really knows how to connect with you to find your interests and she listens. She doesn’t force you to choose a genre and she offers things like theory and also has a lot of fun tips, tricks and warm ups. I started lessons with her during my junior year of highschool and have continued since graduating. I’m now recording an EP and will be putting my music out on Spotify ❀️ If you want to learn and have fun doing it, she’s amazing.

Leigh is a highly professional and personable teacher. She keeps the lesson engaging and fun while making sure you understand the fundamentals. Can not recommend her enough- and good for literally any age! You will not find a better teacher.
