- Teaching since:
I am a professional opera singer who grew up singing bluegrass. I graduated from Peabody Conservatory of Music with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice.
I've been singing professionally for 15 years in a variety of settings: I grew up in a family bluegrass band, sang musical theater through high school and college, sing in a female folk ukulele duo, and have a thriving career as a classical soprano in Chicago.
I love teaching students of all skill levels. For two years I was the head of the voice department for a dance academy. While there I maintained 15 students of varying age and skill level, and created a curriculum for their dance and voice integrated musical theater program. I also created a music education program for inner city schools in Milwaukee that had their arts funding taken away.
If you choose me as your teacher, I'll be your biggest cheerleader. I'm patient, kind, and truly want those I work with to sing beautifully and healthily. Let's make some beautiful music together!
Developing accessible music curriculum for school-age children, tracking individual progress with individual students, communicating with classroom teachers on activities to prepare class for the next lesson.
Maintain a studio of 15 students, keeping notes on their progress, selecting repertoire appropriate to each student's skill level and range, preparing them for studio recitals, auditions and competitions
Maureen was a student of mine for 6 years, a student of my own graduate school voice teacher's for 4 years, and a student of my current voice teacher for the last few years. Since she was 13 years old, she has understood vocal technique in a way that some singers two or three times her age would be fortunate to grasp. She often helped other singers find their way through vocal issues, even as a teenager. I have always felt that she was meant to teach voice and anyone lucky enough to work with her will have a great experience and will learn a great deal! (Also, she's a great person.)+ Read More
