About Michelle J.

I took private music lessons (piano and voice) until I graduated from high school, and gained experience as a performer and accompanist. I obtained a regular role playing at our church when I was in the 7th grade, and became a regular accompanist for the school choir and various community activities. I was the pianist/music director in each high school drama production and gained experience working with an orchestra and singing in and directing the choir.

I continued as an accompanist and vocalist in college. Since college, I have provided music for weddings and events.

I love to share music with others. Music is happiness! It brings people together and aids development for children. It's truly enjoyable for me to pass along the love of music to my students.

Through my family and teaching experience, I've developed a passion for students with special needs such as ADHD and autism. I've gained a love, appreciation and understanding for students who are "differently gifted" in these ways, and love to help motivate them to learn in THEIR way!

Michelle is a great teacher. She helps students with rhythm counting and is very patient. She is someone that you will feel very comfortable around and trustworthy toward.

My 9 year old daughter has singing since before she could talk. She's had piano and voice lessons before with other teachers. Each time she became apathetic about the lessons and about practicing, but she is excited about voice lessons with Michelle each week and practices her singing, breathing exercises, and even the piano to accompany the songs without being asked. She even made Michelle an oragami piano as a gift.

Michelle clearly knows voice anatomy, theory, etc. She also knows how to teach children in a way that is engaging and fun, but still professional and serious. She is encouraging, respectful, and...well, she'll the best voice instructor we've ever met.

It's a pleasure to work with Michelle. My child looks forward to learning from her every week. Thanks to Michelle's approach to teaching him; it has certainly raised his curiosity and above all, interest to learn. She is patient, especially with kids and assigns the right amount of practice work, such that you are not only learning but also enjoying the class. Michelle works on your assets and weak areas; setting high but achievable goals.
