Overview

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.

· Singing · In home 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.
