I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Music Education (vocal emphasis) and a trumpet performance minor. I then completed my Masters in Vocal Pedagogy in December of 2015. Right now I am teaching K-8 General music and 5-8th grade band and Chorus. I have been a private studio instructor for the past 6 years.
If you are pursuing voice I can teach you Classical operatic singing, Broadway style, or Art Songs (Lieder in French, German and Italian.)
If you are pursuing trumpet I can enhance your skills whether you are just beginning or are already an intermediate player.
*** Lesson Details ***
I prefer to work with children and female students! (No adult males)
I am a teacher that helps you reach whatever goals you set for yourself. You tell me what you want to accomplish and I will work together with you to make it happen. I will create a curriculum according your personal needs and skill level.
If you are taking lessons with me you will learn lots of music theory and music history. I want you to understand the style and reasoning behind each piece of music you play.
