Levels Taught:
Beginner
I absolutely love being a piano and voice teacher! I have been a classically trained pianist for 17 years and a classically trained vocalist for 6 years. I have been teaching students of all ages for many of these years with great success and fantastic results! Currently, I am a Music Education major studying at UCLA with an emphasis on vocal and piano performance. I create a vibrant musical environment for my students, incorporating performance practice, music theory, technique, music history, effective exercises, personalized repertoire options, and fantastic semesterly recitals at the local Senior Center! I ensure that whomever I am teaching looks forward to lessons, and I try to make it a fun learning environment so that even the stubbornest of students can enjoy lessons! My students have the benefit of an experienced, classically trained teacher, who frequently performs all over the world and nurtures a truly deep love for music. I aim for my students to not just be trained properly, but for them to choose the music genres, repertoire, and style they wish to perform. Whether it's jazz, pop, musical theatre, classical, or anything else their heart desires–I ensure a fun, productive learning environment for my students!

I have been a classically trained pianist for 17 years and a classically trained vocalist for 6 years! I am currently studying at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music as a music education major with an emphasis on classical piano and classical voice! I have been teaching both piano and voice lessons since 2011, and many of my students have been with me since the beginning. I have seen all students of my studio grow and flourish into fantastic musicians. I have watched my students perform the works of Beethoven, Mozart, Debussy, the modern music of Harry Potter, Adele, Disney, and so much more! I am incredibly flexible, patient, and encouraging with my students, and I do my best to ensure a musical environment for them to flourish in! Many of the parents of the students I teach consistently praise my likeability, relatability, and ability to create a very comfortable learning environment for my students. I always try to not just nurture great relationships with my students, but with the parents as well! I am an actively working musician, performing frequently both nationally and internationally! My students have a teacher that is truly immersed in the musical environment and who is up-to-date with the latest in music repertoire, music education, and music performance; allowing them to have a very vibrant and ever-growing music-learning experience! I don't just love my job, but I love my students. Having the job that I do has allowed me to pursue my dream in the performing arts in such a fulfilling way. I assure you that as a teacher for you or your child, you will find me a great fit into their musical lives!
