I have been singing and playing piano all of my life. I took my first music lesson I was just three years old I never looked back! After high school I earned my Bachelor of Music Performance and my Master of Music. I attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. It was in Louisiana where I began my teaching career, about fifteen years ago.
After returning to Michigan, I began teaching K-12 music in both public and private school settings. I currently maintain a private studio in addition to teaching voice part-time at two of local colleges.
*** Lesson Details ***
I emphasize a standard classical approach. I thrive on good, solid technique. This will enable students to master any type of music they wish to study.
Students begin with basic music theory. This is essential for anyone taking a music lesson. Piano students are ages 5 and up.
Once a student has a good foundation, the sky is the limit. These principles can be applied to any genre of music; classical, sacred, pop, rock, the choice is yours! Every student is different and has different goals. We will work together to make sure that you can achieve them and excel!
