**Now accepting piano and voice students for August 2017!**

I love music and teaching so much that when I am in the studio, I never feel like I am at “work”. I am a life long stage performer and recently earned my Masters of Music - Voice Performance from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
As a private voice and piano teacher and a Kindermusik instructor, I have benefitted greatly from teaching students diverse in age, background, and experience level. I love the excitement of early note and rhythm discovery that comes with teaching young children, and it has been an absolute joy to watch my adult students grow more confident in their ability to express themselves through song. Your lessons are about you and I tailor my approach to meet your specific goals and experience level.

Zoe was a wonderful teacher to my children who took voice and piano, respectively. We will definitely miss working with her, but are excited as she begins a new journey to Los Angeles to develop her music studio. One of the attributes that I appreciated about Zoe's teaching style was her patience and the way she engaged with my children. My youngest child's attention span could be a challenge during lessons. Zoe was professional and patient when she re-directed her. Zoe was also good in complimenting the progress my children made, as well as, giving constructive criticism in a respectful manner and tone that was well received by my children. She always began lessons by checking in with my children and taking an interest in them outside the music lesson forum. She always answered my questions with honesty and integrity. We will also miss her smile and her singing voice, as she was a joy to listen to as she demonstrated techniques during lessons! She is a great teacher and you will be pleased with her work.

Working with Zoë has been extremely fulfilling and, if you are an aspiring artist or an experienced singer, she is the instructor for you. She helps you build a strong foundation, which allows for you to find your very own voice.

An absolute must try, as I believe that Zoë can help anyone to sing!

Zoe was awesome with our 9 year old daughter! She displays great patience with our daughter, and was extremely motivating for her. Zoe has a strong talent of being able to connect emotionally! She found out what our daughter enjoyed to sing, and then challenged her with some new music as well. We highly recommend Zoe for both her musical talent, but also for her interpersonal skills!
