*** Lesson Details ***
As a classically trained singer I will instruct you in all aspects of singing technique, from breath control and support to improving your tone, range, flexibility and resonance. I have recently completed training in Somatic Voicework, The LoVetri Method, which has enriched my understanding of the mechanics and health of the voice, as well as applications of technique to CCM or contemporary musical styles of singing.
My familiarity with a variety of musical styles from pop/rock, R&B, and country, to musical theater, lounge and jazz makes me an ideal teacher for those interested in contemporary styles.
I have spent many years developing my own style of singing and instruction. I draw on my experiences and training not only in music, but theater and movement, (Linklater, Alexander Technique, Grotowski) to create a well rounded approach to singing and performing. As an instructor, I am most interested in helping students find their true voice and artistic style. I teach students to find expression through and with a foundation of technique, rather then in spite of it. I also am very interested in helping students deal with the mental/emotional aspects of performance, an all important area so frequently ignored by music teachers. My style is nurturing, yet disciplined, and sprinkled liberally with good-natured humor."
*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio space is fully equipped with a piano, P.A. system with microphones, CD, MP3 player for tracks, and ability to record lessons if the student desires.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Please have a piano (in tune!) or keyboard for use in your in home lessons.
*** Specialties ***
I am classically trained, but I am very adept at teaching music in a wide variety of styles, including most contemporary styles of music including pop/rock, roots, swing, jazz and blues, country, r&b, and of course musical theater and cabaret. My band performs an eclectic mix of originals and covers in the roots rock genre, and I write music as well. I have many years of experience in the theater as an actress, and I coach acting technique and performance. I coach singer/songwriters, and all types of singers, of all ages. I have a workshop that specializes in helping people learn to perform better in front of an audience, and I host the Singer's Salon in Chicago, which is a supportive opportunity to perform regularly! I also coach bands, to improve their vocals, harmonies, etc.

I am a singer... no wait... an "independent musician" as my high school choir teacher calls it. Graduated with a Music Education degree. Currently I am a Pre-K teacher at a local childcare center, and also sing in the choir at my church. My faith is important, and the gift of music is a gift from the Lord in a way.
The style that I'm more preference to is classical, well since I've been classically trained, and also Broadway musicals. But I believe that having great technique is essential to succeed.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their technique and music making abilities. Every student requires different needs, and it is my job to develop a custom tailored approach to ensure the needs are met; My teaching methods are derived from my own experience as a performer, and from my t
I teach music students of all different ages and experience levels. My goal for new or beginning students is to apply solid foundational techniques and foster a disciplined daily practice routine to ensure their progress on the horn accelerates. In order to become a great horn player for many years and maintain a beautiful sound, it is essential to have a strong solid foundation and daily routine. Together, we will find a suitable warm up method, as well as daily exercises and etudes in order to develop a strong embouchure, unlock their own individual sound, and play as relaxed as possible.
A huge part of my teaching is dedicated to helping my students sound develop and to "sing" on the horn. This singing approach enables students perform with freedom, confidence, and the utmost expression, while also enhancing their own unique and beautiful special sounds. For the intermediate level or already experienced students, I work with them on more advanced etudes and technical exercises, building and refinement of the solo repertoire, as well as school/orchestra audition preparation, and any other specific needs or goals the student is interested in or requests.
While my personal passion and musical endeavor is the French Horn, I am open to assisting other musicians and instrumentalists interested in developing their musical skills.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Prior to my Navy appointment, I taught tuba and ran the tuba-euphonium ensemble at Henderson State University. While there, I taught weekly tuba lessons with each music major and music minor. These students performed in several solo recitals and master classes. I also ran rehearsals and instructed the tuba-euphonium ensemble. This ensemble gave multiple performances throughout the semester.
Before teaching college, I attended the University of Memphis where I received my Master of Music degree. I studied intently and really honed my tuba playing and teaching chops. I had the opportunity to be surrounded by amazing tuba players and attended several workshops
Before my time in Memphis, I received two degrees from the University of Central Arkansas. I received a Bachelor of Music and a Performer's Certificate. While at UCA, I had many of the same experiences listed above with my time in Memphis. I taught undergraduate tuba lessons, ran the tuba-euphonium ensemble, and ran a daily warmup class.
In terms of my professional playing experience goes, I've performed in numerous ensembles and played all types of music. I've been featured in a motion picture soundtrack (A Dream Retrieval Ritual). I played in a professional jazz band during a big-time jazz festival (performed all of Miles Davis' "Birth of the Cool album). Performed with several tuba-euphonium professionals, including a trio with Tim Buzbee and Christian Carichner. I've played in symphony orchestras as well. I was principal tuba of the Conway Symphony Orchestra, Conway Chamber Orchestra, and the University of Memphis Symphony Orchestra. I've played in numerous brass quintets, ranging from student led to professional for the past 13 years. I've played in several New Orleans Dixieland style jazz bands and know how to read a lead sheet and walk a bass line (as skill far too few tuba players have).
