Voice students can expect to learn and understand sight reading, ear training, breath management, tone production, vibrato, phrasing, dynamics, and developing a wider vocal range.  I assist students in building a diverse historical repertoire for both classical and contemporary styles with training in languages such as Latin, Italian, German, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.  For advanced students, this includes specific training in diction with use of the International Phonetic Alphabet.  Instruction for jazz or contemporary students includes microphone technique, improvisation, stylistic interpretation, applications of music theory in singing and stage performance.  My priority in voice instruction is to serve the educational needs of the student through a positive and encouraging student teacher relationship while ensuring vocal health through understanding the physiology of the voice and proper sound production.

I teach beginning and intermediate piano in both the classical and jazz styles.  Weekly lessons include training in music theory, sight reading, ear training, and piano technique.  Students learn major and minor scales in all twelve keys and develop an understanding of key signatures, time signatures, musical articulations, dynamics, and expressive notations.  Students also learn how to read chords.  Lessons materials generally include lesson books, technical study books, and repertoire selections from the instructor.  Students are also encouraged to choose their own music!
