Classical Music Lessons

Voice Lessons

First I'll spend some time getting to know your voice and creating exercises and warmups just for you! I'll guide you through them as we address problem areas and concerns, expand your range, and develop beautiful, versatile tone!

Then we'll work on actually singing songs - whether they are by other artists or your own. Using my professional training and my experience as an internationally touring vocalist I've solved so many vocal problems over the years, for myself and for my students. I promise results!

There are other tools we'll make use of in your lessons. Whether it's help with songwriting, recording, or stage performance skills, I have the know-how to help you achieve greatness!

Piano Lessons

First we'll evaluate your piano skills and discuss your goals and musical dreams. Then we'll choose a focus (classical, pop, jazz, singer/songwriter.) For younger and beginner students I'll recommend a book that you'll bring with you to every lesson. We'll start with learning to read notes and rhythms, and quickly begin playing pieces! My experience as a touring musician, classically-trained background, and years of experience teaching private lessons have made me really, really good at making music really, really easy for my students!

Ear training Lessons

I've studied ear training since high school, and got really, really good at it in college (I studied Jazz Performance at the University of North Texas.) I use my ear training skills every day as a professional musician and I have lots of tips and tricks for being able to truly understand music by listening. I've taught hundreds of students my ways...I even taught a class for young teens!

Songwriting Lessons

I'm a professional songwriter so my job is to write songs for myself, for other artists, and for film and tv! I absolutely love helping my students craft a beautiful song and realize their creative vision. Write the songs you've always wanted to write with my guidance and experience!

First the basics: How to read notes and rhythms!

Once you've mastered that we'll learn how to build and recognize different types of chords, analyze music and develop skills like transposition, transcription, and ear training.

Overview

After graduating from one of the world’s foremost Jazz Studies programs at the University of North Texas, I spent years developing and honing my craft as a professional performer, session musician, and composer in the styles of pop, jazz, classical, rock, soul, R&B, and indie/electronic music. While working tirelessly to advance my career as a recording artist I also worked with hundreds of students and became a mentor and role model to many, instilling confidence and fostering creativity!

My comprehensive understanding of vocal technique is rooted in formal training but bolstered by the experience of thousands of gigs, most recently a demanding nine-month international tour as the synth/keys player and vocalist for M83. I have natural instincts for nurturing younger minds and I'm passionate about communicating complex ideas to learners in a fun way!
