My background also includes over 30 years of music teaching experience in both public and private schools. My voice preparation includes studying with Dr. L. Scott Martin, who holds a P.H.D. from the Juilliard School of Music. To find out more details, view my website at Lilyvalleymusic.com
I love working and watching students accomplish musical goals beyond even their own expectations!
Very knowledgeable and patient
I interview the student regarding his/her experience, interests, and musical goals. Also, I encourage any questions they would like to ask me. I suggest sharing some music with me so I can begin to get an idea of the student's skill level.
All these beginning steps are important, but I also love to just share conversation and learn what is unique about each person.
If the person is a singer I also like to warm up the voice and listen for range, pitch, vocal quality, and basic understanding of concepts.
My great joy is being a part of each person's musical growth.
