Bassett Music Studio
I have over 20 years of experience working with private students from age 5 through college. My students who are motivated do extremely well and are regularly successful in competitions, performances, and have been awarded college scholarships and been accepted into graduate programs. My expertise is quickly evaluating problems that are keeping students from developing and showing them how to overcome the challenges they face.
I enjoy watching students discover how much they can do once they harness the techniques that empower them to sing and play at the highest level.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Each student is different and will be facing different challenges. My goal is always to identify what students need to help them overcome their specific challenges. Generally I will listen to a student sing or play, and then help them identify any issues and show them techniques that will help them improve.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Ph.D. in music education. I have taught college level voice and strings for 16 years, and high school level voice and strings for 21 years. I am a member of the national association of teachers of singing and I am certified in Suzuki string method 1. My students have been successful in Florida All-State chorus and orchestra, competed successfully in the Tampa Bay NATS vocal competitions, have been awarded college scholarships and performed professionally.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
What types of students have you worked with?
Classical voice, vocal theatre, popular voice, violin, viola, cello, guitar, and piano.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Find someone who is competent and a good fit for you. It is just as important to be a good student. My students who practice regularly are very happy with their achievements.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
communicate openly about what you want. Your perspective of your needs usually change once you begin working, so it's more important to identify your needs over time than at the beginning.
