About this pro

I am a professional musician, so my instruction not only involves classroom experience but real life experience. I'm thrilled to share my knowledge with others and put my whole heart into teaching.

I love the collaborative aspect of teaching! Helping students acheive a goal or find just the right way to approach a difficult passage of music is a really wonderful thing.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I always offer my new students a free 30 minutes voice consultation. We discuss the student's goals and the reasons they want to try voice lessons. Then I come up with a plan and explain more about my teaching style and how I can help them acheive these goals. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance and a Bachelor's degree in Music Business. I am also currently studying and performing classical music in the Chicago area. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

A 30 minute lesson with me costs $25. A 60 minute lesson is $40. I do offer a significant discount when students choose to pay monthly. Please contact me to inquire further!


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching voice lessons while I was working towards my undergraduate degrees. I taught in a music store initially and then opened my own studio to better accomodate my students' schedules. I found a love for teaching early on and it became more than just a 'side hustle' for me. I delight in finding each student's favorite aspect of music and helping them nurture that passion into a true and life-long talent. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught students from age 5 to 55 from all walks of life and talent levels. I specialize in high school students working towards school and community auditions, and I prefer to teach classical style music. However, I am able to teach any style of singing and I find that classical technique translates seamlessly to any performance style. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Students should look for three things when interviewing teachers: 

1) Is this teacher qualified based on education or years of experience? Unfortunately, many young students start off with a teacher who puts quantity of music before technique, the end result being a student who knows a lot of Disney songs, but can't breath properly or match pitch well enough to pass an audition. 

2) Does this teacher have a warm, welcoming demeanor? Voice lessons tend to be very personal. When a student is frustrated, he or she needs a teacher who will listen and understand rather than try to push forward. 

3) Is this teacher willing to work with my goals? Although I am a classical singer, I am always happy to work on other styles of music with my students. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are my goals?

How can I measure my accomplishments once I start working with a teacher?

What kind of teacher am I looking for (in terms of style, personality, training, etc)? 

How much am I willing to spend?
