About this pro

Learning a new instrument can be frustrating, especially when you feel you aren't achieving your goals. Fortunately, there is more than one way to learn music! I offer personalized lessons in voice and piano, completely catered to the student's goals. Make learning music fun for you! 

Here’s a little more background on me! I am a third year Music major at Spelman College, where I have trained in voice, piano, and composition. I currently hold the title of Student Conductor with the Spelman College Glee Club. In this position, I work everyday to help students reach their potential as musicians. I am an All-State vocalist, and have studied music theory and vocal pedagogy extensively. I have also worked as a church pianist, and have accompanied numerous pop soloists both at Spelman and during my high school career. I have played music of every genre, and I am so excited to pass on what I know!

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

My first step in working with a new student is to ask them about their goals and how they like to learn. Of course, you would teach a visual learner differently than an auditory learner! We start off by learning the basics of reading music through exercises and short songs, then progress into more advanced techniques.

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

I currently attend Spelman College, where I am a Vocal Performance Major and Piano Performance Minor. During my time at Spelman, I have competed in many collegiate vocal masterclasses and competitions. In addition, I am the accompanist for Sister's Chapel at Spelman College, and serve as a private accompanist for some student performances. I am a Classically trained singer and pianist, but have studied and performed in many genres, including jazz, R&B, gospel, and popular music.
