About this pro

I am a voice and piano instructor with almost two decades of experience in public schools and private music studios, and I have a degree in choral music education from the University of Illinois.  I can't wait to meet you (or your child), to see if we'd be a good fit!  Please feel free to visit my website at lombardmusiclessons.com for more information on tuition rates, my teaching style, and more.

While I of course enjoy simply sharing my love of music with students of all ages, one of my very favorite things about being a private music teacher is having the opportunity to teach a child for many years.  As a public school teacher, there was only a finite time for which I could teach a particular child, but as a private teacher, I'm sometimes able to have many years in which I can watch a young child grow into a competent young adult.  Being able to be a part of a student's (and the student's family's) life for years feels like a real privilege.

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

Normally I like to schedule a single trial lesson with a new student to see if we're going to be a good fit.  With students who have previously studied with another teacher, I will ask them to bring any sheet music for pieces they worked on with their last teacher, so I can get an idea of where they're at and assess the best direction in which to go with them. For students new to private vocal or piano study, I simply ask them to show up with a smile to their first lesson, and I will do my best to put them at ease!

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

I hold a Bachelor of Music Education (BME) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  I taught public school choir from 2000 to 2005, and have been a private lesson teacher ever since.  Please visit my website at lombardmusiclessons.com for more information!

Tuition is paid at the first lesson of the month, and is $85 per month for piano and $90 per month for voice for 30 minute once-weekly lessons.

From ages 4 through adult, beginner to intermediate level piano students and beginner to pre-professional voice students.
