I love helping students achieve their goals and grow as musicians by providing musical training. I offer both voice and piano lessons to students of all ages, and incorporate music theory and ear training (vital skills for musicians) into all my lessons.
I've been teaching for a little over a year and have had the opportunity to gain experience by training over 50 students during this time.
Phenomenal experience. 10 out of 10. All the boxes checked for what I look for in a voice and piano lesson experience.
Olivia was very helpful in my first couple lessons. Her attention to detail and ability to connect with me as a student to find what works best for my voice and musical abilities was impressive. I will definitely continue my lessons with Olivia.
Olivia is so fun to learn from. It’s easy to see the extent of her knowledge and her passion for music during her lessons. Reading music is something that’s always baffled me but now I can read it comfortably. Thank you so much, can’t wait for our next lesson!
Olivia is very patient and a great teacher!
I like to get to know the student a bit first, and allow them to get to know me as well so that they are comfortable in their lessons. Then I begin by getting an evaluation of the student's past musical experience, their skill level, and what they are looking to gain from their lessons (whether it is preparing for an audition, beginning to learn the instrument for the first time, etc). After this I will form a personalized lesson plan or recommend books for use in the lessons and go from there. Each student is different so my teaching style varies by lesson!
I will be graduating in May 2020 from Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky with a degree in Worship and Music Studies.
I have over one year experience as a private instructor and now have nearly 50 students currently enrolled.
Currently offering only online lessons via Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime.
Starting at $30 per half hour lesson, or $100 per month.
Discounts offered for multi-month committment.
Sibling discounts also offered ($10 off per student per month).
I began teaching lessons through Flying Hands School of Music in Louisville.
I have worked with all children as young as three years old, as well as retirement age adults and everything in between! I have worked with beginners, and those with up to 5 years experience.
I always enjoy seeing my students perform in recitals or at their school musicals. I enjoyed seeing one of my high school students perform in Little Shop of Horrors recently and have been helping one of my middle school students prepare for her roles in both Peter Pan Jr. and Aladdin Jr.
Improving your skills as a musicians is so much more than a hobby or a path to musical success. It is also about self discipline and finding joy in the process of learning. It is certainly a worthwhile investment in self-growth!
