About this pro

I enjoy giving lessons online due to the convenience of my students. I draw on many years of training, including a bachelors degree in Music from Ithaca College (1996). I have sang professionally as a soloist in Catholic Churches for many years and have taught piano and voice lessons since 2007. I love helping students of all ages achieve their goals.

Whether someone is just pursuing a hobby with their instrument, on track to pursue a music program in college, or wanting to perform at the local level I have been able to assist students in reaching these goals over the years.

    Barbara is a very good teacher. She's friendly, patient, understanding and punctual. I am enjoying taking piano lessons with her.

    My singing and piano capabilities have increased tremendously through working with Ms. Horgan! She is very nice, enthusiastic about music, and teaches very helpful techniques in an easy to understand manner so that improvement comes easily!

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

What is it you want to do with your music studies? If you are just experimenting with your instrument, what really gets you excited about it, or is it that you most enjoy?
