I teach a variety of styles and adapt to students of all skill levels and abilities. As a professional musician with education experience in the classroom and with private students, I am well suited to teaching a variety of students in both piano and voice. For piano students, instead of beginning with teaching students how to read music, I instruct them in creating harmonies and technique. As these are mastered, we begin to start music literacy and combine the two and improve sight reading. I teach various styles including classical and jazz. For voice students I like to have students sing something they know well to get an idea of skill and talent, and then we start working on placement, articulation, breath, phrasing, and diction while improving sight reading ability. It is not uncommon for students to improve breath support and increase range within the first month and a half of lessons, and I teach a variety of singing styles including classical and musical theatre with sound pedagogical techniques. I have taught privately for the past three years in the Oklahoma City metro area to dozens of satisfied students.
I most enjoy introducing music to students who think they are not talented enough to be a musician. Through setting reasonable, measurable goals and working toward them with diligence, anyone can become a musician. The most rewarding facet of my work exhibits itself when a student masters performing a piece of music that he or she previously thought they could not attain.

I am pursuing a degree in music at the University of Central Oklahoma. I have played piano for ten years and performed in medium and small choral ensembles across the state, regionally, and internationally. I have also performed in community theatre productions and university opera productions.
My students range in age from 8 years to adults of all skill levels.
