About this pro

For sixteen years I've been inspired by my young music students and their passion for music. I offer music lessons to kids where each time they play, they are winners! I want young people to feel seen and heard. In my lessons, each person is special and important. We have fun learning and just being ourselves. 

Watching the kids progress after going through a stretch where things are challenging is the most rewarding part of my work. Sometimes it is in day to day interactions, and sometimes it's a longer stretch of challenging. Seeing them come out the other side emboldened is inspiring.

FAQs


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

I like to learn about my student's interest and experience in music and what their goals are! It is very important to get a feel for expectations and what I can offer them. Once we chat, I can get started with exercises which warm up and train the ear. Everyone things we sing with our voice, but its really our ears we are training. If you can't hear the sound in your head, you can not create it! 


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

I spend six years in higher education studying music, specifically voice performance. I sang in choirs and groups throughout my childhood and into college. I took lessons from three very amazing teachers during my undergrad and sang in our Opera Workshop (performance).


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$25 per half hour

$35 per 45 minutes

$45 per 60 minutes


How did you get started teaching?

After I finished my associates in music, I asked a local business owner if I could have a student or two to see if music education was my thing! She said yes! I knew after a piano class with four kids that this was my niche! I also had a voice teacher two years prior to this tell me sternly, "If you don't go into music education, you will ruin your life!" She was right!


What types of students have you worked with?

I usually work with kids. I feel like that is where the magic happens. I do teach some adults voice and that's fun, but for instruments, I like to stick with kids. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Please make sure this teacher fits your learning style and desires. I believe it is important that kids and adults go into lessons feeling they can be themselves, ask questions, say what they want and need. If you do not feel comfortable, then learning will not take place. 


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

Why do you want to learn? What will you do in your life to be consistent with learning? Where do you see yourself in a period of time? Is this a hobby or are you looking to do things professionally?
