My philosophy for working with students is taking an individualized approach while laying down a strong foundation for music and reinforcing the fundamentals at a comfortable pace through the use of method books and the students' desired repertoire. I always cater my instructional approaches to their strengths, weaknesses, and particular learning style. When meeting with a new student, I look at what they have to offer and work to bring out the best musician within.
I've been teaching for 2 and a half years while working towards my Bachelor of Music Education and Performance degree at Rutgers University. I've taught many students of all ages and abilities in individual and group settings, as well as performing regularly myself. I've had experience working with different teachers and coaches as well as being in a variety of ensembles. From performing the repertoire to observing and working with my directors during rehearsals, my musical experiences have inspired me to make a difference in the lives of the next generation the same way that my music teachers made a difference in mine.

I've met Erin the previous year on campus as a student. After getting to know her, I learned of her strong passion for singing and her dedication to teaching and helping her students. She's a hard worker whom I'm sure would make a great teacher
I have known Erin since 2008; therefore, I can confidently say that she is one of the most responsible and comprehensive singing teachers you will ever have the honor of learning from! Erin truly cares about all of her students, expertly clarifies your questions, and shows passion and dedication towards her craft. It is easy to communicate with Erin as she is easily approachable, which makes it quite simple to learn and understand the material she is conveying. She is incredibly driven in everything that she does, though especially with singing and teaching, and will show prospective students nothing but respect, passion, and expertise in her teaching endeavors.
I had Ms Erin teaching me at music school for almost a year and have to say she is an excellent teacher. She really focuses on technique and sight singing which is great because these tools became very useful as the difficulty of the pieces progressed. She is knowledgeable and hard working. She is able to play the piano which for me was great because when practicing my performance she was able to play the accompaniment. She made me a much better singer and performer. I had originally started taking classes with her to prepare for an audition but because I enjoyed the classes so much and saw myself improving, I decided to stay longer. I would recommend Erin to anyone looking to take voice lessons.
Erin completely embodies both words listed: “trustworthy” and “teacher.” Before I became a student of music, Erin would spend precious hours helping me understand all the nuances that exist in the world of song, and she would give plenty of examples for me to further understand the subject matter. I had no problem admitting to Erin that I was, at first, more reserved when it came to performing music. But, I had no problem talking to Erin about this. She helped me get to where I am now. Erin is many things, and “trustworthy teacher” is only scratching the surface.
Erin was extremely professional and really went the extra mile to teach me how to sing! She was very patient and made sure that I understood what I was doing so that I could learn how to use my voice for singing! I highly recommend her because she will take the time to really teach you the in and outs of singing and make sure that you have a fun time doing it too!
