Enthusiastic teacher willing to share her love of singing with the students!

Methodology

During our first lesson, I will talk to the students about proper breathing, the muscles engaged and generally body as the instrument. Next I warm up their voice with vocal exercises that will help with expanding the range and building their techniques. Then they can sing something they like for me so I can hear their voice and find out their vocal range. We will then talk about their favorite songs/artists and the styles they are interested at, so I can suggest songs that will work on their range and improve their techniques and of course set up a lesson plan based on that.

Background

I’m a professional opera singer and teacher with a master’s degree in Vocal Performances, I’m also a certified CCM teacher from Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. I teach voice and piano lessons as well as music theory. I have the experience of working with kids and adults with a wide range of musical backgrounds and different ages. I teach contemporary singing styles like pop, rock, jazz, R&B, as well as musical theater and opera. I have a lot of acting and performance experience as I've been in a lot of productions.
