Professional singer with years of performance and teaching experience (voice, piano, music theory) offers in-person and on-line individual and group lessons for children and adults (any level/genre)

Methodology

DMA Voice and PhD Musicology (ABD, 2023) - University of North Texas

My take is that every person has a different instrument, mindset, goal, pace, and sensitivity: no person is the same. I do not believe in "one-size-fits-all" approaches, so I take every case differently.
I generally take the first lesson to get to know the students' goals, preferences, voice, etc., and the first tutoring session as an individual experience.

Background

DMA Voice (minor: music theory, 2023) and PhD Musicology (minor: early music performance. ABD, 2023) - University of North Texas
Previously: MM Voice and MA Musicology (2017, 2018) - University of Missouri
Master's Degree in 'Canto Lirico' (2013) - Conservatorio di Avellino, Italy
BA Philosophy (minor: foreign languages, 2010) - University of Lisbon, Portugal


I have been teaching voice lessons (any level) since 2014; music theory and piano since 2015, both in Missouri (regularly) and in Portugal (intermittently). I've been teaching and tutoring all three subjects in Texas since 2018, and now also on-line.
I can teach in English, Portuguese (Brazil and European), Italian, and Spanish.

In Missouri I taught voice and music theory as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at a University of Missouri and, later, at Mexico Missouri Presser Performing Arts Center. I had a voice studio of ca. 10 students each semester, including of musical theater performers, opera singers, and other musicians.
In the DFW area I have worked at music academies and have my own private studio. I also frequently give individual vocal coaching session, currently on-line only.
