Sharing my musical passion and talents with joy
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me and my music studio. I have been teaching private Composition, Voice, Piano lessons since August of 2015, and it has been a daily joy to share my love for music with others. In addition to teaching music lessons in my studio, I serve as the Music Theory Chair for Florida State through MTNA and also the Student Day Chair for Central Florida through MTNA. As a little girl, my parents knew that I had musical talent and encouraged me to sing around the house and in church. As I was preparing for college, I was certain that I wanted music to be a part of my life.
I received my Bachelor of Music degree with Magna Cum Laude honors in Music Theory and Composition with a focus in Classical Voice and piano. I had several enjoyable lead roles over the years ranging from Mozart's "Queen of the Night" to Offenbach's "Doll". Through my time in college, I competed in several NATS Regional and State competitions and won at 5 events in my category. I also received an Honorable Mention in the MET Young Artist Regional Competition in 2007.
I teach in a Socratic method, pushing each student to think through a problem and learn how to answer questions for himself. I am not as concerned with the student's speed of progression through a song as much as with his mastering each song. I help to develop and encourage student's stage performance with multiple recital opportunities each year in my studio, county recitals and Student Day. While I offer private Composition lessons, composition assignments are also given to each Voice and Piano student in my studio as a means to reinforce music theory concepts and allow all my students the opportunity to be creative and enjoy music on a more personal level.
My goal for every student is that they enjoy a lifelong passion in learning music and utilize persistence, self-evaluation, commitment to perfecting, and analyzing techniques in all other areas of life. I am sharing my musical passion, knowledge, and skills with others. I have extensive training in Music Composition, Music Theory, Vocal and Piano Performance. I offer private Composition, Music Theory, Voice and Piano lessons both in my studio and virtually.
