Private Lessons

Music is Love in search for a word

Private Piano Lessons

I provide each of my students with an individualized piano lesson that is both nurturing and challenging. I tailor the curriculum to match each individual's needs.  While focusing on proper technique, theory understanding, and skill development, I offer an uplifting experience so you can develop a passion for music and your growing skill. I offer private lessons both in my studio and virtually.

Private Voice Lessons

I provide individually tailored voice lessons that match each student's vocal type, skill, and musical development. My goal with a vocal student is never to make them recreate the voice of another famous singer, but rather develop their own special, unique voice and timbre. I strongly focus on technique so as to develop one's full potential. The repertoire is predominantly classical works (arias, art songs, lied's) or musical theatre works and on occasion, I will add in some fun Disney, pop, folk, or modern songs for students. I offer private lessons both in my studio and virtually.

I tailor private Music Theory and Composition lessons to each individual's needs and goals.  Whether the student is preparing for an AP Music Theory exam or wanting to compose their own music,  I am joyfully ready to assist you. I offer private lessons both in my studio and virtually.
