Voice students will learn to improve their technique through proper breathing, correct vowels, space, and resonance. I have a classical background, but I train students in musical theater, pop and jazz, as well as classical. I am well versed in song literature and operatic repertoire in English, French, German, and Italian. I will help you develop a solid foundation of technique help you sing in the style of music you like. Singing is fun! But it's also a lot of hard work. You will only get out of it what you put into it.
I teach piano lessons to beginners. Students will learn to read music, and play with proper technique. Theory is incorporated into every lesson. I use the Faber Lesson, Theory, and Performance books, along with scales and supplemental materials. Piano is a very valuable skill to have. It is a great instrument to learn for an introduction to music, and will help with learning to sing and to play other instruments. Practice, practice, practice!
