I offer individualized instruction within students’ own homes for piano, voice, and theory/composition. I have 10 years of teaching experience along with extensive vocal and piano training at Arizona State University. This includes performing leading roles in operas and musical theater productions, singing in choral ensembles including ASU’s prestigious Chamber Singers, and being coached in theory, composition, and conducting. I have worked with many teens in preparation for Regionals and All-State choir auditions. My own original solo piano music has been released on several albums and can be heard on dozens of online radios, including Pandora Internet Radio and Whisperings Solo Piano Radio. Although I have a classical background in voice and piano performance, I strive to emphasize the importance of expressive creativity and musical imagination. I want my students to learn to love music and find joy in this art form. I decide which method books to use after I’ve met each student for the first time, and I encourage them to learn a combination of pieces that they enjoy and that also challenge. I hold 2 recitals per year (spring and fall) in which students perform prepared pieces in front of other students and family.Lessons are offered Monday through Saturday throughout the East Valley (Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, etc.) For tuition costs, schedule openings, and other questions, please feel free to send me an email or call (480) 643-9594.
