Are you struggling with singing those high notes or itching to learn how to play the piano? Taking music lessons from me will help you at any skill level or age. For my online lessons, all you need is internet connection and a smart device! My goal is to help you improve your sound, build confidence in your music, and develop body awareness. If you're an amateur, taking lessons from me can be therapeutic and enriching to your regular life. At the beginner level, you will learn how to read music, develop stronger ears, and find music that you enjoy. If you're an intermediate, I can help you advance your technique and tackle harder music. For advanced players, I can help you prep for serious auditions and competitions.
The piano has a rich history involving various musical idioms such as Western Art and jazz. It is perhaps the easiest instrument to ever learn, yet also the most difficult to master. Beginners, you will learn the basics of playing the keyboard, using your ears, and reading music. We will explore a variety of styles reflecting European and American traditions and learn how to create harmony with chords. Intermediate and advanced students, you are welcome to branch off into jazz and pop/rock styles, stick to a classical track, or develop your own eclectic pre-college curriculum. On the contemporary track, you will learn the collaborative art of jazz harmony, improvisation, and rhythmic styles.
I can help you fully realize your unique voice and sing beautifully and functionally. I invite you to present songs you like, especially your favorites, or I can help by introducing new songs for you to learn. My passion is in classical, musical theatre, pop/rock, and jazz styles, but I teach all contemporary styles. You can learn how to use solfege, hone your aural skills, and develop a solid foundation of your voice. I offer unique vocalises (vocal exercises) that will help you build technique. Learning how to sing functionally is also applicable to other areas in your life, such as optimizing your body posture, breathing, speaking voice.
