Do you want vocal instruction that gets you the results you're after? Do you want an instructor that has knowledge and expertise in most singing styles, and won't force you to stick to one? Are you a complete beginner that has always wondered "what if"? Maybe you're a seasoned vocalist and performer that needs specialized advice and outside perspective? I have nearly 20 years of experience as a singer, musician, and performer; and nearly 8 years of experience teaching students of all ability levels to surpass their own expectations and achieve their goals. If we work together, you will improve in every area as you learn the vital skills of intelligent practicing, technique, musicianship, and the art of performance.
Learn all of the fundamentals to start or reinforce your journey with the acoustic guitar. As a student you gain the abilities to play chords and scales, read tabs and music notation, and learn to sing and play at the same time (if you sing as well).
Start your path toward becoming a pianist and musician the right way with proper fundamentals and technique. Learn valuable exercises, theory, and pieces/songs with the guidance of a trained musician and performer. Also, learn to supplement and enhance your abilities in other instruments through learning to read and play your parts on the piano efficiently and accurately.
