As a teacher, I'm very patient and have a comprehensive understanding of music theory, technique, and performance. I have two music degrees (a bachelors and an associates). I'm also insightful when it comes to diagnosing what a student requires to cultivate good technique and foster self confidence

        My favorite part of teaching is the joy I feel when a student grasps a new concept and “levels up”. I help students achieve this by demystifying the process of creating music through breaking it down into specific pieces that accumulate into a well rounded understanding of music theory and technique.

        I've taught music for over 6 years, and have students who have stayed with me for 4 years. My teaching topics include (but aren't limited to):

  • Guitar, banjo, bass, mandolin, dulcimer, ukulele, violin, piano, organ, accordian
  • Singing
  • Songwriting
  • Arrangement
  • Production
  • Music theory

Music theory:

  • Numerical system/Nashville notation (i.e. I, IV, V, etc)
  • Scales (i.e. major, lydian, mixolydian, melodic minor, etc)
  • Time signatures (4/4, 3/4, 6/8, 5/4, etc.)

Vocal Technique:

  • Breath support (diaphragm control, steady airflow)
  • Vocal runs
  • Tone (vowel shaping)
  • Clear consonants
