ABOUt

I offer private voice, accordion and guitar lessons to people of all ages, and also teach group harmony classes at the Jalopy Theatre and School of Music.

My teaching philosophy is that we learn best when we’re having a good time and are excited about the material, with a few technical exercises thrown in for good measure. I make my lesson plans for each student individually depending on what they're interested in, the aim being to enable their self-expression and deepen their connection to themselves through their voice. In my teaching, I incorporate material from several different folk traditions, including songs from Georgia, Ukraine, Greece, Ireland and the United States. I also offer basic to intermediate music theory and sight-reading as part of these lessons, as desired, and am available for choral instruction.
