ABOUT MY TEACHING

I offer private lessons in voice, guitar and accordion to people ages 3 to 122.

I love working with anyone who is excited to learn how to speak through their instrument, and incorporate material from different folk traditions from around the world, including songs from Georgia, Ukraine, Greece and songs in the Spanish language. I also offer basic to intermediate music theory and sight-reading as part of these lessons, as desired. And if a student likes to sing and play an instrument, we can work with both elements. 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 cater my lessons to each student individually depending on what they're interested in, the aim being to enable their self-expression and deepen their connection to themselves/their music.

I also offer group singing classes; in these the material can range from simple rounds and ballads to five-part polyphonic choral arrangements. As you like !

I have been teaching children and adults privately and in classroom settings since 2015, as the music teacher at Pono Learning Center, in classes for toddlers at Kids at Work, as summer staff at Bread and Puppet Theater and as a guest instructor for the Jalopy Chorus at the Jalopy Theater and School of Music.
