I am from Morgantown, WV area and my speciality is with children. I have a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and a Masters in School Counseling from WVU. My lessons focus on proper vocal technique , healthy voice usage, basic musical concepts, and also incorporate an element of student empowerment and self confidence building. I work with students and parents to develop an individual growth plan that is holistic and tailored to the students goals and interests. I consider myself to be very creative and love the process of seeing how I can make lessons interesting, fun, and beneficial for the student.
Ludwig van Beethoven once said, “Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy”. I teach music because I believe that singing, performing, and music making blesses the soul in a unique way, unlike any other art form, area of study, or extra curricular activity can. My priority in teaching music is to provide students with challenging, personal, and meaningful experiences that allow them to connect to the music. In doing this, I wholeheartedly believe that students reap many benefits, like increased self-esteem, increased cultural awareness and sensitivity, and increased focus and drive. My energy & creativity will make for a great music learning experience. I can’t wait to meet your family!
