I have worked with Japanese, Korean, Indian, Dutch, Brazilian, Russian and Iranian students, either in small groups or individually.

I have a Master's Degree in Music. I have taught voice (all levels, individually and in a classroom setting), music theory fundamentals, musicianship, music appreciation, sight singing and ear training, at the high school and college levels since 1998.
I feel very well qualified to teach these music subjects, having received my Masters of Music Degree with Distinction.
I have taught music appreciation at the college level since 2001. I am very knowledgeable about music history, and can easily discuss the Baroque, Classical and Romantic era styles and composers as they pertain to music history.
I have my Master's degree in Music and have taught sight-singing, both in a classroom setting and individually.
I have successfully demonstrated how to identify certain patterns while sight-singing, which include interval recognition, setting a slow, steady tempo and how the individual notes can relate to certain common chord progressions.
I have had great success with my sight-singing students.
I am bilingual (English/Spanish). I tutor beginning and intermediate students. I can explain grammar rules and conjugate verbs (regular/irregular) in all tenses, and I teach proper pronunciation.
I have taught voice privately since 1985. I have taught class voice at the college level (beginning, intermediate and advanced) since 1998.
With a Master's degree in Vocal Performance, I am well equipped with the knowledge of how to develop one's singing voice. I am a good communicator, and will address proper posture, breathing techniques, and developing a beautiful tone quality.
