About Joyce

I have classical music degrees and have taught in the famous, East Coast Commercial Music College for over 3 decades! Specialties include Voice, Sight Singing, Performance, Basic Piano Skills for the Singer, Church Solo Preparation, Jazz Performance, Classes on Abdominal Breathing and Yoga as it is related to singing. I have successfully taught thousands of students from age 8 up through Adults aged 55.

I currently perform in the North County Area as a soloist with Big Bands, small Jazz Bands and in local churches. Mornings, I teach fitness and yoga classes in Encinitas and currently am scheduled to begin teaching The American Songbook for Osher (CSU). You may see student/parent and faculty testimonials as well as hear vocal demos in various styles upon request. I'm able to be reached daily via phone and email, and provide each student with a solid background that will increase his/her confidence through knowledge, forgoing usual 16th century traditions for usable contemporary application of the music skills the student will attain!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

I have taught Ear Training to College Students at Berklee College of Music, Boston since 1980. I taught under Ear Training Chairs, Stephen Plummer and Steven Prosser.

My opera and classical performances have also used the skills which I developed in this area.

General Music

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from U. Mass, Lowell and a Master's Degree in Music from New England Conservatory, Boston MA. I then taught music classes as a Professor at Berklee College of Music, Boston from 1978 through 2014. I have also taught private voice lessons during those years as well as teach private voice lessons currently.

Sight Singing

I have taught Sight Singing to Voice Majors and Instrumentalists at Berklee College of Music, where I have been employed from 1978 through January 2014.

I have studied Sight Singing since undergraduate school (1968 - 1972) U. Mass, Lowell.

I teach components of this subject in each private lesson, using actual songs as the basic material, augmenting sight singing with rhythmic and piano studies.
