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.

I have a bachelor and masters degree in music education, with voice as principle instrument. I have been teaching voice lessons for twenty years and helping students develop ear training skills through focused listening and tone matching exercises, and through practicing various singing exercises. Students also benefit from learning proper breath support and sound production skills.

I am able to teach students the fundamentals of music, including how to read and play music, as well as how to play by ear.

Sight Singing

I have a bachelors and masters degree in music education, with voice as principle instrument, and piano, secondary. I have been teaching voice and piano lessons to students of all ages for the past 20 years. I help students develop a good voice and ear for music, as well as the skills to read music well enough to sight sing well.

Voice (Music)

I have a bachelor and masters degree in music education, with voice as principle instrument. I have taught private voice lessons to children and adults for twenty years, and have also led children's choirs. I help students develop basic skills of musicality, including proper breathing, enunciation, and expressiveness. I encourage them to use their most natural voices and to enjoy singing.

Yoga

I am a certified yoga instructor and have been teaching yoga for ten years to both children and adults. I enjoy helping others gain greater strength, balance, flexibility, relaxation, and health in body and mind. I encourage them to exercise safely, modifying poses according to their individual needs, and to enjoy moving mindfully with the breath.
