Hello all! My name is Emily and I am a music educator and professional musician from Prince George's County, Maryland. I graduated from Grove City College with a degree in Music Education, where my concentration was Percussion and Voice. I also received my Masters of Education from Concordia University-Portland. I am currently an elementary music teacher with Prince George's County Schools, where I have been teaching in the same school since 2012. I have had years of lessons myself and have taught many students as well. I also have worked as a professional musician for almost 10 years, and have a lot of experience creating setlists, communicating with audiences, and being a live musician. As a vocalist, I can teach you how to sing anything from Top 40 hits to Broadway numbers to Operatic Arias. I will help you gain confidence as a performer and vocal strength. I am also prepared to teach beginning piano lessons to help you learn to accompany yourself and others. Overall, I offer experience, knowledge, and a chance to get out of your shell and onto a stage.

In addition to music lessons, I can also be of service as an elementary tutor. While I teach music in school, I work very closely with classroom teachers and am comfortable working with students in Kindergarten through 5th grade who need help with their schoolwork.

Music and math work hand in hand. I have taken classes on teaching elementary math and can work with students to help them understand.

I am an avid reader and am very passionate about it. I have spent a lot of time developing reading lessons and projects and can therefore be of help with students struggling with reading. I have also taken public speaking classes, acted in plays, and teach full time, so public speaking is something I have great confidence in.

I work in an elementary school and, though I teach music, I work very closely with the reading teachers. I have a lot of experience helping students with homework.

I have a passion for teaching and I firmly believe that knowledge is power

Voice lessons

Emily helped me “Not to hate my voice” Also encouraged me to just go for it ! Sing, sing, sing and work on sounds ! Lol ! make loud sounds/noise while practicing.

Eva, 3 lessons with Emily

Open, knowledgeable, and warm

Emily focused on my vocal goals and really met me at my level. She is obviously trained in music and knows how to teach! She is warm and encouraging. Highly recommend Emily for adults or children.

Emily’s vocal exercises have helped strengthen my voice and train my ear. Her notes also help me improve as she’s excellent at communicating what I need to do to get better. She’s also super nice, patient and motivating.

Emily is very helpful

I went into this really not knowing what to expect or even if I would want to stick with it. Emily is really helping me to understand my voice more and how to achieve a better singing voice.

Chrystal, 6 lessons with Emily

Great piano teacher for kids

She's been very encouraging and has helped keep my 11 year old daughter interested. My daughter is really shy, so I was a little worried, but she is enjoying it and doing well.
