I am a Middle and High School Choral Director as well as a private piano and voice teacher. I have also taught Class Piano and Composition, A.P. Music Theory, Band, Music Theory, and Ear Training/Sight Singing.
I enjoy working with students one-on-one to bring out their unique potential and skills -- something that is difficult to do in a large classroom. During my first tutoring session, I enjoy discovering my student's unique learning style, so I can tailor my teaching specifically to them. I try whenever possible to weave creative, hands-on activities such as composition into the learning process so my students will connect personally to what they are learning.
I offer private Lessons in Piano, Voice, and Composition, as well as tutoring in General Music, Music Theory, Ear Training, and Sight Singing.

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.

Sight singing is an area in which Stacey has always been strong; because of this, she served as teachers assistant in both college and graduate school, guiding students to sing increasingly difficult musical passages using both solfege and numerical syllables. Stacey integrates sight singing into all of her choral curricula, and has also taught Sight Singing for 2 years as part of A.P. Music Theory. This past year, one of her high school freshmen earned a 5 on his A.P. Music Theory Exam. Since each student's learning style is so different, Stacey's aim is to teach each student the unique techniques that will help them to be successful.
