University of New Hampshire (Vocal Performance)
University of Massachusetts Amherst (Master's)
Hello! I'm currently a graduate student at the University of Massachussetts Amherst pursuing my Master's degree in Choral Conducting. I received my undergraduate degree in vocal performance from the University of New Hampshire. At UMass, I teach two different choirs and take classes in advanced music theory and history. I also serve as a teaching assistant for an arts appreciation course at the university that focuses on exposing students of various interests and abilities to various forms of art including music, dance and fine arts. Both currently at UMass and at UNH, I served as a tutor to music students needing extra help in music theory and history as well as sight-reading and aural skills. I have also served as a voice teacher to those interested in singing and vocal pedagogy.
My love for music grows more and more every single day and I truly want to share my experiences with others who want to learn more about music. Being a music student, I know how challenging studying music can be. With my experience and knowledge of music, I am more than comfortable assisting in the musical development of any one who is willing to learn - any age, any experience!
I have taken extensive surveys of music history both at UNH and at UMass. From the origins of music to the 20th century, I have acquired a very broad knowledge of music history and have plenty of resources to aid in the understanding of the development of music throughout the centuries. Ear Training was honestly one of my favorite classes while at UNH. Rhythmic, harmonic and melodic dictation was always fun to me! Everyone hears differently and I have acquired quite a few different techniques to help students to improve their aural skills. These skills can also carry over into music theory, in which I'm a secretly a nerd for. From learning lines and spaces of a staff to analyzing 20th century music practices, I am ready to help wherever you are in your studies. All of these studies can also transfer to piano studies. I have been playing piano for over 15 years and am ready to assist beginning and intermediate students.
If you have any questions about me or want to get in touch regarding scheduling some lessons, please do not hesitate to get in contact with me! I look forward to hearing from you! Hello!

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.
