Baldwin Wallace University (Vocal Performance)
I am a very charismatic, energetic and patient music coach. I am 25 years old and have been working with vocalists for 6 years. My students have been able to achieve success in top choirs along with tour choirs around the Cleveland and Lorain County area. My training as a vocalist and performer has taken me through various venues such as leading roles in musical theatre, operettas and operas. I have been the lead vocalist in popular music with genres such as: Irish, Celtic, folk, Disney and pop. Recently I returned from Italy where I spent a month studying Italian and intensive vocal training. I have spent several years now as a vocal coach, piano instructor (for beginners), flute teacher (for beginners) and Music Theory coach for individuals wanting to know how to read music to individuals wanting to understand the details of musical harmonics as well as rules through chord progressions and musical notation.
I have enjoyed working with adults and children with and with out special needs for several years now. My teaching focuses around a wide variety of student's, ages and musical interests that expand from Classical music to Pop music. I love watching and working with students that are shy, reserved and unsure of their own abilities grow and expand as confident and talented individual singers. My experience as a performer has assisted a lot of students of mine through not just music but expression, acting, and detailed performance structure on how to perform in front of an audience in all styles, genres and venues.

I have always believed that anyone has a part to play in music. When it comes to learning and studying music I always follow what interests the student. If you feel like performance is not your route then we will not go that direction. If you feel you have a yearning for the performance world, then we will explore what routes can be available for you. I always set my students on a very healthy and positive experience through their desired path in the musical world. Bottom line………..if you want it…..…. I will help you get it!

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 of Music Vocal Performance from Baldwin Wallace University and have had courses in instructing students in vocalization through Baldwin Wallace. I have been teaching for 6 years.
