I have been teaching private voice and piano lessons for over 30 years. I live in
Reno, NV. I am classically trained, and well versed in several styles of
music. Such as: pop, musical theater, contemporary christian, blues and classical.
I balance my lessons with strong technique and musical knowledge and
lots of fun. I accept ages 5 and up, and levels of musicians.
I am also a singer/songwriter and working on my first Contemporary Christian Album.
I love to help my students compose their own music and record it as well.
I hold one large recital per year in the fall. I also offer my students more performing opportunities with more intimate "open-house" performances in my studio. This allows my students who experience stage fright an avenue to perform in a comfortable environment.
I enjoy recording my students and producing c.d.'s, video's and other multi-media projects.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music from Friends University, Wichita, KS.
I also completed three years of Master's level work at Wichita State University,
where I taught private voice instruction as a Graduate Teachers Assistant.
In 1995, I won the Senior Division of the National Association of Teacher's of Singing.
I sing at weddings and special events as well as retirement centers and churches.
My fee's are very reasonable. For students who pay monthly, my fee is: $25.00 per half
hour, $35.00 for a 45 minute lesson, and $45.00 for an hour lesson. I charge $5.00 more
per lesson if paid weekly. I teach Monday-Friday.
