If you are motivated and hard working, then you will go far. I am not only your music teacher, I am also your coach, your mentor, and your biggest fan.

Learning an instrument is a skill that takes time and commitment. Continuous lessons allow us the time to focus on and perfect techniques, performance skills, and develop a breadth of repertoire. We strongly encourage making a long-term commitment to lessons in order to develop skills and get the results you want.
Colorado All-State Choir Preparation
Each year I help students who are interested in the Colorado All State Choir prepare for their audition, and I have had several students be accepted. We work on sight reading skills, aural recall, scales (major/minor/chromatic), intonation and an appropriate audition piece. If you are interested in this, please let me know as soon as possible so we can begin preparing accordingly.
The 2016-2017 Colorado All State Choir TBD. For more details and to register for an audition, visit http://www.aschoir.com/

Audition Prep Coaching (Theatre)
Hour long coaching sessions for students and adults who are preparing for theatre/musical theatre auditions, or working on developing a character they've been cast as. I have 20+ years of theatrical experience, and many of my students have been offered major or minor roles in the productions they auditioned for. Some of my students also have successfully auditioned for regional performing arts schools.
