Learn to play music!
I'm currently offering private lessons for a limited number of students!
My music lessons are geared for people with no or little experience - I love working with total beginners! I prefer to work with adults and teens and children over the age of 7. I offer a broad, introduction to music and developing musicality through voice, instruments and freeing up creativity (vs concentrating on a specific instrument). If you consider yourself a beginner, or wish to find or develop your musicality, then this is for you! I am here to help you find your inner musician.
• Have you ever wanted to play music?
• Do you stand in awe at musicians and wonder if you can ever do that?
• If you play already, do you want to take your current musicality to the next level? And learn how to be the kind of musician people love jamming with? Learn how to listen and communicate better?
• Do you want to learn how to sing, play an instrument and jam with friends around a campfire?
• Do you want more confidence in your singing voice? Are you scared of singing in front of other people? (or even in the shower) Are you self conscious when you sing? Would you LOVE to join in on sing-a-longs and sing in a choir with confidence?
If any of these are YOU, then this is for YOU!
I'm here to playfully walk with you through the doorway of music. There, we will find what's inside of you and let it OUT!
Each lesson is customized for what you want to learn. We will begin by talking about your goals and then mix and match the fun!
LESSON OFFERINGS INCLUDE:
• Basic vocal coaching - Find confidence in your voice, overcome fears and blocks. Learn how to warm it up, project, increase range and then sing with others!
• Vocal improvising - Learn how to use your voice as an instrument of communication with others. Build confidence in your ability to jam and harmonize! Learn how to jump in on vocal jams and rock out like Bobby McFerrin!

• Music theory and mystery school: Understand the theory behind the music as a means of communicating with others. It's as simple as Do Re Mi! Learn about scales, sharps, flats, chords and what all of those little notes mean on the paper.
• Basic rhythm and drumming: Develop your rhythmic abilities on the hand drum and percussion. Develop understanding of common rhythms from different places and cultures. Learn how to JAM with others in a hippie drum circle!
• Find your sense of FUN! The main part about working with ME is that you are willing to get silly. Learn how to free up your creativity and sense of play and wonder.
