Hello, I am looking forward to meeting you and teaching your child or you. My sole interest as a music instructor is to assist in developing the creativity of children and adults as well as developing self confidence, healthy self esteem and a continued love for music. Teaching shy children is no challenge for me. I used to be shy myself and understand that for some children a little patience and a slower pace is needed in order to feel comfortable.
I am also a public school chorus teacher whose choruses compete and have rated 'superior' for musical excellence since 2009. They have also opened for the Rockettes at Radio city Music Hall, sang at Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, and sang The National Anthem for the Staten Island Yankees. In being a lifetime learner, I have a passion for developing this same passion in your children as well.
