Taylor teaches with a holistic approach by focusing on the whole body. She is dedicated to helping her students use proper body alignment when singing and playing the piano to ensure long term safety and success. For singers, she draws upon Yoga principles to engage the lower diaphragmatic breathing mechanism and help increase power and voice control. Taylor recognizes that music is not simply learning songs and playing music. She will focus on theory, music interpretation, and expression. While Voice was Taylor’s educational emphasis, she has additional experience teaching piano and ukulele as compliments to her voice lessons. Taylor is exceptional at creating lesson plans specific to the needs and personalities of her students.
Music is therapy for the soul and Taylor wishes to share that with others. She would love to further her music ambitions by becoming a Music Therapist. She looks forward to her first lesson with you!
