Brenda teaches privately by Skype, or by prior arrangement in person at Festivals, Conferences and Workshops where she is teaching.
Brenda teaches voice, vocal harmony, piano and guitar to students of any age. She also teaches beginning ukulele, bass guitar, mandolin and violin. Her goal is for students to leave her music studio feeling good about themselves while learning a music skill. She believes students learn effortlessly when they are learning to play or sing the style (s) of music they enjoy at a level appropriate for them.
Brenda’s approach systematically teaches the fundamentals of music theory and rhythm. She understands students often feel vulnerable when learning to sing or play an instrument. Brenda’s music education/music therapy background gives her the skills to help students deal constructively with whatever personal issues may arise during lessons such as insecurities, lack of self-confidence or negative past experiences.
Brenda teaching is the one stop for exploring voice, piano and guitar. Vocal students are encouraged to learn to accompany themselves on piano or guitar. Because a student’s first instrument is not necessarily their instrument of passion, lessons with Brenda include the opportunity to explore studying voice, piano and/or guitar at any given time. Brenda teaches in the hope that all students will enjoy music for the rest of their lives.
