Crystal specializes in high-quality voice piano lessons for both children and adults. She also offers movement for singers who aspire to make a good impression at auditions!

As an operatic mezzo-soprano, Crystal understands how to use the breath to best bring the art of music to life. She believes that breath is the basis of all musical phrasing, regardless of instrument.

Crystal has studied how the brain learns and retains information, and she incorporates "brain science techniques" into her teaching, leading to a better understanding and retention of learning. During lessons, students may learn basic technique, exercises, ear and rhythm training, and a wide variety of repertoire. She has prepared students for auditions, roles, performances and ABRSM exams for both voice and piano.

 

Students may take half hour, 45-minute, or 1 hour lessons. Lesson curriculum and length are based on the age and needs of the student.

30 Minutes - $45
