Emma S., Voice
Emma knew she wanted to teach private music lessons since she first began piano at the age of 8. By the age of 15, she wrote her own musical compositions, which were eventually copyrighted. While in college, Emma was selected to perform every year for the Steinbrecher-Mayers Honors Recital both for voice and piano. She taught several students during her high school years, but she got her first taste of professional piano and vocal teaching during her college pedagogy classes at Silver Lake College in Manitowoc, where she minored in music. Since graduating, Emma continues to use her musical skills to teach a variety of age levels and abilities. She tailors each individual lesson to the students' needs, based on how fast/slow they want to learn. She encourages creativity and curiosity, and loves introducing multiple styles and genres to her students. Theory is a prominent focus in Emma's lessons, as well as technique. For her vocal students, the Kodaly concept is incorporated to give a stronger foundation for ear training.
