while they're young!!

 
With all the years, knowledge and experience of being a performer, recording artist and songwriter, I decided to start teaching...first with babies and then working my way up!! About 11 years ago, I founded a toddler music class, Music Time!! With Miss Carrie, L.L.C.  This class is designed for children ages infant to four (and their parents/caregivers!) With the foundation of traditional folk, classic children, original, and songs from our favorite musicals, I developed a curriculum that will provide an enriching musical experience for your child.  I concentrate on fine motor skills using hand interactive/finger play songs, work on rhythm by using a large assortment of percussion instruments teaching a variety of time signatures, and use movement and dance to enhance gross motor skills.  Most importantly though, your child is exposed to a musician with a lot of passion - they see and feel it when I play guitar and sing live for and with them.  Children are naturally responsive to music, and my goal is to have your child's first introduction to music filled with singing, dancing, laughter and especially - FUN!!


Music Time!! With Miss Carrie, L.L.C. is held in seven week sessions at
Creative Works for Children, 3 Canal Court,  Avon, CT

FOR THE OLDER STUDENT (AGE 10 AND UP...)

My style of teaching vocal is in the pop/rock/theater genres with special emphasis on breathing, volume, pitch and tongue placement.  As a professional singer and background vocalist I learned a variety of techniques that I use and teach which is more conducive to a pop style of singing rather than classical, for students who are interested in a contemporary sound.  I teach folk/rock acoustic style guitar with an emphasis on chord structure, rhythm and strumming techniques.  Saving music theory for last, I have my students learn a song of their choice immediately for inspiration purposes.  My students learn to play guitar very quickly with my easy going approach! Then, when the student is comfortable I begin music theory using teaching books.
For students ages 8 and up I offer private guitar and vocal lessons through Music and Arts Music in Avon, CT  on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 2:00-8:30pm!!  Please call them at 860-676-0048 to enroll in a private lesson. Tuition at Music and Arts is $27.00 for a half hour lesson.  Tuesday and Friday afternoons I reserve for private vocal, guitar or songwriting lessons from my home in Simsbury, CT.  If you are interested, please send me an e-mail from my contact page and I will be in touch with you! (Be sure to include your phone number too).  My schedule is full at this time (Summer 2014) but you can always sign onto my waiting list!! Tuition is $50 per hour. ($45 for 45 minutes, $30 for 30 minutes)  You can combine vocal and guitar in a one hour lesson, or you can devote the hour to songwriting.
