Teaching Philosophy: I have played Sara Bareilles' 'King of Anything' with a choir and yes, it's just as fun as it sounds. Being a professional accompanist, I am also a flutist and a mezzo soprano. I can teach you how to play chord charts along with reading music. I've played and walked in Mozart's footsteps in Salzburg, but I also love to explain jazz to my students. With two decades of experience in public and private education, I soloed on a Grammy-winning album in 1991.

Get to know Chelsea

With a BA in Music Education, she teaches technique through multiple genres, and recommends at least two years of musical training based on its resulting boost in all core subjects! Lessons are complete with theory, chord progressions, scales, interval ear training, and Italian flash cards which enhance the repertoire.

A singer-songwriter, she has traveled and directed choirs at home and abroad in ESL academies. She can speak to the many virtues of becoming an educator with 18 years of experience teaching beginners of all ages. Five-years-old is a great age to start as students have a firm grasp of the numbers 1-5 and the letters A-G.

Being able to read sheet music as well as chord charts are valuable, life-long skills she can provide. Appreciating that rock and pop are the great-grand children of jazz, one of the few genres to originate in the U.S.A., is important to our musical history.

Come study with a soloist on a Grammy-award-winning album from 1992! She is a mezzo-soprano, flutist, and professional accompanist who knows the value and expectations of sight-reading and performing.
