O'Donnell Voice and Piano Studio

I teach voice lessons and/or piano lessons for both children and adults, beginners through advanced.

For voice lessons, using age appropriate classical, folk & Broadway vocal literature, I teach music reading, proper breathing technique, how to use the voice most effectively, performance tips including stage presence, how to connect with your audience, singing with emotion, lyrical interpretation, and vocal health care - how to keep the voice in top shape.

For piano lessons, using age appropriate piano literature, I teach basic music and keyboard fundamentals such as rhythm, note-reading, technique, theory, ear training, improvisation, and performing as well as music appreciation and music history. Technology is part of the lessons, using iPads, digital piano and music games.

My studio holds two recitals during the year - one in February and one in May.
