I provide students with the highest quality of music education, including music reading, theory, and performance coaching. I have a degree in music and have extensive teaching & performing experience.
I am patient and want students to succeed! Lesson plans are customized for each student’s individual needs so that optimal success can be achieved.
I would highly recommend Bella Angel Music to anyone looking to take music or singing lessons. The teachers are great...the students learn a lot and improve their music skills, regardless of how much experience they've had.
