Hello and welcome to my website! I am a seasoned music teacher, offering private instruction in South Portland, Maine. I specialize in singing and piano lessons for kids and technique & repertoire coaching for young advanced classical and musical theater singers. I have taught at various institutions including Pomfret School, University of Connecticut Community School for the Arts, and the Rectory School. I am a classically trained soprano with a music performance degree from Boston University and graduate studies at the University of Connecticut. With young singers I focus on developing musicianship, confidence, and healthy vocal habits. As children's voices develop (around age 13) I begin adding vocal technique to my instruction. I teach piano lessons for school-aged children, beginning through intermediate. My piano method of choice is Faber & Faber's Piano Adventures; it allows for excellent foundations in technique and music literacy. Lessons are tailored to suit my students' needs and interests, in duration and in content.
My husband, Gregoíre Pearce, offers private guitar instruction in South Portland. Greg's specialties include Flamenco, Classical, and Modern pick-style instruction.
