Approach, Philosophy, and Services
Leah believes in crafting learning experiences catered to the individual needs, abilities, and desires of the student. She has experience working with all levels and ages, from beginners wanting to start a new instrument, to students auditioning for music schools, to adults who want to revisit their childhood instrument for fun. She works with students preparing for band concerts, festivals, all-state, competitions, and more. Leah specializes in cultivating thoughtful students to find their individual musical voice, and to be their own best teacher.
Leah is available for private lessons, sectionals, chamber coachings, masterclasses, and workshops. She is knowledgeable in topics such as tone production, body awareness, musician wellness, performance anxiety, orchestral excerpt training, and effective practice methods.
Leah offers virtual lessons privately, as well as in-person lessons through Kathy's Music in Mt. Lebanon.
