Tutor Information


When I was a kid, I struggled a lot to learn in a traditional classroom setting. I didn't understand why I had to sit still and why I wasn't allowed to make my own schedule and explore my own interests. It was so hard for me to focus on subjects that I didn't enjoy and to sit still for a long period of time. As an adult, I realized how much I would've benefitted from a teacher that would take the time to teach me in a way my brain could understand. Someone who cared about MY interests and passions and would use that information to engage me in subjects I wasn't as crazy about. Someone who could be patient and creative and who believed in me! I ended up becoming the type of teacher I always needed as a kid. I care about my students and their individual paths and truly believe that we all have our own unique way of learning! For the last 5 years, I’ve been teaching music to children of all ages. I've worked in a couple of different music schools as well as my own private lessons teaching piano, guitar, and vocal training. I teach my students to write music using the skills they already had while also developing new ones. I’ve found songwriting to be not only an amazing tool for my own life, but to be an amazing way for children to express their feelings and use their imagination and creativity. With my extensive experience in music, songwriting and music education, i've found that I have the expertise to teach reading, writing, and speech. I have studied vocal technique and songwriting for the last 10 years. I received my Bachelor of Music degree from The City College of New York in June of 2022.

Angie's Chill Vibes & Infectious Jazz Enthusiasm

Diving into jazz vocals with Angie Pastor was an eye-opener. Her unique take on scat singing totally transformed my approach. She dropped this killer analogy that just made everything click for me. Angie’s lessons are the perfect mix of chill vibes and serious skill-building. She’s got this way of making complex stuff feel like we’re just messing around with music, which is pretty awesome. Honestly, Angie’s more than a vocal coach; she’s like that cool, artsy freind who pushes you to explore and doesn’t let you settle for just okay. Can’t wait to see where she takes my jazz journey next. She’s got this infectious passion that makes you wanna dive deeper into the music.
