Taylor is a graduate of Westminster Choir College with a Bachelor's of Music in Theory and Composition. During her time at Westminster, she studied voice and piano, as well as sang in the world renowned Westminster Symphonic Choir. With Symphonic Choir, she had the privilege of performing with the The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall and the Kimmel Center under the direction of famous conductors such as Yannick Nezet-Seguin and Alan Gilbert.
In a less classical sense, Taylor also plays guitar, violin and ukulele. She played in folk-rock bands and has her own projects including a 5 track EP (available on all musical platforms) called "Beautiful Words". She also has done many rock choir shows- including the entirety of Kanye West 808's and Heartbreak album and a QUEEN tribute concert. She truly enjoys playing and teaching music from nearly every genre and category. She was also picked as one of the greater Philadelphia region's top singer/songwriters in 2018, and loves helping other young artists begin to write their own music.
Taylor has been teaching music for nearly 10 years now- and through her past experiences she has learned that every student learns in a different way (also known as the multiple intelligences theory). Once she is able to figure out which style of learning is best for you (i.e. auditory, visual, kinesthetic), she will use that method to create a successful approach to lessons. Taylor believes in finding and fueling what makes each student passionate about their chosen instrument and music.
