Singing, Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Opera Voice
I started my singing career as a young girl, and noticed early on that I wanted to do music for the rest of my life. I was very involved in choirs and musicals throughout school, and that's where I decided I wanted to teach music. I attended Central Bible College on a music scholarship to study Vocal Performance, but left after 3 years to return home to Indiana. I am now an Indiana University Alumna. I have always believed in working hard and establishing confidence. Anyone who has a natural talent and wants to succeed in the music field will, if they work hard enough. I teach with a positive tone. I do not allow any low self esteem! I want my students to be comfortable singing, and I want to teach them to be confident in their gift.

Simply stated, music is my life! I began piano lessons at age 8, and voice lessons at age 12. I am a graduate of the Youth Performing Arts School in Louisville. While at Y.P.A.S. I majored in Voice, and traveled with the Concert Choir performing in Canada, Austria, Germany, and at the 2001 United States Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C.
I then went on to the University of Louisville, where I received a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. While at U of L, I was awarded the Charme Von Bomhard Award for the most promising voice student in the area of opera. Also during my time at U of L I performed with the prestigious Cardinal Singers, with whom I toured extensively in Germany, and was featured at the World Symposium on Choral Music in Kyoto, Japan. I have also sang with the Kentucky Opera in performances of Puccini's Tosca and Madame Butterfly.
Currently, I sing at many venues and with various groups throughout the Louisville Metro area. I perform music in a wide variety of styles and genres, including classical, jazz, and rock/ pop. I am the lead singer of a successful local band called Smooth Blvd. We perform dance music from numerous genres and decades, including such artists as Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, Whitney Houston, No Doubt, Janelle Monae , and much more. I am also a regularly featured soloist with Louisville's own Derby City Brass Band, the Rascals of Ragtyme, and the Paul Davis Quartet. In addition to all of this, I also perform a great deal of sacred literature as a cantor for St. Joseph Catholic Church, where I sing Masses in both English and Spanish.
As you can see I have a great deal of experience and expertise in many areas, and I look forward to sharing all of this and more with my students.

I started playing piano when I was 8. I started writing compositions around 9. Since I was singing in the choir, I began to fuse piano and singing, until I wrote my first song with words when I was twelve. Along the way I learned guitar, bass, drums, and various forms of composition and recording techniques. I toured with my band The Navigators for several years and I have had compositions of mine in TV shows like "The Unit" and in the documentary "Dreamriders" as well as various independent films. Along the way I have taught every age group from six months of age up to adult.
