Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American & African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a current Vocal Music Performance graduate student at the University of Redlands, I have come in contact and learned from a vast amount of different musicians and professionals. A classically-trained bass-baritone with roots in R&B, Soul, Rock, Pop, and Jazz, I have aspirations to help each and every student realize their full musical potential.

Music is my life. I love music and all of its aspects and I love to teach it. The number one thing about me is that I'm patient. I have taught many students of many different age groups and with much success. My main instrument is voice and I can teach all types of singing: musical theater, pop, jazz, classical, and opera. In addition I can teach up to intermediate level piano and guitar. I can teach all the major and minor scales, chords, and progressions in addition to different types of music. I can also teach beginning drums and intermediate marching percussion.
I am also now available for online lessons for Singing and Guitar!

I fully enjoy teaching music and theater to others and spreading the art of performance, reaching out to all generations. I believe in customizing every lesson to be unique for my students in a way that will serve their individual needs. I teach with patience and encouragement and believe that students prosper and improve much more from a positive experience. My lessons are intended to be fun and influential in a positive light that can lead to a rewarding career, hobby, or just for personal enjoyment!
Every since I was a little girl, I have been devoted to the arts. When I began college, I knew that music was my path. As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I recieved my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women the Musical, Seussical the Musical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer at churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to perform and study music because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it.
With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life then they WILL achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

I am a professional, caring, and knowledgeable teacher. I believe that every student is an individual and I approach each lesson with that individual in mind. I have experience with all ages and am educated in many different teaching methods and styles. I am a confident believer that any person can succeed in music and enjoy music at some level.
I began taking piano lessons when I was six years old and I was hooked. I took lessons for 9 years and then resumed again when I was in college. In fourth grade I picked up the flute and the saxophone because I wanted to play in the school Jazz Band. I then took Alto Saxophone and Flute lessons for 8 years all the way through high school. It wasn’t until high school that I caught the singing bug when I joined the women’s choir as a sophomore. I quickly caught on and became a member of the concert choir and then the chamber group. We toured to Greece my Junior year singing in churches and even as entertainment on a cruise through the Greek Islands!
I hold a bachelor of music education from Chapman University in Orange, CA. I sang in the world renown University Choir and the smaller University singers chamber choir under the direction of choral music legend Dr. William Hall. I was awarded the annual director chosen choir award at the end of my senior year and was selected by my peers as Vice President of the choir during my senior year. During my time at Chapman we toured to the Miami, Colorado, the Pacific Northwest, and Italy, where we sang in St. Marks Cathedral in Venice, the Vatican, and the Sistine Chapel.
I am currently working on my Masters/PhD program at Claremont Graduate University in Musicology. I am still an active choir participant and am currently singing in the Pomona College Choir and the Pomona College Glee Club. Music has always been my passion, and I love helping others to experience music in the same way that I have.

I was trained abroad & performed to a variety of audiences of different cultures. My experiences helped me understand music as a passion & as a genre. It inspired me to share those skills & experiences to young students, musicians, actors and music enthusiasts to professional artists. Some of my students have joined competitions & talent shows, performing on tours as a professional, performed in front of family gatherings and in the shower! If you are preparing for a performance, an audition or you just want to learn music and have fun, then I may be able to help you...
