I'm a Berklee graduate with a degree in music. I have over 15 years experience playing composing and performing. I will teach you guitar, piano or bass in any given style. I'm great with music theory and ear training, and will work to make you a better musician. I perform regularly around Miami and Ft. Lauderdale.
Guitar, Piano, Clarinet, Classical Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory
As a little girl, music was my first language. I started playing instruments when I was in preschool. I sang, played baroque recorder, and was constantly composing melodies and improvising. In elementary school I developed a fascination with the clarinet, which I believed, at the time, produced the most beautiful sounds in the world. I started taking lessons in 5th grade and continued developing my talent at magnet schools. I received an intensive performance training at New World School of the Arts high school, playing in the wind ensemble and orchestra, and participated in competitions throughout the U.S. Meanwhile, I learned how to play rock on steel string guitar and electric guitar.
Some years later, I was admitted to the music composition program at New World School of the Arts College. This rigorous program requires that all students become well-rounded musicians. Throughout my years in the program, I became skilled not only at composition, but also at piano, classical guitar, music theory, sight-singing, ear-training and music technology, to name a few. Not too long after my arrival at the school, I was designated by my professors as a school tutor for the music department. As a tutor, I gained experience teaching hard-to-grasp concepts and skills to music students.
After my first year at New World, I was one out of two composers to be awarded a full scholarship. My compositions were always among the most ambitious pieces written and have been performed at various venues including the Colony Theatre in Miami Beach. What makes my music unique is its incorporation world music influences and its collaboration with other art forms, such as dance. One of my most exotic pieces and performances to date is an Indian inspired piece called Puriya Dhanashree Fusion, written for the viola, the Indian sitar, the Australian aboriginal didgeridoo, and a Persian drum known as the tombak. Currently, I am composing music for a short film that juxtaposes footage of the Everglades with footage of urban Miami to convey an environmental message.
Apart from school-related projects, I also compose and perform music for live theater. I performed and composed the music for the Florida International University production of the play Arabian Nights in 2011. I have also composed and performed, on the clarinet, music for plays that raise social awareness. In 2012, I composed the music for a play about human trafficking recorded at WLRN studios and a play about the Holocaust, most recently performed at the Biltmore’s stage. I am engaged as well with extracurricular projects that stimulate artistic creativity among young students. For the past two years, I helped organize performances of Miami Dade College musicians and poets working with one another, many of whom had never performed music or recited poetry before.
As you can see my approach to music is holistic and comprehensive. Music can be a hobby, a career, a form of therapy, an agent for social change and awareness, a discipline, a lifestyle, or a combination of any of these things. My job is to find out what music is for you and then help you develop your interest and skills as far as you want to take them. So, let’s begin and enjoy together the beauty of music!

Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15 albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. and I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.
