Arguably one of the most dynamic emerging vocal producers and songwriters to penetrate the music industry, “Candy” offers a brave, but fresh take on life through song. A native of Washington D.C., Candy studied and performed with the esteemed Washington Performing Arts Society for 7 years and graduated from Howard University with a degree in Fine Arts. She has also trained and studied with the Seth Riggs team directly in Los Angeles, which afforded her 2 years of solid experience with the technique used by Whitney Houston, Beyonce', Michael Jackson and many other greats. Broadway technique and Musical Theatre are no stranger to her either, with 4 years of professional training and performing in the genre. Having written her first song at 16, Candy is practiced. “My lyrics are bold, vulnerable, transparent & imaginative. I'm critical except in some very cathartic moments where I'm venting completely free...” Candy explains. With a range that spans several genres, it becomes increasingly easy to see why her buzz is growing. Candy has already worked with some of the most respected names in music including Rich Harrison (Crazy In Love-Beyonce, No One Gonna Love You-Jennifer Hudson), Jazze Pha (Ciara, Cee Lo, T.I.), and James “Big Jim” Wright (Yolanda Adams, Chaka Khan, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson), having also caught the attention of Missy Elliot and Swizz Beats. The list continues to expand. We all have a story to tell and with Candy’s star only just beginning to rise. This fresh, experienced, professional hopeful has a lot to offer.

My name is Fox, and I've been teaching music for over a decade. I studied music at Pacific Lutheran University, and received a masters degree in Audio Engineering from the Conservatory f Recording Arts and Sciences. I have been writing music professionally since 2009, and write primarily for film, television and video games under master film composer Klaus Badelt. As a musician, I have performed all across the United States and won a number of awards for performance and excellence.
I am also a professional audio engineer, specializing in recording, mixing and editing. Earning my degree from the Conservatory or Recording Arts and Sciences has allowed me to fine-tune my audio engineering skills on both sides of the glass in recording studios, as well as post-production for film, television and video games.
I want to give this all to you. My desire to teach music is rooted in my love for the art. I love watching people, regardless of age or experience, learn and grow with their talents and gifts. I have extensive experience teaching guitar, bass guitar, voice, choir, musical performance and music theory.

I grew up with music surrounding me. Both my parents play many instruments and they have passed that love on to me and my brothers. I started singing as a toddler and piano and flute came soon after. I love to teach, am patient and help my students to achieve their best. I create an environment for my students to feel safe expressing themselves, making mistakes,laughing and honing their musical language.
In my voice lessons I teach solid technique focusing on bringing out the beauty of each individual's voice giving them the tools to be able to sing musically. I've been told by students that they have learned more from me in 2 lessons then they have working with prior teachers for years.
I earned my BM in Vocal Performance from the distinguished Eastman School of Music. I have earned the Bravo!Scholar and Howard Hanson award as well as first place in the Schubert Club vocal competition. I continue my studies with acclaimed Mezzo-soprano Gail Dubinbaum in Phoenix and I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).
I've sung all over the united states as well as in Germany and Italy. I performed the role of Frasquita in Phoenix Opera's production of Carmen as well as La Fata Azzurra in "La Bella Dormente nel Bosco" and as Sister Constance in "Dialogues des Carmelites" of which I was acclaimed by reviewers to have "revealed a luminous voice, and sang with ease and spontaneity." I have been a soloist with the St Paul Chamber Orchestra as well as with the Eastman Collegium. This past December I was a featured soloist with the Phoenix Symphony and returned to the Phoenix Opera to perform The Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute as well as worked with the Ohio Light Opera performing the lead roles of Hannah Glawari in "The Merry Widow" and Madame Pompadour in "Madame Pompadour."
I'm equally comfortable with musical theater and have played leading roles in many productions including Marian in "The Music Man," Laurie in Oklahoma, Margy in "State Fair," Rapunzel in "Into the Woods," and Mrs. Gardiner in the premier production of "Pride and Prejudice."
My students have advanced in the Classical Singer National Competition, Arizona Fiesta Chorus Competition, Hot Pipes Competition, and have been accepted to and attended summer programs at distinguished music schools including Westminster College and Eastman School of Music. They also perform with local theaters including Copperstar Theater, Moezart Productions, EVCT and more.
