About Erin

Born in Queens and raised in Tokyo, Japan, I started performing at the age of nine. I made my stage debut in the ensemble of Tokyo Theatre for Children’s production of Cinderella where my mother played the Stepmother and my father was also in the ensemble. Upon moving back to the U.S. in the eighth grade, I started performing in my school’s shows in Northport, NY. By the end of my junior year, I made the decision that I wanted to pursue a degree in theatre. After my freshman year in The Ohio State University’s Bachelor of Arts program, I decided she wanted to dive deeper and transferred to The University of Arizona where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre in December 2011. At the U of A, I had the privilege of playing my dream role of Anne Frank ...

She has helped me tremendously! We have a good time learning and laughing during my lessons with her. She had also helped me to stop listening to what others think about my voice and focus on believing in myself as I learn and progress. Risks l thanks

Desiree puts the fun in fundamentals!

I decided to take voice lessons for pleasure as a hobby to keep my mind off of the stresses of daily life. I had a lot of confidence issues to get over when I started taking lessons with Desiree; mainly because I didn't want to embarrass myself like those people I make fun of on American Idol. Her non-threatening teaching style has been the perfect fit for me...although she does raise her voice at me when I judge myself too harshly, but I won't count against her ;) My confidence has soared and I feel that I'm a much bolder and more comfortable singer. I’m enjoying every minute of discovering my voice with Desiree. I've still got some work to do but I'm confident she'll help me reach my goals.

Voices are a Gift

Desiree has helped my sister and I develop our vocal skills and work to our full potential. She has also helped us realize that our voices are a gift and we need to treasure them. Desiree has strengthened our confidence in signing in front of people as well as signing in general. She is more than just a teacher she is a role model and a person we feel we can count on.

I started working with Jen a little over two months ago, and in those two months I have learned more about the music business than I have in my entire life. Ms. Jen works hard to make sure her students get the most out of every lesson. She is a genuine person with a huge heart and dedication to the music field. In every lesson, Ms. Jen warms us up well by working on breathing techniques. We are always laughing and having a ball, there is never a dull moment with Ms. Jen! I would recommend Jen to anyone interested in taking lessons. She is an inspiration to all of her students, and the best teacher I have ever had!

Jen is a great teacher who really cares about her students and whether they are learning. I came to her studio to learn how to sing for fun, and it was very helpful! She lets the student's goals guide the instruction, rather than sticking to a rigid curriculum. Jen also considers the student's needs and understanding carefully, making sure to explain things in a different way if needed.

I worked with Jen for just over a year and I have to say, not only did I learn a lot about music theory and breathing, but I gained such a great mentor and friend. I left Pittsburgh when I graduated and Jen is still there willing to answer questions about anything related to singing. In the year that I worked with her I: performed in three studio performances, auditioned and got the part of Mary Sunshine in my college's production of Chicago, and made it to the semi-finals of the Classical Singer's Competition. Without Jen, I wouldn't have been able to do any of that. I am more confident than ever and I'm still singing!
