Subjects Taught Singing, Violin, Broadway Singing, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Viola
My two greatest passions are music and teaching, so teaching music comes very naturally to me. I am classically trained musician, having played violin for 18 years, viola for 10 years, piano for 8 years, guitar for 3 years and singing for as long as I can remember. I currently sing with the Los Angeles Master Chorale and other notable choirs in the Los Angeles area, while maintaining a humble studio of music students. In addition to experience as a performer of both opera and musical theater, I write and record my own music in a variety of genres (mainly blues/folk/soul). When I was 12 years old I was diagnosed with a nodule (a polyp of tissue on the vocal cords that prevents them from closing completely, caused by vocal strain) and have trained it away simply by learning to sing correctly. Having passed through this experience I am very aware of vocal health, and emphasize it with all my students.
