I have sung for as long as I could speak! I hail from a family of recording artists and have graced the stage since the age of 4. During high school, I learned to read music and took piano lessons. This peaked my interest in wanting to learn the fundamentals of music so I decided to major in it in college. I then went on to Xavier University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While at Xavier I participated in many productions. I also received a Xavier University Music Scholarship for four years. I have noted my experience in detail: Xavier University of Louisiana-Senior Recital; Xavier University Student Recital – “Opera under the Stars”, April 2008; Xavier University Concert Choir Midwest Tour – Soloist for “Amazing Grace”, April 2008; Xavier University of Louisiana ...

As a musician and composer, I must claim to be proficient at one instrument. That instrument has always been my voice. I am classically trained for operatic vocal technique. But I am equally able as a pop, blues, country, and Broadway singer.
I have experience singing in main operatic roles and in choruses.
I just love teaching. People say I have a knack for it. Students sometimes come to me with doubts that they'll ever be able to learn the material. They soon learn they can. I am very laid back. I believe frustration has no place in academia. Encouragement, motivation, and plain old-fashioned love for students has taken me a long way in my career. That said, I am one to push students to shoot for the stars. They will feel challenged, but their hard work helps them overcome and improve. Go TakeLessons!
