I was a talent manager from 1999 to 2002 and worked for casting directors CSA’s on films such as “61” HBO directed by Billy Crystal and “Hardball” with Keanu Reeves and Diane Lane by Paramount Pictures and more. I have toured, booked my own tours and my audition screenings for talent. I also owned my own management company called Matrix Talent who worked on the films and more, Michigan State University and also my own booking agency On The Run Entertainment who worked with WGRD and promotional agencies for talent.

About Aziza P.

My name is Aziza P. and I am a classically trained mezzo soprano singer from the Grand Rapids, MI area. I have been studying voice for over 18 years and teaching for 5 years. I am a Voice Instructor and Talent Coach!
I was your classic underdog who rose to the top by competing for grants in college for voice, performing in honors recitals, and I have toured the country as a singer. Now, I am teaching what I learned to my students. Currently I am on the Deans list and working towards my Bachelors in Music Studies at Berklee College of Music.
I have studied with opera sensation Nicholas Loren (has performed at the Metropolitan Opera), Dr. Stephen Barton (head of GRCC music department), Bill Bokhout (Opera Grand Rapids), Diane Koperski (GRCC voice program), Mary Zimmer (international performer and teacher; vocalist of White Empress), Melissa Ferlaak (international performer and teacher), Pamela Moore (Queensryche), and many more. I know the fundamentals of breath support, technique, and can teach many different styles. i am here to help you become the singer you dream of becoming. I also have an extensive theater and film background on top of being a former casting director's assistant. Therefore, I can also help you become not only a good singer but a good performer and educate you on the business.
