Hello, my name is Carrisa, but you can call me Chrissy. I am a professional singer, songwriter, actress, and teaching artist. I have been singing all my life. I began singing in my mother’s church as a child. I studied music and theatre at Missouri Southern State University in 2004. I have been working with children ages 4-18 since 2001. I currently perform around Portland singing Jazz, R & B, Soul, and Pop.
As a teaching artist, we create arts intergrated lesson plans for all ages with an emphasis on health & wellness, facilitate lessons that teach SEL skills, and work with community members to foster social cohesion through theatre.
This certificate is awarded to vocal teachers who complete a 40 hour comprehensive vocal pedagogy course including vocal technique for all styles of singing- classical to contemporary.
