Welcome to Studio C! I graduated with honors from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, earning a Master of Music in Voice Performance. I also hold a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University. An emerging opera singer myself, I sing with Arizona Opera in Phoenix and Tucson.
I am available for private voice lessons serving the Phoenix metro area in historic Central Phoenix. Students learn to let go of inhibitions, release tensions, find a natural voice, and let that voice grow. Studying both classical and music theater repertoire and techniques, students develop effective breathing, a supported tone, and an agile voice suitable for any genre of singing. Motivated students who have a musical background are most successful in my studio.
I'm pretty down to earth and strive to create a fun and encouraging learning environment. Lessons include breathing exercises, a variety of vocalizes aimed to strengthen the voice, kinesthetic exercises, repertoire in multiple languages, musical expression, and sight singing.
Also a violinist, lover of music theater, jazz, opera, all things DIY and outdoors, I offer a well rounded approach to music lessons. Dedicated students always love to meet my pet chinchilla after lessons too!
