Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and learn a little more about me!

My love for music began very young with piano lessons at age five. I continued lessons throughout high-school and college, but during that time I also found my love for singing and musical theater. Upon discovering opera I felt like I found my calling and have been studying and performing classical voice ever since. The combination of romance languages and the amazing athletic feat that is operatic singing captivated me from the very first moment I saw it and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I hold a Bachelor of Music – Vocal Performance degree from San Jose State University, and since graduating I have performed with Opera San Jose, Symphony Silicon Valley, and will be seen in productions with Celestial Opera Company & Independent Opera Company this year.

Although my main pursuit is classical performance, I absolutely love to teach all styles and see the joy of music grow in my students. I’ve been teaching voice and piano since 2009 (7 years) and with my solid piano, musical theater, and classical background I offer my students the best of both worlds.

Want to learn how to play your favorite pop song? Mozart’s “Fur Elise”? Maybe you’re a closet Pavarotti fan and have a yearning to hit those stratosphere-high notes, or maybe you just love to sing and want someone’s encouraging ear. No matter what your goal is I will make it my mission to help you attain it!

That's pretty much the gist about me and my teaching, but if you'd like to know what your lesson might look like feel free to ask me! I usually respond within a day.

Opera San Jose

While completing my degree at SJSU I performed with Opera San Jose as much as possible. I sang in the chorus for Verdi's "La Traviata", Verdi's "Il Trovatore", Verdi's "Falstaff", and Puccini's "Madama Butterfly". During that time I was also asked to understudy principal roles and got a chance to sing some small roles on the big stage!

Soli was so excited to get started and Ms. Chloe did not disappoint. She loves her teacher and loves playing the piano. She took great pride in showing her dad and me what she learned in the first lesson.

Thank you, Ms. Chloe. We will see you next week.

Chloe is great! I would recommend her to anyone of any age or skill level. I presented to her what I wanted to achieve on my first lesson. Chloe created a syllabus catered to achieving my personal goals. She explains the lessons so they are easier to learn and in a creative way so I obtain the information. The lessons are followed by a fun weekly assignment that allows me a unique way to practice for the following week's lesson. Chloe is patient but effective! I take in home lessons that are so convenient with my busy schedule and at an affordable price!

Amazing! I’m primarily a dancer/actor and was really tired of always getting cast in the chorus in shows. I wanted to strengthen my voice so that I could play the leads I always wanted to, and Chloe really helped me find the right songs to fit my range & style. She immediately was able to tell that I was singing in the wrong range (I had no idea), and helped me develop my MT belt.

Izzie loves her lessons with Chloe. She is equally great at teaching piano and voice (even though Bella prefers to sing). She helped Izzie prepare for her part in the school show (Liesl in the Sound of Music). She makes singing very fun, and I've noticed great improvements in Bella's voice and piano playing.

Chloe taught our two young boys piano lessons and they had a great time. My youngest especially loved his lessons and asks all the time if Teacher Chloe will move back. Very dependable and a great teacher over all.

This was our 11 year-old daughter's first voice lesson and Chloe managed to make her extremely comfortable, bring out her best efforts, and teach her fantastic tips and tricks in the first session.

Chloe has worked out better than we had hoped or expected. She is teaching our mid-elementary aged children and they love her. The children are excited about the lessons, look forward to seeing her, and they enjoy practicing their lessons. If you want a great teacher that can motivate in a positive manner I would suggest Chloe.
