Teaching since:
February 2014

I'm an operatic soprano and and have an MM in Vocal Performance at the University of Minnesota, with a BM in Vocal Performance from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. In addition to experience teaching vocal technique, I have experience with English, French, Italian and German diction, and many musical styles. Pop, musical theater, you name it! It's all good. :)

I recently became TEFL-certified and have begun tutoring English as a second language as well. I try to make my lessons as fun as possible, and will organize the lessons according to your wants, needs, experience, and age!

Singing lessons typically start with a short physical and vocal warm-up, and then we move on to repertoire (selected by either myself or the student). As with English lessons, singing lessons are very student-focused--I will do my best to structure the lessons to work toward the goals we make together!

Absolutely love her! I took her classes for about 3 months and by the end of it I was comfortable with singing in my higher register. I've always been a belter and loved singing with my lower register, and she helped me break unhealthy habits and work on building good ones. She would never push you if she feels that is the limit for the day. I was also taking a for credit musical theatre class, and my vocal chords was exhausted at some point. She never pushed it, instead worked on my transitions instead of practicing to increase my range!

She's super friendly and awesome. She constantly motivates you to do better. I wanted to be able to sing higher and expand my range as a soprano. She helped me achieve that as well as helped me smoothen my singing especially in transition notes in my voice. All of course within the boundary of your voice. She'll never push you if you or her feels like that's the limit for today.
