Teaching since:

I am a professional singer. Although I have studied the bel canto technique in my university studies, I have taught various genres using varied techniques to suit the student. I have performed in operas, classical song recitals in different languages, jazz, pop, and musical theater. I'm currently finishing my doctoral document to complete my doctor of musical arts degree in voice. I have sung on many stages in the country, Mexico and Spain as an opera singer, vocal soloist and as a chamber singer. My goal as a teacher is to share my knowledge so students can practice effectively on their own. I also wish for students to become life-long learners. My secondary degree and field experience is in elementary education. I'm currently a university teacher in voice and theory in the Pittsburgh area.

Great experience for my daughters first lesson. Cindy made us feel like we’ve known her for years. Mila is excited for her next lesson, already singing the days of the week in Spanish after 2 days. Thanks again

Cynthia is going to be a great teacher. She made me feel comfortable right from the start. I am really looking forward to my next lesson.

I grew so much a singer while I was taking Cindy's classes. She is absolutely amazing! It was really awesome to be able to train songs in English and Spanish.

My technique majorly improved under her instruction. My voice never felt so strong.
