I am an Oklahoma Native, New to the Albuquerque area, who loves music and loves to teach people to reach their potential. I studied Classical (operatic) voice for more than11 years, with Judith Haddon of the Metropolitan Opera, Chicago Musical Collage, Brenda Seward-Johnson, University of Central Oklahoma, and the late Marsha Henderson, University of Oklahoma. I was a student at the Oklahoma Arts Institute, 1997, 1998 Music major and Graduate of Classen School of Advanced Studies. I have been writing and singing gospel/inspirational music for about 18 years. I have performed in musicals, plays, recitals, and professional bookings from every genre of music. I currently serve as director for a youth performing arts camp where I have been a lead- instructor for the past 4 years.
*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to have a creative and educational experience especially tailored for their unique talents and abilities. Performance is my passion and I give 100 percent in every session. Over the years I have developed several techniques to empower students to overcome nervousness and stage- fright for auditions as well as performance. In six months you may not recognize the performer you have become; a more confident, professional, and effective artist. I firmly believe that anyone who wants to improve their abilities (through hard work) has the potential to become a great performer and touch the hearts of those who hear them.
