I have a broad formal education in areas related specifically to music and art. Since 2009, I am a voice teacher at French Lycée of Chicago. My first language is French. I hold a master's and a postmaster's degree in voice and "music in performance." I also possess extensive experience in diverse aspects of vocal training, opera, theater, and organizing musical event and concerts. I have been teaching singing for more than 20 years.
As a music lover and voice teacher, I feel that my responsibilities are to help young children, teenagers, and adults to discover their vocal and singing abilities in a natural and healthy manner. I also believe it is important to develop an appreciation for all styles of vocal music and to provide musical challenges, musical education, and performance opportunities.
Music for People was founded in 1988 by two visionary classical musicians, David Darling and Bonnie Insull. Music for People (MfP) is a nonprofit organization that promotes self-expression through music improvisation and the creative arts. MfP was founded on the belief that music is a natural creative expression available to everyone. All styles of music are celebrated, and players at all levels of experience are welcomed. We formed a network in 1986, became a nonprofit organization in 1988 and created a training program in 1991. MfP has over 100 certified graduates of our Musicianship and Leadership Program in the United States, Canada and Europe where they present programs for schools, community groups and businesses.
Founded in 1944, National Association of Teachers of Singing, Inc. (NATS) is the largest professional association of teachers of singing in the world with more than 7,000 members worldwide.
