She's the reason why I truly do not give up on singing, in addition to her encouragements to strive for more then my personal best. She knows how to teach vocal techniques and is far more specialized then any person to help achieve the best results.Through many personal lessons and workshops my voice started to improve tremendously. She had many professional experiences of her own, along with getting her students to the best places. For the younger students, her rate on getting in to the performing schools are extremely high. Once you are in she will be able to help with many things school related such as exams and etc. For the older students she can definitely help with preparation for college auditions.
