I’m a conservatory trained musician, with years of professional experience. I enjoy the balance of my work as a singer/songwriter, performer, producer and vocal coach.
As your instructor, I will help you build a solid foundation in vocal technique through breathing and vocal exercises suited to your style and skill while tailoring to your personal goals. We will then apply the technique to songs.
For those interested in performance, I can help coach your performance skills to help you feel confident, about singing on stage!
For those interested in songwriting, my lesson plan can include learning foundations in songwriting to help you create your own original songs and melodies.

- Teaching since:
I am a professional singer, songwriter, pianist, recording artist and touring dancer. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Canada and now reside in Nashville, Tennessee. I received my formal musical training with an ARCT in Teaching with the Royal Conservatory of Music. My performing experience plus the formal training, has awarded me the versatility to make learning stress free and fun.
With my move to Nashville, I have been doing more songwriting, recording and producing for myself and other artists. I have an exclusive production contract with a top producer/engineer in Nashville, Grammy nominated Joseph Magee (Pitch Perfect, Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, Metallica, Whitney Houston, Etta James, Manhattan Transfer).
Unique for a young performing artist, I have enjoyed a balance in my life between science and the arts. At a very young age, I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Genetics from the University of British Columbia, while working as a professional Polynesian dancer crossing the Pacific for numerous performances.
In the beginning of my performance career, I appeared as a finalist in the Voice of the Philippines and Canadian Idol. I then performed on the road in China, Philippines, Japan, South Korea, UK, Ireland, Hawaii, Polynesia throughout Canada and the USA. In addition, my voice has appeared in TV & Film.
As an educator, I’m proud to say that many of my students have won the highest vocal awards at International Music Competitions, scored high on their music exams and progressed to acceptance at top music universities including NYU, Manhattan.
I teach my clients in my creative and comfortable home teaching studio in Nashville and online. I work with singers, pianists, songwriters and young producers of all ages and experience levels. The instruction is tailored to the individual musical goals of each student across many different genres.
I am a firm believer that great technique is essential to every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
Jerrica is always supportive in my lessons, guiding me with technique to become a better singer. Plus, she helps me as a vocal coach with great tips for many different styles.
She is an accomplished musician, so we always have great guide tracks to work with.
I met Jerrica through her chorale lesson and after hearing her sing an Ariana Grande song with such ease and brilliant technique, that moment I knew I had to start taking private lessons with her. I have been taking private vocal and songwriting lessons with Jerrica since December 2014 and it has been one of the most amazing experiences in music I’ve had. Jerrica has opened up so much possibilities for me by inspiring me through her music and supporting me through my musical journey. From her knowledge in music theory, piano skills, wide range in vocal styles to songwriting, she has helped me bring out the best in me. I began taking online lessons with her recently and it is definitely the same quality as our lessons that we’ve had in person. Jerrica taught me how be comfortable and confident in my ability and I am beyond grateful to have her as my coach.+ Read More
