*** Lesson Details ***
I am interested in the needs of each individual student. I aim to prepare each student to be able to fluently read and understand musical concepts during the course of study. Students can explore classical and popular genres, as well as participate in recitals to help improve their understanding and appreciation of music.

*** Specialties ***
For beginning students, I emphasize the importance of rhythmic comprehension, correct technique and theoretical understanding as an important musical foundation. Depending on the students' level and interests, I then customize my lesson plan and assignments to their specific needs.

Singing lessons

Jina made Kylie feel comfortable during lessons and allowed her to participate in one of her recitals. I feel the lessons taught her how to vocalize and breathe properly and help bring her out of her shell as she is normally kinda shy in a crowd and new people in general.
Thank you Jina, it was a pleasure. :) We look forward to seeing you after Summer.
