I started taking music lessons at the age of 9. I began playing in the church and then I taught lessons in my home at the age of 16. I went on to attend and graduate from Christian Heritage College (now called San Diego Christian College) with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Business. I am now the Director of the Music Department at San Diego Young Artists Music Academy. I direct two youth and children choirs, a male chorus and a great adult choir. I also sing with the Voices of Prayze who travel with Jason Mraz from time to time. As a singer, pianist ,organist and as a teacher, I specialize in Gospel piano & vocal technique and repertoire. I also have a great deal of experience in Pop, R&B, and Classical so I am able to help students excel in these genres as well. *** Lesson Details *** As your private teacher, I can promise you a very soulful and rewarding experience – having fun is part of my lesson plan. My goal for each student is to build confidence through knowledge and experience. I will encourage each student to reach into their spirit and bring out what is already inside of them through the type of music that brings them happiness. After 3- 6 months of lessons from me a pianist or singer will be able to know beginning concepts, play songs of their choice by ear and note read simple songs also. Singers will know beginning vocal exercises, be able to project their voice, and sing high and low notes accurately to songs according to their ability. *** Studio Equipment *** Piano Mic and Karaoke Machine A Stage to Practice Performance Technique I DO NOT HAVE AN ORGAN TO TEACH ON AT MY HOME STUDIO.

Judy's awesome. She's always encouraging and challenges me to reach my goals.
I lost my voice a couple months and I thought it was permanent or at least that I had damage to voice that could not be repaired. Judy helped me gain confidence in singing my favorite songs again and has given me the skills I need to start auditioning again. She has helped me work on basic skills and enhance my vocal technique. I owe all of my success to her coaching!
Amazing first lesson. I learned so much! Honestly the best voice lesson I've ever had :-D
