Overview

I am a graduate of classical voice and music history at California State University, Long Beach. I have four years of training in classical voice and participation as an ensemble singer for concert choirs, chamber ensembles and vocal jazz. While my main area of singing is in the classical styles, I enjoy singing and learning in the pop and jazz genres in my spare time, as well. I am open to learning and teaching all styles of music. My education in musicology and ethnomusicology has opened me up to the various musical styles around the world which I find captivating, and would love to be involved in educating others about them.

My main goal is to help cultivate and develop healthy singing in any style--helping vocalists understand how to use their voice, find "their" voice and become a well-rounded musician is what I love doing.

I am interested in teaching students who like to sing for a hobby, who are looking for some directed training to improve their voice, as well as students who are looking for training to develop their voice in order to pursue a career or education path in singing.
