My name is Kristen! I am an instructor in the San Diego area. I work from my home studio with students of all ages.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Voice Primary, Piano Secondary. I also have obtained my Masters in Music Education from Boston University. I have also received my credential for elementary education and music education.


***Music Students***
I teach students not only how to sing, but also how to perform. This will benefit all students who are looking to audition for a musical, or are interested in performing in front of an audience.

I also teach students how to read music and understand basic music theory. This will benefit students who want to further their musical knowledge.

I believe that it is important for music students to learn how to be true musicians. For this reason I have created a student centered curriculum that includes a variety of learning objectives including: vocal and breathing technique, improvisation, listening and interpreting, student song selection, performance, music theory, and community musical involvement.

All students who work with me have their own personalized lesson plans. Together we work towards achieving the student's individual goals. I teach my students the skills to become successful.

***Elementary Multi Subject Tutoring***

I am credentialed to teach students K-6 with an elementary multi subject credential.

All students who work with me have their own personalized lesson plans. Together we work towards achieving the student's individual goals. I teach my students the skills to become successful.

Classical Voice · In studio

This lesson was for my 15 yo daughter. Kristen was very organized and got right to work discovering my daughter's range, teaching her how to breathe properly, showing her warm-up exercises and singing a few songs they will be working on together. It was a very productive session and Kristen was very interested in keeping the lesson fun as well. A good balance of structure and play that challenges the student while keeping her engaged and eager to practice on her own. Great first lesson, and my daughter is looking forward to the next one!

Singing · In studio

Kristen is SO helpful. I've only taken a few classes so far and my vocal abilities and confidence behind a microphone have improved drastically. I started singing late -- at age 27 -- and without much instruction so it has been a difficult process on a steep learning curve so far (the past two years). Kristen punts me farther up that curve every time we meet :).

She is structured but not rigid, super knowledgeable and very professional. Highly recommend her!

Kristen is very patient & is able to meet the client where she is at. She sometimes has difficulty explaining things in 7yo language, but the message eventually gets through-just takes a little longer. :)
