I am a professional jazz vocalist, voice teacher, session singer, and bunny mom. I grew up around music and have loved to sing for as long as I can remember. I believe that exposure to music is the best way to learn how to do it. My parents are both singers so, naturally, we sang together around the house, in the car, etc.
I believe this exposure is what gave me the drive to become the performer and teacher I am today. Hands Down. I started out singing show tunes with my dad and classic rock/rock with my mom. I taught myself how to play guitar in middle school and this is when the solo-performer in me really started to develop. High school gave me choral music and folk/pop and college gave me jazz. Jazz is my main gig. I have been singing jazz music since 2010 and transformed into a full fledged jazzer along the way.
I believe that doing what you love to do can transform your whole outlook on life and work. I do what I love and that is all I can ask for.
I'm a female heavy metal singer and took 12 years off to raise a family so I needed help with pitch, power, control, strength, and development with my upper range and Lia delivered. What I was not expecting--and was pleasantly surprised by--was her additional instruction on adding more emotion through specialized breathing techniques and helping me move out of my comfort zone and attempt to tackle much tougher material. For someone so young in years, she is an old soul and has so much amazing experience to teach from. I've also seen her perform live covering extremely difficult songs and was blown away...even brought tears to my boyfriend's eyes when she sang his song request perfectly. I did not know her prior to my lessons. I met her randomly by emailing my local music store and inquired about lessons. She is worth every penny and I highly recommend her.+ Read More
Lia is fun, funny, smart, talented, great with kids, and overall amazing.
Lia is a really fantastic coach! She taught me amazing new techniques that dramatically improved my tone, and stretched my upper range by nearly 2 full tones. The lessons are fun and full go energy. she comes up with creative ways to help you understand how to sing better. I highly recommend her to anyone.+ Read More
Lia was the perfect teacher for both my daughter and I. I for one am super shy to sing in front of anyone but really wanted to change that. In just one session with Lia, I was singing with her and feeling more confident! After many sessions I really learned a lot and have even started singing in front of friends and family. My daughter loved taking lessons with Lia and the techniques we learned in terms of controlling our breathing etc were invaluable. She is so friendly and competent, I would definitely recommend Lia for voice lessons.+ Read More
Lia is vocal genius to begin with so of course I sought her out for lessons. I already enjoying singing but wanted to discover my potential with lessons as I've never really taken them before. In just a short amount oftime with her advice and guidance I already can hear a difference and feel a better tone coming out. Plus she's very kind, supportive, and easy going.+ Read More
I have shared many lessons with Lia this past year while improving my vocal training. She is wonderful to work with. She gives great direction while helping you to achieve your goals. Highly Recommended.
