I have spent my entire life developing my skills as a singer, songwriter, and classical musician. Over the years, I have been awarded several recognitions regionally as a classical vocalist, and French Hornist. I have since ranged further into vocal technique, both classical AND contemporary style, as well as piano and guitar fundamentals. I also enjoy performing and teaching fingerstyle guitar(if you don't know what that is, I would 10/10 recommend looking it up on youtube.:) I am currently attending the BYU School of Music in Provo, Utah, and recently returned from spending 18 months in Thailand as a missionary. I love preparing and eating Thai food, as well as developing my relationships with natives through my thai language skills. When I consider the different influences and instructors who have MOST impacted my life, I remember their genuine authenticity and ability to lighten even the most stressful of situations. As your qualified instructor, I will do my best to not only help you develop fundamentally and technically in your desired area, but also help you clearly see yourself as who you can become. THIS IS ABOUT YOU! LET'S DO THIS! :)Show More
She was very helpful and easy to work with. Looking forward to the rest of my Thai lessons!
Makenzie is a great teacher. My girls love the way she taught and really enjoyed it!
I had Makenzie teach my son acoustic guitar. She was great, very well prepared, and an amazing instructor. My son loved going to lessons with her.
