Hello wonderful future students! My name is Maya, I am currently in my junior year of my music education degree and I have a passion for music. I started singing when I was about 4 years old, but I didn't start taking professional lessons until I was around the age of 12. I started with piano and voice lessons and my love for music just took off. What I want to provide for my students is the same kind of nurturing of this passion that my former and current music instructors did for me. It doesn't matter what you do, or if you're good or bad at it. It matters that you're passionate about it. If you're passionate about music, then I can guarantee you that you will succeed in my studio and we will have a great time.

A little bit about me. I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona and then moved to Dearborn, Michigan when I was 19 years old. At age 13, I joined my first rock band and played only 2 shows with them, one of them being my own birthday party. For the next year and a half I sang for 3 different heavy rock bands. Coming up on my senior year of high school I joined a band and we toured the west coast together until I decided to focus on my classical and musical theater vocal career. I started my Music Therapy degree at Arizona State University in the fall of 2015 and switched my major to Music Education in the spring of 2016. Since moving to Michigan, I am currently planning on attending the University of Michigan to complete my degree as a Music Educator.

I have a great background in many musical styles such as musical theatre (Broadway), classical, opera, rock, alternative, pop, jazz, etc. Anything that you want to accomplish, we can do with passion and with drive. I have performed with many different groups such as choirs, orchestras, bands, rock bands, and many more that any style you'd like to cover, we can find a way to do it correctly and educationally. I want to give you the tools that you need to further your music career.

I like to keep my lessons fun, laid-back, and easy-going because stress likes to do funny things with out minds. In my studio we will accomplish so much and I can't wait to start our journey together!

First person in this position! It was amazing working with elementary school students who have never done drama before and giving them a musical theatre experience. Unfortunately I moved to Michigan, therefore I had to pass the position on to someone else.
