I started my formal music education at just three years old. That early education was invaluable in training my musical ear, and I now have excellent pitch. I started my extensive training in vocal performance at the age of 8, and have been trained in classical, opera, and musical theater in both legit and belt/mix. I have performed in over 30 musical theater productions and two operatic productions. Some of my favorite credits include La Carlotta (Phantom of the Opera), Eliza (My Fair Lady), Mrs. Potts and The Wardrobe (Beauty and the Beast), The Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute), and Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte).
As a youth, I performed with the Utah Children’s Choir and Pleasant Grove Jr. High’s choir. I then went on to perform with the award-winning Pleasant Grove Chamber Choir while in High School, and the BYU Women’s Chorus in college. I competed in NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) from 2008-2014 and placed each year in both Classical and Musical Theater Legit. In 2013, I competed in the Classical Singer Competition in Boston and placed in the top 10 in the nation. In 2011, I was asked to perform in the Tour of American Young Artists to China. I performed in Beijing, as well as several outlying Chinese cities.
As well as singing, Mikayla is an accomplished flutist, and enjoys playing the piano. She is very artistic and loves to draw, sew and craft during her free time. She played Volleyball in high school, was on the swim team, and loves horseback riding.
I have an outgoing personality, and am excellent at helping others feel comfortable. It is my goal to not only help you learn to sing, but also to feel comfortable singing and performing. I absolutely love singing and performing myself, and I am excited to help you reach your musical potential!
