Overview

When music is done right,it transcends language and words. That is one of my favorite quotes. Being able to express yourself through singing is like a religious experience if done right. My passion for music goes beyond the technical aspect, but rather the personal experience, and the personal connection. It is like taking listeners on a journey without visuals but just a melody. That is what I try to instill in my students.

I have a background in opera and gospel singing. I have a degree in music. I also taught children's choir at a public school as well at a church. My goal is to teach students how to maintain and strengthen their voices metaphorically and physically. I have a set lesson plan for students that are offered weekly to students that will help with pitch, rhythm and breathing. Along with the weekly lessons, I teach basic music theory as well as some music history to students. Students will learn songs from a set list of songs and will work on their own songs.

· Vocal Training · In studio Monika was a pure joy to meet. We took the time in my first lesson to talk about my goals and share our expectation for the class. She is very knowledgeable and open. I left excited and am eager to see how our time together will unfold.

· Gospel Singing · In studio She teaches you in such a caring but yet a professional way. It is a pleasure and a privilege to seat under this young lady and have her pour into my life. After each class, I feel a lot more stronger and bolder knowing that I can sing no matter what.

· Gospel Singing · In studio Monika is a very professional instructor; she has the passion for teaching voice lessons. She is well versed in her craft. Her confidence and knowledge of music is amazing. I didn't have the confidence in singing and she is helping me to become a better singer and worshiper.
