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.
Monika is great. She not only teaches you singing and vocal technique she also helps you find your voice, gain confidence and own your power. She is an encourager, motivator and great vocalist.
Monica is very personable and she loves to bring out the best in her students. I’m glad I chose Monica J
Monika is such a talented singer and a truly warm and encouraging vocal instructor. Her approach to singing is much deeper than technical proficiency. It is about finding the heart and emotion within the song and discovering your unique voice to carry it. As someone who has taken vocal lessons before, I really appreciate Monika’s approach of encouraging her students to find their own voice rather than to sound like another. I highly recommend her as a vocal coach, for anyone who want to strengthen their voice and develop their confidence as a singer.+ Read More
Well, it's been 3 lessons thus far and the experience is getting better and better. She is so knowledgeable and I already see improvement. The breathing techniques she has been teaching me is working as well as the warm up exercises. I'm learning so much. I can already hold my notes longer and sound much better and my confidence is building. Each week I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas because I can't wait for the next lesson.+ Read More
I really enjoyed my first session with Monika. We spend time getting to know each other and I learned a lot from her so quickly. She seems to be very knowledgeable. I'm a very shy and nervous person when it comes to singing and she made me feel so comfortable. Looking forward to my future sessions.+ Read More
Awesome experience, the vocal exercises are a freat gelp for my daughter. My daughtet love her. She has patience with children . My daughter Grace has improve a great deal.
Monika is the best! She's a very patient and encouraging teacher who knows how to critique when necessary. If you're looking for a kind environment to grow in, without the prospect of judgement, she is the place to go.
Ive been training with Monika since the summer and my voice has strengthened tremendously ! Im much more confident about singing and I look forward to every class because every class is an opportunity to grow as a vocalist . Thank you Monika !
Very nice introduction to the course , we took our time and focused on where I need help vocally and Monika even gave me some tips to follow on my spare time :)

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.
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.
Very awesome and knowledgeable
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.+ Read More
