I am a vocalist, songwriter, pianist, and recording artist, currently tracking the debut EP for my synth-pop project Steel Maggie. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelors of Arts in Music, emphasis in Music Industry Studies, including voice and performance training. I have studied with/been coached by Martin Green from Citrus College, Dr. Susan Ali and Kendra Vuk from Cal Poly Pomona, and Aretha Scruggs.

I specialize in singing and teaching commercial styles, particularly pop, rock, and soul, but my approach to all commercial vocal practice is derived from classical traditions, mainly from the Swedish-Italian school of vocal production. No matter your skill level or background, you can be assured that you will receive a solid foundation in theory and technical skill through our lessons. Our sessions will take place in my home studio.

While I primarily teach voice, I have had extensive piano training, so if you are interested in playing the piano while singing, I will gladly help you develop that skill. As an avid songwriter, I can guide you through the songwriting process, show you how to write melodies that fit your range and vocal timbre, and give you tips to improve your songs.

in addition to helping you strengthen your voice and reach your vocal goals, I will teach you how to maintain your progress and prime yourself for continuous growth. You will never feel judged or put down in your lessons with me. I make it my mission to foster an environment of encouragement, self-esteem, and fun. However, like a personal trainer, I will hold you accountable, because I want to see you excel and stand out in your singing endeavors. I want you to thrive as a vocalist. I look forward to our first session together!

Hands down Moriah is an excellent teacher. She really helped me to understand the difference between singing from my throat and from my core. She reminded me to enjoy the process of learning a new song and to embrace my originality. I’ve studied with her for awhile and she’s shown me how to push myself and appreciate all the work that I’ve done, learning to trust myself.
