About Ms. Patino F.

Hello, I am Ms. Patino originally from Colombia, South America.
Spanish is my mother tongue.
All my life, I have been studied and practice this language.
From an early age, I start to write plays, poems, articles, and essays. Read is one of my passions.
I am a musician.
I hold a BM in Music Education, Voice Performance, and Pedagogy from Universidad del Valle.
Everyone can acquire a new language if approached correctly.
It is the same about a musical instrument or singing.

Be amazed, curiosity and fun are key ingredients to learn anything at any age in life.

Whether it be to learn Spanish, voice, piano, guitar, or English, I will be happy to team up with you.

I like to work one-on-one with my students creating a team and program that will lead each one of them to achieve their goals.

Since each student is different I like to create and select the material for each student's needs.

Sometimes I suggest some books but I try to keep my students from spending too much money.

My Bio:
Ms. Patino performed Salsa, Soft Rock, and Traditional Latin Music in the large concert venues, stadiums, and coliseums of South America. With the influence of her father, Guillermo Patiño-Valencia his international operatic and concert career, Ms. Patiño revealed her talent for the operatic stage singing in the Coloratura Soprano repertoire in roles as Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto and the title role in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor.

Ms. Patiño holds a BM and Artists degree in Vocal Performance and Music Education from the Universidad del Valle of Cali, Colombia – South America.

Ms. Patino has been working for more than 20 years on Auditive-synchronization and neuro chronaxia technique that helps to sing in tune and with confidence.

"If you can talk you can sing. I will show you how..." Ms. Patino

Pattricia has been great with my daughter. This is my daughter’s first time learning piano, and Pattricia makes it fun and is so encouraging. She takes a genuine interest in my daughter as a person, not just as a student. My daughter is 9 and has really enjoyed learning how to play. Pattricia gives her a combination of lessons she can do at her current level as well as stretching her skills. but she always reminds my daughter to have fun while she learns. We couldn’t ask for a better teacher for her first time experience! Thank you, Pattricia!!

I like Pattricia's teaching methods. She focuses on your needs and provides valuable information. She modifies the lessons to maximize the learning for the student. She moves at the students pace making sure that they are understanding what they are learning and doesn't move so fast that you get lost. Wonderful personality. She makes learning a language fun!!

Pattricia is great explaining what areas I need help in, how to make corrections, how the things I learn will affect my singing, and on and on. Trust her to pay great attention to you and give specific help for you. Very helpful, very educated!

Patricia was an excellent teacher! Very knowledgeable and patient. It was my first time taking on the piano and she was very helpful in every step. I felt I learned a lot during our lessons and she would also give you great tips on how to practice on your own, which was key for me. She was also very flexible, which I appreciated as work got in the way of our scheduled times on occasion. Highly recommend!!! You will not be disappointed.

She is such a delight. I love that she recognized that I have knowledge of Spanish vocabulary. So she didn't make me start with the basics.

Pattricia is an amazing teacher. She is patient and calm, and I never feel nervous to speak spanish with her. It's like talking to an old friend! She is also excellent at adapting the class to your needs - we never memorize lists, but we do share recipes, read books, watch movies, talk about current events, and laugh a lot!

Pattricia is a wonderful Spanish teacher. She has so many great recommendations and is helping our family learn to speak Spanish. She also makes Spanish so much fun to learn. I am so happy that we found Pattricia.

My piano lessons with Pattricia have far exceeded any expectations I had. She is warm, caring, patient and fun. Pattricia is also a very talented pianist. I would totally recommend Pattricia.

Pattricia is really helping me to learn Spanish by focusing on what I will use my Spanish for. I know what I’m learning will be put to good use. Conversing is the hardest thing for me to do, but Pattricia has us only speak in Spanish which really helps me work on conversation.

Pattriccia Patino is a wonderful Teacher !
I found her knowledgeable of a multitude of Music and her training was
very professional giving great help for Style and Technique.
Her background in Classic Vocal Training was extremely helpful in
overcoming bad habits and her vocal training is great whether I sing

First lesson was great! . Pattricia is very upbeat and positive.... the first lesson was geared to see where I was with my Spanish.. now we will work on my pronunciations and weak areas. We are only allowed to speak spanish during the lesson... challenging!! I am looking forward to the next one.

Pattricia is very professional. She also cares dearly for her students. I've grown so much with her. She has helped me improve my vocals, as well as my stage presence.
