I graduated from the University of South Florida where I received my BA in Theatre performance & Communication with a minor in Dance. In 2011 I finished studying Music Recording at St. Petersburg College, where I focused on Singing/Songwriting. I trained at NYU with the Aquila acting company in classical theatre, and I also trained with TVI Acting studios in Los Angeles in Film and television.

My Music and Performance experience started when I was 6 singing in choir, school productions, and taking piano lessons. I continued on with group ensembles, musical theatre shows and later on touring with the Spanish Lyric Theatre in Both English and Spanish in throughout Florida after college. I started working with various agencies in florida and became SAG eligible through working on a featured role as a dancer on the movie "From Justin to Kelly" filmed in Miami. Being part of the Actor's Studio at the University of South Florida created the foundation for me to then move to New York and study with the Aquila Classical Theatre company through NYU, Dance with the New Amsterdam Studio in am off-off Broadway dance production, and then move to LA to train with TVI Acting Studios. While In Los Angeles I signed with Avalon Artists Talent Agency and worked as an actress and model for various print jobs and commercials.

In 2007 I returned to Florida and spent the next few years working with various Talent Agencies on commercials, Industrials, print jobs, HSN projects, theatre shows, short films, and started to focus on Music, songwriting and recording. I returned to school and attended ST. Petersburg college MIRA Program (Music Industry Recording Arts) where I focused on Songwriting Performance and trained in voice, theory, songwriting, recording, and formed a duo called "The Rose and Zeb Duo." We Co-wrote together and recorded our first Demo Cd "Let Go" which was feature at the CD release event At the Yoga Village Studio in Clearwater, FL. We performed at local events throughout the area with our music.

Now I am continuing the process of Songwriting on my own for my next CD and developing other creative projects which I enjoy teaching others including art projects, cooking, baking, creating beauty products, and tutoring. I am quite diverse in the skills that I have obtained and I take a great interest in helping you as the artist develop your own style as well. I wish you luck in your journey!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like the combination of relaxed and goal oriented. I like to get to know my students and learn about about expectations and goals they have for themselves. Then I set up a plan that will help them achieve their goals and get them closer to what they want from their lessons. I take into consideration their interest, style, and help them to find their unique learning style.

I do have some guidelines for parents and students. If the student is a minor, I ask that the parent be in the house for the lesson. I also ask that the lesson be performed in the Living room or Music Space.
