Hi! My name is Ruxandra, I am a professional opera singer, songwriter and I am a self taught acrylic painter. 😃
I come from a family of artists, I have a wonderful husband who is also a musician, he is a very good drummer and songwriter.
I am a loving and fun person to work with and I do not allow laziness.
I teach Classical singing- females only, and Contemporary singing( for male and female).
Classical singing and Contemporary singing takes a lot of discipline, patience, focus and a lot of hard work.
The typical objectives are to uncover, release and develop students’ unique singing voice, to develop and refine awareness skills, vocal techniques, breathing technique and performance skills that they can take away with them and apply to a lifetime of healthy, productive and enjoyable singing.
We are also going to cover everything you need to know about a good vocal health and how to maintain your voice in "tip-top" shape. 👍

I am excited to meet you!
