I began singing at very young age and have never stopped : ) I began teaching music and voice while in college and have been doing so ever since! I'm classically-trained in voice and have a versatile sound and style. I help my students to find their voice and bring it out to the people who are waiting to hear it! We always have fun through learning. I incorporate the basic fundamentals of music theory into my classes as well. I believe it's important and fun!
