Hello there, curious musician to be!
I am a competitive individual and I like to challenge and to be challenged. I started playing violin when I was 10 and have performed with several Honors Orchestras, mariachis, as well as some professional groups. My Junior and Senior year of high school I was honored to be Concertmaster.
I began my classical vocal training at San Diego State University in Spring of 2012. I was trained as a Soprano and an Alto because of my coachability, and versatility. Since then I have worked with several talented and dynamic directors throughout my training experience. I have attended the annual San Diego Summer Choral Festival, as well as the Conducting Workshop under the direction of Dr. Patrick Walders, which consisted of an intensive choral training weekend followed by performances. I am also part of a growing professional choir in San Diego called Pro Arte Voices, which debuted its first CD in December '14 (!!). Lastly, I am a strong advocate for the arts in our community and am very proud to be a teacher. Most recently, I have started developing a choir program for the youth at a local church. In the near future I have plans of developing a music program for underprivileged youth, which would incorporate choir, and orchestra. I continue to work on myself so that I can always give my best to my students, and teach them something new. I look forward to making music with you, or your little one soon :)
I lead the Alto section at this parish. We also have a concert series where the section leaders perform some lovely pieces once a month.
I fill in for other choir section leaders at various churches in the San Diego area, on an as needed basis.
I perform with a professional Chamber ensemble several times a year.
I sing and play traditional Mexican tunes with a mariachi group for events.
I lead the Alto section and helped them improve on Gregorian Chant as well as Polyphonic pieces.
