I work with sight-singing, interval recognition, harmonic analysis, and rhythmic exercises to strengthen ear training skills. As an arranger and composer, my ability to work through hearing music needs to be very sharp. Through transcription exercises from many different genres of music and body percussion exercises, I make ear training fun and exciting.
I teach private harp and voice lessons and also basic piano lessons. I began studying and playing music at age five and am very passionate about sharing my craft. I am enthusiastic and flexible to each individual student's needs.
I am a Classical, Jazz, and Folk singer. I have trained in bel canto technique and have performed in several operas in leading roles. I perform as a Jazz and Folk singer throughout the Los Angeles area. My vocal technique is based on relaxation and in my teaching, I strive to bring out and strengthen the unique quality of each student's voice.
