I have been teaching voice and piano for over a year, and I also tutor German. I love teaching students of all ages, from 3 to 93, and I always look forward to meeting new students. I double majored in college, earning a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and a Bachelor of Arts in German. As part of my German degree, I spent six months in Germany and Austria, honing my language skills, even taking courses at the University of Vienna. At the University of Redlands School of Music I sang in several recitals and I performed two major roles in fully staged operas. Now as a professional musician I have sing with Independent Opera Company, Center Stage Opera, Guild Opera Company, and Ventura County Gilbert and Sullivan Repertoire Company. I feel comfortable teaching all styles of singing, as they all require the same fundamental techniques.

While my specialty is classical vocal technique, I have also played piano since I was seven years old. I love teaching piano, especially to beginners because the fundamentals are so important.

Looking forward to meeting you and getting started on a musical journey!
