I am a musician and teacher. I sing, play piano, and write and arrange various styles of music. I sing in an acappella group, Frequency, a community choir, Long Beach Camerata Singers, my own jazz trio, and some local theatre, etc. I also TEACH voice and piano at Los Angeles Harbor College, Cal Poly Pomona, Bellflower Community Center, and privately from my home in Bellflower. I have 14 years of experience teaching voice and piano. I hold a Bachelors degree in music education (cum laude) and a Master's of Music in vocal performance (both from Cal State Long Beach, Bob Cole Conservatory). I teach all styles of singing, from jazz to opera. I am an extremely versatile musician and personally perform classical, jazz, musical theatre, pop, gospel, choral, a cappella, and contemporary Christian styles. Usually, vocal teachers either approach teaching singing from a bel canto, primarily operatic approach and are quite unfamiliar with contemporary styles OR they are rather uneducated about the technical aspects of the vocal pedagogy and attempt to coach the novice "pop" singer using rather unhealthy techniques. I am somewhat unique in my approach to the voice, utilizing BOTH bel canto, proven healthy techniques AND still understanding how to modify these techniques to suit many contemporary styles of singing. I am confident that I can help you improve your singing!
I've been teaching piano for 14 years privately, have been playing piano since age 6, and have accompanied choirs and individuals for many years. I tested out of piano in college. I am quite a competent pianist and am exceedingly capable of teaching beginning and intermediate students. Sight-reading is my best skill, but I also read chords/charts as well.
I have taught private voice for 14 years (both privately and at the college level ... class and private). I hold a master's degree in vocal performance and am qualified to teach all students and all genres. I sing everything from opera to jazz and everything in between. My youngest student is 7 and my oldest is 83. I have professional level students and beginners who are working on pitch.
