I also have a private practice at my residence in Valley Glen where I have both produced, coached and recorded many new and known artists.

I have trained music at the following schools: Kester Magnet Elementary, Riverside Elementary, Hesby Elementary, Serrenia Elementary, Los Feliz Arts Charter School. I also have a private practice at my residence in Valley Glen where I have both produced, coached and recorded many new and known artists.

My music program is very simple and incorporates student interaction. I find that many new musicians are able to play multiple instruments, and I encourage this. However, it becomes quickly apparent when the student makes a connection with a particular instrument.

Vocally, the particular goals I strive to achieve with every client are to increase range and power, improve tonal quality, ensure pitch accuracy, eliminate vocal problems that could lead to injury, instill confidence, and create a sense of ease in singing. I love to help develop and nurture new talent, to hear a song being sung with emotion and spirit and ability.

Vocal and music training is not meant to be boring. If all you sing are exercises, then ask yourself, "Where are you going to sing these exercises?" I have yet to attend a concert consisting of vocal exercises. Same goes for music instruction: it has to be fun for both the child or adult and the teacher.

Vocal sessions are recorded on CD or flash drive. This enables the singer to have practice material to review at home after the session. All sessions are individually noted as to progress and homework studies. A typical session begins with vocal exercises and warm up, followed by a practical application of these exercises to the client’s personal song selections. I find it extremely important for the singer to begin working on actual songs in the very first lesson.

I guarantee results on the very first lesson, you will experience a noticeable difference in your ability to sing immediately.
