Learn & Grow

I'm an  upbeat, well-informed and practical teacher
who is adept in tailoring lessons to a particular
student's needs and interests.
My mission is to share my love & passion for
music and foster the same in my students no matter
what area they are focusing on. Music is a language
both metaphorically & practically- I love helping 
people communicate more concisely through music.
Whether it's vocal technique, refining songwriting skills,
preparing for university or college auditions, music theory
or repertoire development- I've got you covered!
