I pass on what my teacher has taught me, while adding my own touch and personal experiences as a young singer. I sing and am a fan of varying genres so I really have an understanding of how to teach different types of singing. Styles I teach: Opera, Musical Theater, Pop, Rock, Belting, Mixing, kids, etc.
