I am a classically trained vocalist with an extensive background in vocal arts and operatic studies. I attended Long Island University, Brooklyn for a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Music and Temple University for a Master of Music in Voice Performance. Aside from my formal education, my personal interests are more geared toward contemporary genres including blues, jazz, soul, funk, disco, and hip-hop.

There are two music collectives of which I am a recurring member. I've continuously appeared in classical recitals and benefit concerts with the Lyric Artist of New York since 2018. I also co-produced and performed a virtual concert with El Can Collective in 2021, showcasing a diverse array of ballads, showtunes, and pop songs in English and Spanish.

I believe that my versatility as a performer and ever-learning student of music enables me to make teaching music a fun, approachable experience no matter what interests my students may have. As a teacher, my priority is to build vocal skills and confident musicianship independently of genre, to strengthen music theory knowledge, to instill proper breathing technique, and to reduce strain while preventing injury.

I am adamant that classical singing technique is useful in every style, especially when it comes to exploring one's capabilities and maintaining vocal health! My philosophy is that one's instrument is best learned independently of style, leaving it up to the vocalist to apply what's been learned to their own sense of artistic expression.  Each lesson is customized according to individual student interests. My students' experience levels range from raw beginner to professional performer. It brings me great joy to support my students in developing their sense of autonomy as they gain confidence, understand their potential, and build upon their overall musicianship. I've prepared students for auditions, recitals, televised competitions and other productions, and actively strive to support students in realizing their potential as a musician.
