My Philosophy

I believe that absolutely anyone can learn to sing, it just takes practice and patience.  I use classical vocal techniques to help my students achieve their goals, no matter what sort of singing they plan to do.  Healthy singing is the key to success, and I work with students to find their voice in a healthy way.  I use Kodaly's method of Solfeggio to learn music and believe sight reading is an important skill to be cultivated.  I believe that a good musical foundation consists of an understanding of music theory, sightreading techniques, and knowing your own voice. 

My Story

I always knew I wanted to teach, and private lessons are a wonderful way to connect with students and see real growth.  After studying voice at University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, I pursued inner-city teaching opportunities.  I have a passion for teaching voice to students in the city, so I began teaching in Milwaukee Public Schools in 2013 at Reagan IB High School.  I have enjoyed teaching choir as well as private voice for my students at Reagan.  I continually seek out performance opportunities for my students to challenge their growth and encourage new experiences.  Currently, I reside in Milwaukee, WI with my husband and sing with Bel Canto Chorus.

My Training
Bachelors of Music Education- Choral/General

University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh 2013

I received my degree from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, studying voice privately with Joyce Andrews.  I sang with the Oshkosh Chamber Choir under the direction of Carl Chapman and Eric Barnum. I learned a wealth of information about young singers and the best techniques to use to esure results.  I currently hold a valid Wisconsin teaching license for K-12 students.
