    About MeContact Me
    I am a 2009 vocal performance graduate of Pacific Lutheran University where I had extensive training in classic performance as well as group and private teaching. I have been teaching music within my religious community for more than five years. I also actively participate in Rj's Express, a local big band, as a vocalist and vocal coach in addition to performing classic and stage voice in community and religious venues.

    My teaching style is focused on the individual student and their unique needs and goals. I use mirrors, tools, and body awareness technique to help students understand how their sound is connected to the physical. I require students to set concrete targets and to work hard to attain them. I encourage students to participate in school and community music programs including choir, stage productions, recitals and solo/ensemble contests.

    Music is not only for the rich and each student who has the desire should have the opportunity. I understand that most can't afford exorbitant amounts of money for music lessons. Which is why I charge on a sliding scale starting at $20/hr or $15/half hr..

    I teach in my home in South Tacoma, WA between 4pm-6pm Wed-Sat with flexibility.

    I look forward to teaching you/your student!
