Hello! I am an avid performer and instructor in the D.C. metropolitan area. I attended the University of Maryland, College Park and graduated in 2015 in Voice Performance and Spanish Language. I currently direct a children’s choir at the National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C., and have performed extensively as a soloist and chorus member in various prestigious theatres, including the Kennedy Center, Baltimore Lyric Opera House, the Key Theatre and with companies such as the Maryland Opera Studio, the National Symphony Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and the UMD Symphony Orchestra.
I believe that every student has a the ability to grow and to succeed as a musician. As a voice teacher, it is my responsibility to find each student’s unique creative talent and develop the skills for the student to become a confident artist and performer. My expectations for each student are very high, higher than the student may think they can achieve. It is my job to see in my students what they cannot see in themselves. I will push them past their comfort zone in a variety of ways to bring them to a new level of confidence and ability. Learning an instrument, particularly the voice, makes the student very vulnerable. I like to create a safe environment so that the student can be comfortable enough to ask questions, try their own ideas, and look inside themselves to find their expression and create their art. I believe the ability to express yourself is the main purpose of making music.
