Teaching Experience: In addition to opera singers, I have coached pop and R&B vocalists, country artists, rock musicians, actors, choir members, and beginning singers. Some of my professional students include Lorena Tassinari, HeXx Henderson, and Chyka Jackson. I have worked as the children’s chorus master and vocal coach for the California Philharmonic and several opera companies.
Teaching Philosophy: Music is good for your mental, physical and emotional health. Also, try to keep consistent in your lessons. It is good to have a sense of normalcy and routine.
