I was NEVER the genius that could just freely sing hi or lo fluently without much effort. I studied and worked my way through and still practice and study everyday to maintain and polish my skills and musical knowledge. I’ve been through the struggle of finding a functional approach to use your instrument, finding the freedom to sing in full emotion. With over 15years of teaching experience, I have much to offer in lessons to pass on to you.
