Teaching Artist Statement
I have always had a passion for teaching and inspiring students through Music is something that is accessible to everyone, and that is the foundation for her teaching style. Regarding vocal pedagogy, she encourages each student to utilize a healthy, breath-based technique in order to achieve optimal resonance unique to each student. Singing is a wonderful way for people to express themselves while learning patience, empathy, and tenacity, skills that can translate to many other areas of life. Students are encouraged to study the anatomy of the larynx and vocal mechanism to better understand how their instrument functions. She has experience preparing students for theater, district, and all-state auditions, and served as the assistant manager and manager for the chorus for the All-Cape and Islands Music Festival.
