Welcome to my teaching page. Music education has been an indispensable part of my life, helping me to grow into a better person. I believe music and arts education is for and should be accessible to everybody. With that in mind, I offer a range of options from private lessons to group workshops and classes as a teaching artist.
I have a BA in music (composition & contemporary improvisation) from UC Berkeley and an MM in jazz performance (voice) from Manhattan School of Music. The degrees have come in handy as I continue to employ the improvisatory techniques from my training to daily life in addition to applying musical skills in my work as a composer/performer.
In voice lessons, you’ll learn healthy ways to support your voice through breathing and vocal exercises so that your voice can develop in a sustainable way. We’ll work on interpretation, phrasing, enunciation, and intonation on songs of your choosing (likely in the realm of jazz, bossa nova, and indie/singer-songwriter if you’re coming to me for lessons) and I’m happy to make recommendations based on your sound.
