Dance & Music Lessons
As a vocalist, I grew up in Scotts Valley, only leaving to pursue my college degrees and my singing career! I had the wonderful opportunities to tour with the likes of Bob Hope, George Burns, Danny Thomas, Vince Gil, Robert Goulet and many more. I’ve recorded in Nashville, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Appearances on National and regional television. Radio interviews and airplay.
I had the pleasure of studying under 8 very talented voice instructors, studying everything from Opeta,, Pop, Country, Jazz, Soul, Rhythm and Blues and Rock. One instructor, Seth Riggs, taught the likes of Michael Jackson, Natalie Cole, Barbara Streisand, Michael Bolton, J Lo and Christina Aguiletra, to name a few. Judy Davis,, taught Barbara Streisand, The Mama’s and the Papa’s, Seals and Croft, and many more. I bring to my students the great techniques of not only my previous voice teachers, but also my stage and television experience. Audition perpetration for not only musical theater, but also to ready them for television. performance and connecting to the audience, reading an audience and giving a piece of your soul to that audience, are key.
My years of experience, help bring this out in all students. I love my job, it is my passion, to bring out the best in each student, while making their learning experience Fun and exciting.
