Enthusiastic teacher willing to share her love of singing with the students!

Methodology

My teaching method is based on detecting and encouraging music talent in students and designing appropriate lesson plans tailored to the student's age, musical knowledge and interest. Throughout each lesson we go through a couple of breathing and vocal exercises and sing the assigned songs, as I monitor their progress. I always try to use multicultural educational tools to vary lessons, as well as founding concert series and inviting guest performers to cultivate a fun and dynamic environment. In case of younger students, some of my efforts to enhance a strong relationship with parents have been holding conferences to keep parents informed of their child’s progress.

Background

I have been singing for 10 years now, but I didn't start as a singer! I got my bachelor's degree in Instrumental Music (Flute) and discovered my passion for singing in the middle of my musical path as a flutist. I began private voice instruction and when I moved to United States in 2013, I started studying classical voice at Pasadena City College. Currently, I am a graduate student in Music- Vocal Performances at California State University, Northridge.
I started teaching music and voice lessons five years ago, and I have had students with a wide range of musical backgrounds and different ages, from five year old to adults. I work on my students' techniques and I prepare them for their recitals, auditions and competitions. Recently one of my students got into a great music program in Paris, France.
