Overview:
I began my love of music in highschool, being in the marching band for 4 years playing several different instruments (percussion, trumpet, trombone, tuba). Singing became my choice of career in college, and while in college, I was able to perform major roles in operas such as Porgy and Bess in which I played the role of Serena at the age of 19, making me the youngest person to have ever performed that huge role. I was able to compose several pieces, two of which were premiered in four different continents. I graduated from Morgan State University in May 2015 with a passport full of stamps and not a dime of my own money spent on it performing around the world.  In my time in college, I was heavily impacted by several teachers who sparked my interest in teaching. Seeing the passion they had when instructing their students made me want to impact others in the same way. I started doing some studying on vocal techniques, the anatomy of the head and throat, and the latest in vocal pedagogy research. I started teaching my own private voice lessons two years ago using what I researched and my own personal experiences. The results from my students were AMAZING. I had a student who came to me and was suffering from a voice injury and through suggested voice therapy and my voice lessons, she was able to Sing to her full potential without harshness, rasp, or vocal discomfort at all.  I am a member of Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity Inc. and our open motto is "Vita Brevis Ars Longa" The Latin to English translation is, "Life is short, Art is long." This is a motto for every musician to live by. Teaching, to me, is a continuance of a long lived art that will never die as long as it is taught. I wish to share my passion, so my students can share theirs.
EXPERIENCE
I have taught students between the age ranges of 10-62. My experience with them all will be cherished forever! I recently relocated here back to Baltimore, MD from Dallas, TX for graduate school. I taught in my private studio in Baltimore in the past, but I am now searching for new students! I will gladly travel to you, or you can come to me!! I am an adamant believer of hard work. I believe if you work hard, you can achieve ANYTHING you want. I am looking forward to meeting new students who are willing to work hard and become the best singer they can!
METHODS USED
For all of my students, I use the Bel canto (beautiful singing) method.Bel Canto is a traditional method rooted in classical singing. I have found this method to work for all students of all levels of skill because it teaches a seamless blend of the vocal registers no matter the genre. It is a method that works most with the Mezzo de Voce (middle of the voice) which in return strengthens the passaggio ( the transition area between the vocal registers). I teach traditionally, but I like to have a lot of fun. I work with each student to show them that this can be a lot of fun .
LESSON STYLE
I am a combination of a traditional and fun teacher. I value the traditional side of my teaching because it ensures healthy singing which in turn promotes longevity of the voice. This traditionalism will show my students what I expect from them. I want to enstill in my students the value of discipline in a craft.  I love my fun side of my teaching because it allows the student to enjoy the process of growing into a great musician. Music is hardwork! Despite its hard work, it is a Universal Language that connects us all and brings us joy. I teach my students to understand the musical experience that they provide for their audience. I let my students pick some of their own pieces with my provision.  I customize my lessons for the student. No student will have the same lesson, but my expectation for greatness will not be compromised. All students are capable of achieving greatness! I encourage my students through everything. Small progress is still progress and I love seeing it! I aspire to motivate all of my students to the top of their potential.
