Frequently asked questions

Listen to their voice to assess the skill level and pitch accuracy.

I started singing at the age of 4 shadowing my grandmother's voice. I've sung in school choirs from junior high through high school. I relocated to Southern California to further my career in music and was signed to a production contract soon after at the age of 25.

In my mid 30' I decided to enroll in El Camino College to take some music classes to further my skills and knowledge.s. For sight-singing, music theory, and choral music,  I studied under Dr. Joanna Medawar Nachef and piano under Professor James Hurd.

After acquiring this discipline, I became a better singer and vocal coach. My passion and love to teach it to others grew stronger, from my tone-deaf siblings to intermediate singers in the industry.

My pricing is on a sliding scale of $40-70 for a one-hour session.

I've always felt I was born to be a music teacher. I started teaching choir at the age of 16 at my church. I had a very good ear to teach harmony and voicing.
