I've developed a rudimentary way of connecting musical thought as your personal language to express oneself, regardless an instrument or voice. Vocalist must find the sound and discover the dimensions of your voice as an instrument. How to create wonderful sounds within the syntax of music expression. This concept is a shared element for every instrument although the physicality to perform the technique becomes the challenge.
As a singer first and the Viola, my hand instrument. Viola controls inner harmony and rhythms in the string family. My perspective is unique as I approach as hear and teach the fundamentals. With this approach you will come to discover and enjoy the journey as you progress ti make nice music.
Therefore to arrive at the optimal result to reach your goal in making music.
Sharing my gift of music which I discovered as a child of couriosity and mischief. We all have this drive throughout our lives young and mature ages, as music serves us regardless the level or skils acheived. Music has led me to realize many insights and possibilities of myself. In my experience within choirs, church and secular, groups taught me about our natural nature to please each other through a learning process.
DC Youth Chorale was a special organization I was lucky to have participated in. Young talented children devoted and enthusiastic to interact in harmony. Excellent musical director and accompanist of world-class performance standards.
DC Youth Orchestra, when I picked up a Viola for the first time out of curiosity. Never put it away. Beethoven Symphony No. 7, 2nd movement, was the inspiration that took me to music college.
