Being a part of one’s artistic journey is an honor. I love helping people learn the power of what the arts hold and teaching them the proper tools to use their natural talents.
He is wonderful! He's very patient with me and I like him alot
He is patient but pushes me to be the best I can be. He is always encouraging and has the best tips for the things I need to work on. He has helped me tremendously with my confidence, which was a major problem I had to begin with. He makes every lesson fun and honestly reminded me why I began and loved singing in the first place. He also makes me feel like I can do anything I want to if I work hard and stop being hard on myself 24/7. Working with him has been one of the best decisions ive made as an artist but also as a person because he has that much of an impact.
