was born and raised in Mesquite, Texas. My teaching philosophy is simple: to create vocally healthy, confident musicians. I received a BM in Vocal Performance from Southern Methodist University in 2008. During my undergraduate years, I performed with Meadows Opera Theatre (SMU), The Living Opera and Metroplex Opera. I travelled to the Franco-American Vocal Academy in France to perform the role of Berginella in Offenbach’s La Perichole as well as multiple recitals with FAVA. In 2010, I received my Master of Music degree from Texas State University, under the tutelage of Cheryl Parrish.
I live in Dallas with my husband, Emmanuel, my cat, Hoffman, and my (adorable) son, Xander. When not teaching at home, I teach at JJPHS and RHS in Richardson. Previously I was on the voice faculty at Marcus HS in Flower Mound. I am also a professor of voice at Dallas College, Mountain View campus. I am a member of NATS.

Ms. Espiritu has been incredibly beneficial to my daughter. Her singing has progressed so much in the last year and has allowed her great opportunities in theater productions. She is organized, flexible and motivational. Definitely recommend her!
Mrs. Espiritu is a wonderful blend of fun and knowledge. I feel like I have grown more in one year with her than I have in multiple years with other teachers
I first get to know the student; their interest and musical tastes, their experience, and their goals. Then I warm them up and just listen to their voice to get a good idea of their sound. Sometimes I'll have them sing part of a song to get a clearer picture of their sound.
I have a BM in Vocal Performance from SMU, and a MM in Vocal Perfomance from Texas State University-San Marcos. Teaching singing is my passion in life, and, since 2009, I've been teaching voice lessons.

45-minute lesson: $40
60-minute lesson: $54
I knew I wanted to start teaching lessons around 2006, while taking Vocal Pedagogy at SMU. In 2009, I finally had the opportunity at San Marcos Hogh School and Canyon High School.
I have worked with students ages 10+, (my oldest student was 84!) and all voice types. I specialize in creating a healthy sound, no matter what kind of music you sing.
I successfully hosted two Zoom virtual recitals for my students, and I was so pleased with how well they turned out. The students sang beautifully, and were so well prepared. It was a very smooth process, especially since it was the first time I had done a virtual recital!
Look for a teacher that will lift you up, and that will help encourage good sounds and correct poor technique.
What are their long-term goals? Are they looking for audition prep or to get better gradually? How committed are you willing to be at improving your sound?
