Hello. I am a professional musician with a private studio located in Oliver. I have 18 years teaching experience and prior to creating my own private studio, I was a professor of music at various colleges and universities throughout Alberta and Canada including MacEwan University, Medicine Hat College and Brock University. I am a multi instrumental (voice, piano, flute, ukelele) vocal technician with a very strong background in both contemporary and classical music with a degree in vocal performance. Presently, I spend most of my time as a jazz singer but have sung on the opera stage and have spent many years training aspiring opera singers. I coach all styles of music from jazz, pop, and r & b to opera and art song. I prepare singers for recitals, competitions, exams, auditions, and recordings. I also coach songwriting, theory and ear training, and piano skills for those aspiring to break into the contemporary music market and find representation. For those of you aspiring to sing on the musical theatre stage, I have a very extensive background directing musicals and conducting vocal jazz ensembles. Regardless of all of this information, my passion and love of creating, sharing and teaching music are why I do what I do and whether you are a beginner or advanced student, I am excited about being part of your musical journey whether it is for personal enjoyment or for the professional music business. Please feel free to contact me to book a consultation.
