Naomi Williams (B.Mus, Honours Voice Performance, Laurier) has been teaching vocal students of all ages in classical, musical theatre, rock, and pop, for 15 years. She launched AvidDiva Music, her business in Calgary, in 2014. Some of her past AvidDiva Ambassadors (what she has dubbed her students), are now studying post-secondary degrees at schools including McGill, and the National Theatre School of Canada. Her current students range from incredibly active performers to recreational singers. In addition to her private teaching, over her past ten years in Calgary she has performed in, music directed, and won awards in community and professional musical theatre productions, sung in cover bands as a lead rock/pop vocalist, sung with the Calgary Opera Chorus, and has been a roster singer/performer/writer for Cowtown Opera. She helped launch the successful Morpheus Theatre G&S Jr. young artist performing group, and was the director/instructor for the Kids & Music program with the Youth Singers of Calgary from 2016-2020. In 2016, Naomi was one of 3 Canadians awarded the Joan Frey Boytim Award for Independent Teachers (NATS). You can find Naomi & her studio on Instagram @aviddivamusic
