Bio: I believe that every person has the ability to enjoy the profound experience of expressing themselves through music and I take great joy in helping students learn the art of musical performance.
\My lovely sunlit studio is centrally located in Carmichael, CA - easily accessible from Sacramento, Folsom and Rancho Cordova.
\I have been engaged in studying and performing music since I was 8 years old and am an experienced performer with over 400 solo appearances. I have an undergraduate degree and 2 years of graduate study in singing. As a performing musician and a retired surgeon/anatomy professor, I am specific about how the body functions in breath management, vocal production, resonation and pronunciation and how to use it to sing a variety of musical styles both safely and musically
My students receive instruction in a range of musical styles including classical, musical theater, and jazz, as well as basic musicianship, such as reading music, music theory and history. Students receive lots of positive feedback and clear instruction about how to develop new skills and knowledge.
\I have strong ties to the local musical community, and can help students identify organizations to perform with, and prepare for auditions when required.
