Attention all SINGERS ... It's Your Time to SHINE! "I love to see beginners have fun expressing themselves through song."
Teaching Philosophy

I tailor the music curriculum to each student. I want each student to develop their musical skills including, but not limited to improving breathing, perfecting sight reading, overcoming shyness, mastering stage presence, memorizing music pieces, learning theory, and above all having FUN. I want each student to SHINE!


I am a Cleveland native who knows first hand what awesome impact music can make. I started singing at two with my dad. I attended Rainey Institute and then got accepted to Cleveland School of the Arts, where I majored in vocal music and minored in drama. For the last 15 years, I have had the honor of exploring the world of music with pre-k to adult students. I have enjoyed creating arts curriculum for schools and summer camp programs. I am a living witness that the world of MUSIC can change a life. I look forward to sharing this world with future students and creating opportunities through music for them to SHINE!
