I am now in the Cherry Hills Community Choir. I have had experience with pop, jazz, RnB and gospel style music! I have trained students for recitals, musical festivals, state competitions and Opera performance. For 6 years my honor choir received first place ratings at the ACSI music competition.
I have been teaching private voice for over 20 years.
