ZDR PERFORMING ARTS STUDIO

Welcome

I’m glad you’re here and I look forward to joining you in your journey of discovering your musical talents and developing your musicianship skills. I am a trained pianist and professional opera singer. I currently sing with U.S opera companies, symphonies, and arts organizations. My musical journey began with piano. I studied classical piano from the age of eight and throughout college. I have performed as a piano soloist, vocal soloist, and also in a rock band where I played contemporary piano and sang lead vocals. After graduating college with a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a focus in piano and voice, I became the director of a conservatory k-12. After a few years, I pursued a masters in vocal performance. Following the completion of my Master’s degree I moved to Boston to perform with the Boston University Opera Institute for 2 years. My career in music has lead me to perform with professional regional music organizations in the U.S. I have had the privilege of performing in arenas with over 3 thousand patrons and intimate spaces of just under 100 patrons. I believe that with my experience in performing and my extensive training in music I’m able to give my students the tools necessary to learn a proper technique of their instrument in any repertoire while still enjoying their craft for what it is: a beautiful intangible art form.

Why I teach

I teach because I love it. Specifically, it is an amazing feeling to see my students’ progress. It is humbling and encouraging to see my students discover what their bodies are able to do when the correct technique is taught and the body and mind are able to work together. Many of my incoming students have come with tension and confusion from previous ill informed techniques, once we they discover how to use their bodies in the most efficient way, it is like a light bulb turns on. I live for those moments! It is equally special to have a student without any previous experience. To see a child’s own fears be conquered after playing a scale or an adult student discovering a vocal range they did not know existed is a great reward for me.
