I have been teaching piano and voice privately for about 22 years now.  I began teaching while I was studying music education at Cal State Long Beach and have maintained a private studio since that time.  I have taught children's choirs at church, community groups and classes, and voice classes at Orange County High School of the Arts (for three years.) I received my master's degree in vocal performance in 2006 from the Bob Cole Conservatory at CSULB and began teaching at the college level as well.  I taught private voice at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in Hollywood, CA for four years.  I have been teaching at Los Angeles Harbor College (voice classes, private voice, and music theory) for the past 12years, private voice, voice class, and a vocal jazz ensemble at California Polytechnic University at Ponoma for the past 10 years, and voice class, private voice at Cal State Dominguez Hills for the last two years. I also adjudicate competitions/festivals on occasion, have developed summer voice programs, and have taught many master classes.  I maintain a private studio in Cypress, Orange County where I teach private voice and piano to around 25 students typically.  

 

I charge $35/half hour for pianists, $40/half hour for the novice vocalist, and $60/45 minutes for more experienced singers.  Some additional discounts are available for multiple instruments and/or multiple students.  I accept cash, checks, venmo and zelle (or paypal, you are assessed a fee).
