My degrees are from University of North Texas and include a M.S in Music and Drama and a B.M in vocal music plus a teacher certificate in all level vocal music. I have teaching certificates in 2 countries. I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing and participate in continuing professional training through that organization and through contemporary singing seminars. I also completed a course in digital sound design and have studied beginning music production and programming for musicians.
I have sung lead roles in parlor operas, musical theater productions, and oratorios and have sung with bands and in a cappella groups. That's why I studied singing for nearly 20 years in private vocal lessons in addition to my musical studies at university. I studied advanced vocal teaching methods and combine this knowledge with a strong academic grounding in music and strong performance skills.
