- Ear Training
- Music Appreciation
- Music Theory (Beginner-Intermediate)
I believe growth and education come from a place of playfulness and curiosity. I love to nerd out on the anatomy of your instrument, particularly voice. I've had experience with injury both vocally and from playing the guitar so I'm eager to set students upon a path of healthy musical practice habits. I don't believe singers may be referred to as "just singers" either by themselves or others. I expect my vocalists to be ready to learn the same amount of ear training and theory as the rest of my students so that when musicians come together, they can work together effectively and collaboratively. The best way to study Music History is to study who your heroes studied.
I have a Diploma in Jazz and Contemporary Music from Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton with a major in Vocal Performance (2017).
I got my teaching degree from the National College of Art and Design (N.C.A.D), Dublin, Ireland (2005).
While my very first vocal teacher was classical, I spent the last 17 years studying from various private vocal teachers who predominantly work within the contemporary music industry. These experiences have given me a broad range of teaching styles to draw upon. I've also had invaluable artistic mentorship from an artist who is signed to a major record label. This has helped guide my development as a professional artist and has enabled me to tour throughout the world.
