Teaching Philosophy

My approach to Voice is from a combination of different disciplines enrooted in Performance and Acting Education. Since my background combines Theatre with Music, my students get to experience a performer's full perspective, by learning not only Voice technique but tools of exploration and skills to perform in front of an audience.

I want my students to trust and learn from their own processes, I love to be their guide and see how they evolve not only in the subject but as people too.

Musical Education

My first approach to Music education was at the age of 6 when I became a member of the National Children's Choir of Peru.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Arts and
Sciences with a specialization in Performing Arts from PUCP (Lima, Peru). I've studied at NMSU (New Mexico, USA) in the Theatre Arts Faculty as an exchange student for a semester. And I've also studied Voice and Body Training for Actors and Singers in the Grotowski Institute (Wroclaw, Poland). I still keep up with my own voice training by taking classes of Lyrical Singing.
I have been a professional actress and singer for 9 years and a
Voice teacher for 5 years. And I currently live in Vancouver to study Acting for Film and Television at Vancouver Film School.

Awards and Distinctions

I've taught virtual classes of Vocal Technique and Interpretation to Spanish-speaking children and teenagers from different
parts of the world through the renowned ed-tech startup Prendea, during the pandemic. In this role, I have played an instrumental part in the process
of adapting children to virtual education taking care of their social and emotional wellbeing; in keeping their artistic activities and
training still available to them despite social distance; and finally in creating courses and special classes that motivate them to
continue learning in the face of the challenges of the educational situation due to COVID-19. The most important achievement
for me has been having the trust of my employers and my students reflected in the number of courses and hours that I've
taught, having directed more than 16 masterclasses and having more than 100 positive reviews from my own students and
their parents.

30 Minutes: $39.00
45 Minutes: $49.00
60 Minutes: $59.00

There is a one-time registration fee of 25 $ charged with the first lessons. All Taxes are included in prices, if applicable

NOTE: Your Credit card will be charged ONLY when the first lesson is set up and confirmed with the teacher


1. Cancellation Policy

Lessons not cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice are billable to the client and payable to the teacher. This does not of course apply to travel fees unless the notice is effectively given at the door and the teacher has travelled to the location.

2. Cessation (quitting) Policy

A client must provide a 2 lesson notice period to stop lessons. So a weekly student needs to give 2 weeks of notice, a biweekly student works out to 3 weeks notice and a twice weekly student works out to a week of notice.

3. Illness Policy

Lessons cancelled due to illness or extraordinary circumstances with less than 24 hours notice remain billable to the client and payable to the teacher.

BAH teachers are encouraged to offer a make-up lesson at a future date in the interest of client relations and general goodwill. This only makes sense as teaching a student with the flu for example, will ruin the rest of your week's employment.

No more than 2 lessons may be made up due to illness within a 60 day period.

4. Rescheduling Policy

Any lesson can be cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice.

Summer Vacation and Extended Absence Policy

Clients may schedule longer absences for trips etc. 24 hours notice is required.

It is normal and typical for students and about 20% of our teachers to schedule a break in the summer. We do not enforce a notice period (see cessation of lessons) at the end of a long summer break.

5. Evaluation Period

There are no free trial lessons with Beethoven at Home but we do offer a 2 lesson evaluation period where it is easy to try out a teacher. There are no free lessons during the evaluation period and clients may choose to discontinue the lessons at any time by providing the required 24 hours notice. After the student's 3rd lesson the required 2 lesson notice period will apply (see cessation of lessons above).
