I believe it is everyone’s birthright to sing and express themselves with music! With passion and permission, I aim for creating a safe-enough space to share the joy of music-making that I believe is available to everyone. When working with children and youth, my approach is to let the child or youth lead and to nurture their innate curiosities and inclinations. With all ages, I centre healthy, gentle breath and vocal technique in addition to play, movement and improvisation! By emphasizing play, my experience is children and youth (as well as adults) become much more available to technical aspects of music-making. When teaching, I will also sometimes bring in instruments like piano, guitar and percussion to support the student’s learning process.
As a youth, I studied classical voice technique and dedicated many years to performing as a singer, dancer and actor. From 2015-2016, I attended the Victoria Conservatory of Music in the Diploma in Music Performance Program, specializing in Classical and Contemporary Voice. Subsequently, I continued my studies in Montréal at Concordia University with my BA in Communication Studies and a Minor in Music, where I focussed on sound production. Overall, I have over 10+ years of training in classical voice technique! I've had a variety of teachers in different musical styles over the years including Kathleen Brett, Ingrid Attrot, Louise Rose (D.F.A), Dr. Irene Feher (D. Mus), and Vancouver-based soprano Raphael Wagner. I've written, composed and co-produced a self-released album, and consistently perform with my shared musical project, Emergence, and as a solo singer/songwriter.

I have extensive experience working with children and youth ages 3 to 17 years as a Voice, Beginner Piano & Musical Theatre Teacher individually and in groups. My teaching pedagogy is also informed by my work with Music for People, an organization that uses improvisation as a tool to help music-making become more accessible to people with little to no musical experience. I have also completed the Dance Your Ability Facilitator Training, and integrate many movement-based tools into my teaching practice.
