What is your education and experience?
Bachelor of Music, Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory of Music ; Master of Music, University of Manitoba.
What made you decide to study music?
I always loved being a performer. Singing brings excitement and joy to my life every day.
How are your lessons unique?
My lessons involve an exploratory component, with regular feedback from the student regarding their vocal sensations. I not only want to teach, but I want the student to be able to trust their intuition as well.
What do you love about teaching?
I love the collaborative spirit at MCMA! There are so many opportunities for students to perform and be a part of amazing workshops all year round!
What would you say to someone who is interested in studying music?
I’d say, give it a shot. I believe we all have an urge to communicate through music in some way or another, so find the right fit for you.
