During my time at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, my passion for piano took center stage, although my major was in Voice. Piano became my secondary pursuit, yet I wholeheartedly dedicated myself to its study. Recognizing the inherent difficulties that accompany mastering this instrument, I firmly believe that with the correct technique and unwavering determination, it can be triumphed over.
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Our first session will be an introductory one, where I'd listen to my students sing, and I get to learn more about their capabilities. Then we'd discuss their aspirations, where they see themselves headed, things they'd like to learn, and what to expect in each lesson. I'd further develop a plan to work on student's challenges and achieve their full vocal potential.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm a music educator by profession. I have a Bachelors degree in Music Education from the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts Jamaica, WI. I have five years of experience teaching vocal and instrumental music to students both at the elementary and high school levels.
