"As an educator, my mission is to become the type of instructor that every student needs and deserves at that point in their learning processes. After 10 years of practice as a voice instructor, both in music academies and in colleges internationally, I understand the role of the private instructor as a mentor, able to support the student’s learning process, adapting to the class requirements and the necessities and interests of every learner."
"A good mentor should also be very empathic, organized, and proficient, and provide ordered and practical guidance, work materials, and demonstrations in both technical and stylistic approaches, which I work hard to offer to each of my students, no matter their semester level and expertise. This is the kind of instructor that every learner deserves in order to learn efficiently and receive the correct amount of support and motivation needed to succeed."
Being myself an active international performer and recording artist, composer, producer of live music events, educator, and activist, as well as a cultural journalist with a master's degree in PR and training in acting, artistic direction, and stage direction, I offer real perspectives and approaches to the work developed in the classroom and focus on providing bridges and opportunities to connect those learning experiences with each student's career development."
