In Their Own Words

“My teaching style is focused around the individual. I concentrate on technique, styles, ear training, keeping time, physical coordination, or whatever I feel the student needs to develop their career according to their level and needs. The stylistic approach to Latin, Brazilian, modern flamenco, rock and jazz includes different techniques, employing improvisation and the proper use of different vocal registers.”

“As an active performing artist who works with important musicians, I had the opportunity to develop my melodic ideas beyond all limits, being inspired by other great masters. I try to teach my students to challenge themselves in that way. Sometimes they limit themselves by not exploring improvisational ideas, so I encourage them to explore all vocal options, maintain that curiosity, and explore their limits. The most important thing is to keep focusing, keep exploring, and keep enjoying the music.”
