CAT - Piano and Voice Teacher (Bilingual, Spanish & English)
(Denison University - Vocal Performance Certificate. Musical director and arranger for the women’s a cappella group at Denison Univ.)
I love teaching private lessons because I can customize classes to students' dreams and learning styles to foster authentic musicianship in the next generation. I’ve been teaching for 10 years - 6 years privately.
In recent years, I created the curriculum and taught for Bay Area Girls Rock Camp as well as Willie Mae Rock Camp For Girls in New York and currently the Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls L.A. and Chicas Rockeras SE L.A. I've sung in synth-pop, R&B, rock, punk, soul, latin, experimental and jazz bands and played guitar, bass, keys, and percussion as well. I have provided original music, vocals and arrangements for studio recordings, independent film soundtracks, commercials, stage productions, Museum of Art and History Santa Cruz openings, Berkeley Art Museum workshops, and musical tours of the Portland Art Museum.
Previously, I taught lessons and vocal master classes at Starfish Studios and ran an after-school program in Portland, OR in which I taught music and ran summer camps. I also volunteered at Ethos Music Center Rock Band Camp and Vocal Camp. Before that, I taught music in a bilingual program at an elementary school in Barcelona; I speak fluent Spanish.
I earned a Vocal Performance Certificate from Denison University and was the musical director and arranger for the women’s a cappella group there. I also performed as the lead vocalist for the Blues, Swing, Latin Jazz, and Bluegrass ensembles at Denison.
Leading up to college, I performed in competitive concert and show choirs and musical theater productions for 10 years, and I love sharing this breadth of experience with all of my students and audiences.
Looking forward to teaching you LESSNS!
