I am a DMA student at University of Maryland – College Park and am an alumnus of the Maryland Opera Studio. I was a teaching assistant with duties including teaching classes like Vocal Literature and French Diction and giving private lessons to voice minors and secondary students. Before moving to Maryland, I was a voice instructor at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where I gave lessons to music majors at Case Western Reserve University. I received his Master of Arts degree at Middle Tennessee State University, where I had Voice and Opera teaching assistantships, and my Bachelor of Music degree from Georgia Southern University. I have a decade of experience teaching private lessons to a wide range of ages, from 13 to 72.
