Vocal, Music Professor:
I have taught singing for the almost 20 years in Barcelona, Spain and 6 years of private lessons here in Las Vegas.
My book “Singshop Método Integral de Canto” has been used as a text book in the renowned Music school Taller de Musics in Barcelona, where I taught all levels of students from beginners to professionals. http://www.tallerdemusics.com/
I have a very holistic method of teaching that includes yogic breathing, visualization (tools for pitch improvement), vocalizing, self confidence tools and ear training scales and exercises. I also have a repertoire of methods to help my students in their stage presence, microphone techniques and movement.
My classes and workshops have helped literally 1000’s of students in Spain to improve pitch, power and confidence.
I have been a professional singer, dancer and actor for 30 years, performing in a variety of venues including night clubs, concert halls and stadiums in New York City, Barcelona, Spain, and Las Vegas, NV. My repertoire includes jazz standards, popular music, hits from the 60’s, traditional blues, new age and other styles. I also add some Egyptian belly dance to my show which really stimulates audience response.
I can sing and perform in English, Spanish and French. I believe that my greatest talent as a performer is my ability to deeply touch the hearts of every single member of my audience.

Awards: Carl Seashore Test
I won an award for being one of the top 5 scoring students in the entire city of Rochester, New York.
The Carl Seashore test was sponsored by the Eastman School of Music and is a test of musical ability devised by psychology professor Carl Emil Seashore. He tests five kinds of musical ability: discrimination of pitches, dissonance, rhythmical figures, and intensity; as well as an ability to remember melodies.
I am fully fluent in English and Spanish and speak conversational French.
