    I am a classically trained professional singer and teach a wide variety of styles, including classical, jazz, pop, folk, and blues. I enjoy teaching both one on one and in classroom settings online. I have had experience teaching singing, acting, and music to people of all ages, from adults and adolescents to children and young children.

    I have extensive performance and teaching experience. While a primary focus in my career has been performance, I have taken enormous pleasure in being able to take on a range of teaching responsibilities.

  • I hold a double degree Bachelor in Arts (music) and Science (psychology) from La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. I hold a Master of Business from the University of Illinois, USA (2019). I completed the Preparatory Opera Course at the Royal Academy of Music in London (2006) and was awarded the following scholarships: Alex Templeton; William Gibbs Religious and Educational Trust; Ars Musica Australis, and an Opus 50 Charitable Trust. I was a finalist for the New York Study Award at the Sydney Opera House and won the Frank Lasslett Memorial Award at the National Liederfest Australia.

    I have an excellent understanding of how students learn and how to teach them effectively. It is my aim to create a safe and challenging learning environment, and I use a wide range of teaching practices and resources to engage my students in effective learning. I am an active member of my profession and have a wide and ongoing experience as a performer. I run my own opera company, Kinder Opera, which has a focus on children's opera.

    I have held a position as a peripatetic singing teacher for several years in an independent day school in London with more than 500 students, of which I taught over 40 pupils per week. It is my intention to inspire creativity and find one's own voice and confidence. Students I have taught have gone on to enjoy exciting careers such as Anya Taylor-Joy from “The Queen's Gambit”. 

    I worked as a camp director and workshop leader for singing and drama at the Charles-Dickens-Grundschule running music and dance classes for refugee students and at Berlitz Kids and Teens.

    As a performer, I have worked in the hectic and high-pressure environments of the corporate sector, festivals, and theaters, where keeping a sense of humor is a must. I enjoy working as part of a team and take initiative where required. I have always had an excellent relationship with my students and have experience in preparing them for assessment both within a school environment and externally. I am familiar with the content of the AMEB, the ABRSM, and the British GCSE and A Levels music curriculum. I have experience in both planning and assessing students for effective learning.

    I have delivered early music learning to groups of up to 30 children from the ages of 3 to 7 years, where children learned music through singing, instruments, and movement games.

    As a professional singer, companies I have worked with include Opera Australia, OzOpera, Surrey Opera, Buxton Festival Opera, Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra, Lyric Opera of Melbourne, Grange Park Opera, Melbourne Opera Company, Independent Classics Melbourne, Gertrude Opera, Yarra Valley Festival, Scottish Opera and Victorian Opera. I toured through China with the 70-piece Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra.

    In Melbourne, I regularly led my own jazz band, which played at venues such as The Hilton Hotel and The Carlton Crest Hotel, and held residences such as an 8-month residency at the Stork Hotel in Melbourne’s Central Business District.

    I hope together we can make a difference.
