In Teacher Studio
Having had an international career as a mezzo-soprano in the USA, Europe, Australia, and Latin America, I have acquired knowledge and experience that I can offer to aspiring singers. It has become a passion of mine to impart these skills to my students and help create the next generation of vocal artists. I welcome all singers who would like to gain a strong technical foundation for any style of singing.
My students won international and national vocal competitions and have been accepted at the prestigious universities and music conservatories.
In addition to running a very successful private voice studio, from 2009-2014 I was also an adjunct professor of voice and diction at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, CA, and in 2016 I worked as a voice instructor for Beginnning, Advanced, and Vocal Performance Class at UC Irvine Vocal Department. I am a proud member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), and the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC).
In 2012 I founded a nonprofit public benefit corporation Orange County Ars Vocalis Academy (OCAVA), which had its inaugural Summer Program for singers in Rome, Italy, in 2013.
Please contact me and see how I can help to take your singing to the next level.

Certificate of Graduation Centro di Perfezionamento, Scala di Milano, Milan, Italy

BA in Vocal Performance, Zagreb Conservatory, Croatia
Genres and Subjects Taught
Control to breathing, phonation, resonation, and articulation
The basics include developing support, tone, pure vowels, and free articulation.
Technique must be tailored to the individual needs and to the individual mindset of the student.
Obsession with technique limits the singer's performing and limits the singer's technique
Development of the joyful creativity of singers working under inspiring and nurturing direction
Technique exists only as a means to bring out of the singer the colors, the emotions, and the depth of personality within his/her in auditory form. The moment technique becomes the goal, the art dies.
