About

Bio  

I’ve recently moved to the gorgeous mountain town of Kaslo, in the West Kootenay region of BC. I’ll be offering group vocal lessons in the new year (2015), and am also accepting new private students, so please email me at sunsonghealing@yahoo.ca, or phone 250-353-3284 to connect!

I love listening to many different kinds of music, and the styles in which I perform and teach are correspondingly diverse.  I have roots in jazz, blues, and folk, have spent many years studying and performing all types of classical music, and also love the rich textures and and deep rhythms of many kinds of world music as well as a variety of electronic styles.  All of these influences show up in my own compositions and vocal style.

I have a BMus from the University of Victoria, and an MA in music from the University of Alberta; I’ve been teaching voice for 12 years, and piano for over 20 years.  I spent many years in the world of choral music, performing as a chorister and soloist with ensembles such as the UVic Chamber Singers, the U of A Madrigal Singers, Pro Coro Canada, and Ensemble de la Rue.  I studied voice, piano, choral conducting, and musicology at UVic and at U of A, as well as taking additional individual voice lessons with Eva Bostrand and Arlene McIntyre, among others, and studying vocal improv with Rhiannon.
