My path as a singer and voice teacher is a performing and academic mix.
I started taking singing lessons at a very young age and haven’t stop ever since. Trying my voice through different teachers and vocal coaches, both through contemporary and classical lessons, it isn’t before I arrived in Montreal that I started discovering my own true voice and enhancing my full vocal potential (the best of thanks to Angie Arsenault, my mama songbird). My love and passion for musical theatre led me to focus my training in that direction, both as a singer and an actress, and I ended up graduating from the Randolph College for the Performing Arts (Toronto). Learning from this experience, I had the immense privilege of winning first place in an international musical theatre competition, and performing at Carnegie Hall on Broadway (I still can’t believe it!).
In the meantime, voice has always fascinated me. So much that I undertook a Master’s degree in Musicology at the Université de Montréal in order to study the voice, its mechanisms, and its phonostyles. This degree enabled me to understand the voice at a deeper level. With that, I also encountered the wonderful Estill Voice Training® program, and after completing the levels 1 and 2, I undertook the Estill Figure Proficiency (EFP) certificate.
I have been lucky enough to be performing professionally for about 10 years now, both as a singer and an actor. My latest credits include: Jack l’Éventreur (Compagnie de l’Eclipse), La Petite Sirène (The Musical Production), Sunshine Boy (dir. Fiona Sauder), A Dispute (Dir. Alistair Newton), Spring Awakening (Broadway Academy). Apart from theatre, I’ve had the chance to feature as a VoiceOver artist, vocal backups, and other fascinating projects. The beauty of performing is that you never rest and always look for new ways to practice and improve your craft.
This very eclectic path and my love for singing and the voice itself is what led me to teach in the first place. I have always loved transmitting. So, it’s very naturally that I started teaching a couple of years ago, when I felt ready to do so. There’s nothing more fulfilling for me than a student taking possession of their own voice.
Aside from performing and teaching, I am also a singer-songwriter and I am currently working on my first solo album, with inspirations from the country-folk repertoire.
I’m happy to share that in December 2021 I obtained the ESTILL VOICE TRAINING® EFP Certification.
