Lisa is a vocalist, keyboardist, and proud music instructor. She holds a Bachelors degree of music from the Chicago College of Performing Arts, and studied classical voice with Mr. Matthew Chellis, as well as jazz voice and theory with Miss Cheryl Wilson and Mr. Scott Mason.
Her professional experience includes studying and performing classical music, jazz, musical theater and choral singing as well as playing gigs in Chicago, New Orleans, and Minneapolis. Lisa also has experience teaching group classes, writing curriculum and managing a music studio. Most recently, she instructed a vocal jazz ensemble for the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra's Youth Program.
These joyful opportunities in music have continued over the last ten years and counting. During lessons with Lisa you will work on developing a healthy technique through exercise and anatomical awareness. Students can expect to challenge themselves in a supportive environment that will build performance-ready confidence. You are encouraged to learn your favorite songs, unfamiliar music, and how to read and write using the musical language (digging into concepts like melody, chord changes and rhythm). Come sing the blues, jazz, pop, choral works, musical theater, or anything else that inspires a passionate idea about music in you."
