What do you teach at the Con?
I teach vocals and ChiME (Children’s music program) .
What genres do you teach?
I teach all genres from classical to pop.
I have a special interest in vocal technique so that my students will have a good understanding of how their voices work and make the best of them in a safe healthy way.
What is it that you love about teaching music – particularly at Wollongong Conservatorium?
Teaching and playing music are my life purposes. I love to be able to share what I have learned during my career and see the evolution of my students, and the happiness that music brings to their lives. Music is always going to be there for them once they learned about it and it’s the best company ever.
Singing is a magical journey of self-discovery, since our own unique voices are the instrument, we are learning to play. I feel blessed to be able to guide my students in that journey.
Please share a particular career highlight and why it’s special to you.
The first concert of my students in Colombia, was a very special moment for me. It was really rewarding to see how much they have grown vocally and their self-confidence; it fulfilled my heart.
Also, my graduation concert was a very special moment in my life and singing with Sydney Philharmonic Choir for first time in the opera house.
What’s one piece of music that you’d recommend people listen to?
It’s really hard to choose only one since I have interest in so many genres. But I love traditional music from South America, where I am originally from. This is a song from the Colombian composer Luz Marina Posada, “Tu sortilegio” and “si no cantara” from Marta Gomez.
