STUDIO

Though her performance career is accelerating, Erin is passionate about guiding singers, of all ages and abilities, to find their true voice and to use their unique instrument freely and with expression. Erin teaches all students a healthy technique based in the Italian bel canto tradition of legato singing through free and even movement of the breath grounded with a proportional “lean” of support, or appoggio, proper vocal fold adduction, and the balance of focus and depth (chiaroscuro) of sound through awareness of the resonating chambers. Erin teaches all styles of music to keep lessons engaging and fun, while also incorporating written and aural music theory, performance strategies, and beginning piano.  

Erin received a Master of Music in Opera Performance from CSULB, a Bachelor of Arts in Music from UC Berkeley, and continues to study voice with Shigemi Matsumoto.
