She is especially experienced in training singers for auditions including preparing high school students for entrance into higher education music programs and for professional auditions. She teaches voice, piano, theory, and sight-singing to students of all ages and abilities.
“Belinda is absolutely such a sweetheart! She’s always praising me for what I’m excelling at, and I think that’s a very essential part of learning. She sings really well, and Belinda also goes above and beyond to helping me really acquire my voice. She abides by my every request and really helps me with whatever I want to learn. Belinda sends recordings of the piano so I could practice at home and I think that’s very nice of her!”
“I had a wonderful experience working with Belinda on voice lessons. I had some former training (college singing scholarship), but it was 20 years ago. I wanted to get some of it back and she was great. She taught me some new tricks, and was very patient as I learned to trust my voice and not be embarrassed after all this time since I last sang. I trust her to work with any skill level.”
“I have taken voice lessons with Belinda for over a year now and I have not regret any bit of it. Not only does Belinda bring out your voice, and help you become confident within your voice, but she educates you and helps you with techniques to become a better singer overall. Belinda has helped me develop into a confident and wonderful singer, and has helped me express myself through performances. I am very grateful for the time I had with Belinda. I hope she can pass this on to every student she will teach in the future.”
“Belinda has been teaching my 7 year old piano and singing for some time now. She has been an exceptional teacher. Aside from being very skilled at teaching her craft, she has always been very patient and kind. Shes consistently enthusiastic, which has kept my son excited and committed to piano. He enjoys class and always looks forward to his lesson with Belinda!”
