She has produced recitals and concert events as well as master classes throughout Southern California, including at Classical Singer conventions.

Vicky is delighted to use her expertise in both classical and contemporary music to help her students become the singers and musicians they want to be. She has worked with students of all ages and backgrounds, both in her private studio, and at institutions such as The Colburn School of Performing Arts (Los Angeles), American Musical and Dramatic Academy (Hollywood), Cerritos College (Norwalk, CA), and Westmont College (Montecito, CA).
Vicky’s greatest satisfaction is to help students grow as singers, musicians, and people by developing a strong foundation in their instrument, performance skills, and music literacy. She is deeply committed to helping students build confidence through encouragement and positive experiences. She believes that the study of music is tremendously important not only for its own sake, but also for the invaluable life skills that students gain from a deep immersion into all aspects of the art.
