Mikaela graduated with a B.M. in vocal jazz studies from the University of North Texas and has been teaching privately for about seven years. Growing up in Seattle, she performed with Island Sound for 10 years, and still records music for their shows. Mikaela's lessons can involve any combination of voice (technique, song selection, style), songwriting, music theory, performance and general musicality. "I hand tailor my lessons to the student's individual needs and goals. My number one priority is to make sure my students are always having fun while building confidence and learning important musical (and life) skills."
