Hi, I’m Kristina. I’m a professional vocalist, actor, performing arts coach, Chinese Crested dog mom and interior design enthusiast. I absolutely love teaching people the power of their own voice and authenticity.
I’m so glad you landed on my little part of the internet! I have such a deep passion for music and performance and I can’t wait to share that with you. As a little girl, my teachers were such a guiding star for my talent and development as an artist and I feel honored to be able to pass the torch to my students now. Every voice is unique and every student experiences different challenges and triumphs and my job is to build your technique to prepare you for all of it.
I’m a born and raised New Orleans girl and I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember. Music in my city is on every street corner and embedded into our culture and hearts. I sang everywhere and I sang A LOT. My family got the hint and enrolled me in choirs, musicals and finally my own private voice lessons. Private voice lessons opened up a whole new world for me and grew my confidence. Soon I was enrolled in the high school arts conservatory New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts or NOCCA for short. This incredible opportunity prepared me for a spot at The Boston Conservatory where I received a BFA in Musical Theatre. Shortly after graduating I went back home to New Orleans where I began performing with a wide assortment of professional bands singing everything from jazz, soul, funk, pop, rock, musicals, kids music, and more. It was a wild and exciting time where I learned to lead bands and work as a professional in the music industry.
I grew an unbreakable confidence in myself as a vocalist and performer as I was constantly challenged working with some of the best musicians New Orleans had to offer and singing for audiences from all over the globe. Soon, I was being asked after shows if I would teach singing lessons and thus began my entry into my passion for teaching others how to use their voice. After 10 years of performing professionally and teaching voice in my hometown, I decided to move to Orlando to be closer to my family. In Orlando, I had the incredible opportunity to work with Disney World Resorts at the Disney Springs park as a featured performer on their outdoor stages. Unfortunately, the global pandemic hit and my time at Disney was cut short.
In 2021, I setup an official residence in Atlanta and reopened my voice and entertainment studio but now with a focus on how I can give back. While I still love to perform, my passion has truly evolved into being a teacher and coach. I’m so excited to be a part of this thriving creative community as a professional vocalist, actor, performer and teacher.
Who should join my studio?
I teach students of all ages and levels, starting from age 7 and beyond. The only essential requirement you need to bring to the table is dedication. Becoming a better singer, actor, or speaker takes time and effort, so a spirit of dedication to the learning process is absolutely crucial.
My studio is ideal for students who are interested in discovering what makes them unique as performers and who have a genuine interest in building rock-solid technique. I am passionate about creating memorable voices and performers, and I am eager to work with individuals who are willing to dive deep and share their expression and authenticity with the world.
To me, there's nothing more alluring and riveting in the performing arts than witnessing someone tap into their "inner wild." That's why my studio is dedicated not only to building strong voices but also to nurturing voices that become hallmarks of individuality and creativity. If you're ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, growth, and artistic expression, my studio is the perfect place to unlock your true potential.
