Hi! I've been toying with music since school years, but it was only 5 years ago when I started taking professional singing classes from SLS (Speech Level Singing) vocal coach. I'm being trained for jazz (mostly swing), contemporary musical theatre (mostly Broadway plays), rock, and pop. I love being on stage, and I have a natural, intuitive stage presence. I so far performed at some jazz, and blues jam sessions in Europe, and I did join a lot of live band karaoke events here in San Diego.
My vocal coach, and I are separated by 9 hours time difference but I still keep up with having at least two-three classes per week. I care a lot for my vocal health, and I schedule my private life around my classes so I guess the level of commitment is pretty high. I'm still learning how to read music, it's a process, so is my ear training.
I want to find myself on stage performing in the musical, but I also want to collaborate with musicians of all genres, and backgrounds to broaden my perspectives, and to grow up professionally. I know what I want, but I also want to stay open-minded, and I want to learn as much as I can from other musicians. I'd love to be in a band filled with passionated musicians who, no matter what their level is, and despite facing life realities would love to drop everything for music, or at least have the desire, or dream to do so. Someone who don't mind staying late at the rehearsal to make sure things are being done right. Someone with patience to practice, and to let other get where they need to be. Someone who cares about quality. I myself have plenty to learn, but despite inner motivation it'd be really great to be in a place where everyone else would be way better than me to push me to learn faster, and more efficient.
