Lerina’s teaching philosophy is based on exploring voice and allowing every student to become the best they can. To have the freedom to express themselves through their voice, to explore the endless possibilities the voice has to offer, but also to experience the voice in full.
The aim is to make music, to understand music, to know my instrument and to keep exploring, experiencing & expressing!
