Miss Cindy is a fun and insightful music instructor, performer and stage choreographer. Her initial training was classically, in piano and voice. She later directed youth choirs while attending Grant McEwan College in Edmonton, AB for her Dance Diploma. She then furthered her musical education at Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles, CA, with a strong focus on vocal training, where she found further opportunities to perform, and participate in recording projects.
She has since entertained in pop/rock bands, jazz trios, and musical theatre productions, where she was able to use her ability to act, dance and sing all on one stage. However, she equally enjoys developing, encouraging and promoting young talent. In 2013 she produced and directed the Okanagan Performing Arts Showcase, providing young emerging artists exposure and further experience ‘on stage’ and in studio. She currently performs as a back-up singer /dancer for the JOE COCKER EXPERIENCE, and lead singer in a local funk/rock band, and jazz trio.
Cindy has been teaching and ‘inspiring’ students for 16 years. She has choreographed stage movement for bands and theatre groups in Kelowna, taught musical theatre in Langley and has been called upon regularly to adjudicate teen talent competitions and hold workshops at local colleges on subjects such as the music business, approaches to song writing, sound therapy and understanding the mechanics of vocal production.
