Tutoring Approach:

I believe, that every person has a very unique and special talent and everyone can sing, it is just society and our own psichology that brings us boundaries and thinking that we only can do certain things with our bodies and voices. I think that we all need to free our minds to wake up the creativity inside us and let everyone be natural and find themselves. It is all about being happy and true to yourself.
