I studied at the University of Oregon School of Music as a singer, and have sung in various choirs and opera performances for years. I also play the violin, and have developed my inner ear by practice and tuning the violin, my voice, and other string instruments. With practice, a sense of relative pitch can be developed, especially in a group, with other musicians. In private lessons, I've found, a good technique is to reproduce piano pitches from memory. Another is to try and tune stringed instruments by ear, and relative harmonies.
I studied at the School of Music at the University of Oregon, and also at the Conservatory of Music in Perugia, Italy. I can sight read music, and have sung with various choirs for many years. I can play the piano somewhat, but really specialize in Voice Performance. I also sang with the Eugene Opera company and the Oregon Symphony Choir. I directed a children's choir.
