About the teacher:
Praised for her effortless, warm tone and charming stage presence, soprano Ivy Zhou performs with opera companies across the country and is active in the Seattle area as a church musician, teacher, and recitalist. In May of 2021, she made her debut with Opera Columbus singing Musetta in La Bohème. Despite the pandemic, she remained active during the 2020 season, which saw her as Kenzie in Seattle Opera’s filmed production of Earth to Kenzie, the Voice in Ricky Ian Gordon’s chamber piece Orpheus and Euridice with Dacha Theater (also filmed), and featured in various virtual recitals with organizations such as Wear Yellow Proudly and Capitol Arts Workshop.
Parallel to her active singing career, Ivy has worked with children of many age groups in diverse capacities for over 10 years: as a classroom teacher, tutor, nanny, voice teacher, and choir director. She currently teaches the Beginner (K-2) and Intermediate (gr. 3-5) classes at Dream Music Theatre, based in Bellevue, WA, focusing on music fundamentals, musical theatre repertoire, and performance skills. She also maintains her own private voice studio. She loves helping kids develop healthy singing habits and musicianship and to share their unique voice as performers, while never losing sight of the fun in music making!
In her free time, she enjoys reading, picnics, art of all kinds, and spending time with her partner and her cat.
