She trained with local and international tutors in classical, jazz, folklore and contemporary dance and also musical theatre. She wrote a play inspired by the life of Judy Garland entitled "Muñecas" with original music and choreography and after that was selected by Chet Walker to study with the Interchange Project scholarship in Buenos Aires in 2003. Then she commenced her studies in vocal technique with Roxana Amed. She performed with different bands over the next years, and was also part of the argentine tribute to Janis Joplin in Buenos Aires.

She moved to Switzerland in 2011 and continued her training with Sofia Pollak (Zurich Music Conservatory) and took classes of Gaga dance in Tanzwerk. She ran workshops in Tanzhaus Zurich and performed in different places. She was selected as background vocals for the Swiss musician Mark Sway. She has been living in Malta for five months and currently works as a SOM tutor at La Voix academy, teaches dance at the academy of Brigitte Gauci Borda and has recently joined Masquerade School for the Performing Arts.
Singing Lessons - SOM Technique (Sound of Movement)
Vocal technique does not simply define a good singer. Physical training is also highly required in order to perform. We also need to build our sound to create an authentic expression. SOM helps us become aware of the resources inside us. It helps us improve our vocal skills and helps us develop new ones, which are connected to our every personal need. It is a technique that integrates the entire function of body and mind through intuition. Beyond the domain of a mechanical system, we count on original tools to rediscover expression. Simulating our individual potential we optimize our interpretation. Internal movement such as pulse vibration and rhythm are the key in the construction of our own sound as well as an identity as singers and artists.
