Tessa Espinosa

Tessa Espinosa, soprano, earned her Masters in Voice Performance in 2015 from the University of Northern Colorado, her Bachelors in Vocal Music Education in 2013 from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and returns to UNC Greeley in the Fall to begin her Doctor of the Arts in Voice Performance with a secondary emphasis in music theory. She has performed extensively throughout Louisiana, Colorado, and Germany to critical acclaim. Notable roles include Alice in the World Premiere of Grand Pré (UL Lafayette), Magda in Puccini's La Rondine, Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus, and Konstanze in Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail all with the University of Northern Colorado's Opera Theatre. Tessa has also performed frequently with Opera Fort Collins both in the chorus and as an Apprentice Artist from 2014-2015. She spent two summers with the UNC opera theatre performing in west Germany with Opera Classica Europa.  Most recently she spent a year living, working, and improving her German in Munich, Germany where she performed Rossini's Petite Messe Solenelle with the Junger Chor of the Akademischergesangverein in Munich. Tessa has been teaching voice and piano lessons since 2015 and loves it as much as she loves performing. 

Tessa teaches all ages at all levels and is happy to join the Magnolia Studios faculty team in Fort Collins, Summer 2017

I believe each student has individual needs and learning styles and will adapt lessons to best fit each one. Teaching voice is not one size fits all but every student can make significant progress in their craft with hard work and efficient practice. My students will learn basic music theory, foundational breathing and alignment for singing, compelling performance techniques, and overall confidence in their abilities as students and performers.
