Ashley started piano at the age of 4 and since then has always had music in her life. She studied piano at UBC with Ryo Yanigitani and Dr. Terence Dawson. While there, she followed her intrigue of the voice and ended up doing a collaboration with many a musician- from French Horn to Opera, and even somehow found herself on a harpsichord accompanying early music singers. This led her to the Master’s Degree with Dr.Graeme Langager, with whom she helped teach/organize hundreds of singers in the several vocal programs UBC has to offer. Ashley was also a member of the Phoenix Chamber Choir from Vancouver, also led by Dr.Graeme Langager.
Ashley also loves teaching pop/jazz and composing in her free time. She cannot wait to get you started in whichever musical direction you choose to explore.
