My name is LaKedria Lozano. I completed my undergraduate work at West Liberty University earning my Bachelors’ degree in 2009 where my focus was choral and vocal music education and a Masters degree in vocal performance from Marshall University in 2011. I then switched my focus to music education and teaching adult learners as well as K-12.
I completed a certificate in Higher Education in adult learning from Capella University in 2013 and earned a second Masters degree in education from Concordia University 2015 with a specialization in curriculum and institution.
In the education sector I have developed several online courses in music, and have been a subject matter expert to create and edit music lessons. I have extensive experience as a soloist, chorister, and teacher; I have been featured as a soloist for many works including Vivaldi's Gloria, Alan Hovhaness’ Glory to God, Handel's Messiah, Theodore Dubois Seven Last Words of Christ, and several world premieres by rising composers.
I maintain professional memberships in National Association of Teachers of singing (NATS), National Association for the Study and Performance of African American Music (NSPAAM), National Association for Music Education (NAfME), and American Choral Directors Association (ACDA).
In addition to performing, I served as an intern with the American Foundation for the Blind in the information and referral department. I also spent 2 years as a customer service associate for Amazon.
I serve on the faculty of Braille Beats; a 7-10 day Fine Arts Intensive Program in Lapeer MI for Blind and Visually Impaired students ages 9-Adult with an interest in the fine arts. I teach voice, choir and music theory.
Currently I am a 2nd grade teacher at Aurora Academy in Toledo OH.
I live with my wonderful husband Don, my beautiful daughter Esperanza and our 4 fur children - Lilla, Skye, Harmony and Bo. In my spare time (when I get to breathe) I enjoy knitting, reading and a lot of family time.
I am glad to be part of a wonderful company and helping others achieve their dreams.
