As a former child performer who debuted with the Portland Opera at the age of 10, Good-Mojab understands the vocal and developmental needs of children and adolescents who are passionate about singing at a time when their instruments—their voices and bodies—are still maturing and in need of protection.
She also plays the piano, which aids her significantly in her musical endeavors, from songwriting to teaching. Her enjoyment of and experience performing across a variety of musical genres makes her a versatile instructor who can meet the needs of students of all ages with diverse vocal and musical interests of their own.
