Wendy Goulart

Wendy has been teaching voice for over 20 years and drums for over 12 years.

Prior to teaching, Wendy sang in bands all over California. She played in such places as the Troubadour and the Wiskey a go-go in Hollywood opening for bands: Ratt, Quiet Riot, Dokken, and many more. She was lead vocalist in a rock group that toured Asia in a USO show.

Wendy was fortunate enough to study under an opera coach in 1993, a gospel recording star in 1988, and a professor of music at Harbor College in L.A. for private vocal instruction.

When Wendy is not singing, teaching or playing drums or piano, she likes to read, knit, swim, hike and travel. She also spends as much of her time with her adult son who has become an excellent drummer. A classic example of a pupil surpassing the teacher!
