Piano, Voice, Songwriting | Salt Lake

Ever since she was young, music has always been a part of Pax’s life. Growing up in Ohio, she took private voice and piano lessons and also sang in a professional youth choir. In high school, she sang in the top chamber choir and was involved in the school’s musical productions. She decided to continue her musical path by pursuing it in college. She holds a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and also two Minors in both Philosophy and Choral Conducting from Ohio University, where she graduated top of her class in the music program. She is well-versed in both the classical and musical theater genres, having studied English, German, French, and Italian art song, Opera, and both Golden Age and Contemporary Musical Theater. Pax has competed in many vocal competitions, placing in her region, and has performed in several operatic productions in principal roles. She also has a passion for choral music, singing with several choirs over the years. Pax is passionate about teaching people who love to sing and who want to better themselves as musicians. She believes music can be a creative outlet to expression for all ages and is excited to help singers find their true voice! Whether it’s learning Disney songs just for fun or preparing for an upcoming audition, Pax is ready to help! Her teaching strength lies in technique – she believes that proper technique lays the foundation for healthy singing. Paxton is excited not only to teach, but also to learn from her students! She believes there is always something to learn and that every person and experience has so much to offer. When she is not teaching music lessons, you can find her at the pool! She has been a lifeguard and certified swim instructor for the past five years. She loves anything to do with the water and is all about water safety! When it comes to teaching, Pax wants to help every student become their best self. She wants to teach both musicianship and skills that have a real-world application – whether this be structured discipline, confidence, being kind to yourself, or putting 100% into everything you do. The number one thing that she wants her students to take away from their lessons is that whatever path they might take with their music, they will always be musicians.

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
