Gwen currently studies with Professor Robert Swensen at the Eastman School of Music, where she won the 2019 Eastman Voice Department Concerto Competition. 


Presented with the Ornest Award for her “excellence in academic and musical study,” Gwen is equally at home on the operatic stage and in the concert hall.


As a voice teacher, Gwen prioritizes the individual needs of each student in order to build a solid foundation of musicality, singing technique, and self-confidence.
