Hi! my name is Cinnamon also known as "La Canela". I was born in the Bronx, New York to Puerto Rican parents and am now living in Los Angles, CA. I am a Salsera Singer Songwriter with a focus in health, music and performance. I love to perform, compose, sing, play piano, guitar, double bass, and latin percussion. I have a passion for performing and teaching music connecting it to our human health. One of my favorite things to do is play latin percussion instruments because they connect me to my raices (roots ) teaching me resilience and how to simply "let go" (cliche) and be free. There is something so empowering about banging on those instruments. (Insert smile).
I spent the first 23 years of my career as a nurse in many healthcare settings and always added music to everything. Now, I am focussed on bringing health, music and performance into one space daily. I attended BOCES School of Nursing in New York , Duke University in North Carolina, The Herb Alpert Music Academy in Los Angeles and am currently working on further academic studies in Latin Caribbean and World music. My classes are fun, educational and thought provoking. They will invite you, uplift you and inspire you to love music!
Are you looking to add music into your daily life ? Are you searching for peace and tranquility intentionally? Are you interested in learing a new instrument or the logic of music? Perhaps you are looking to create peaceful moments through music or just create focus time doing something rewarding. One study showed that sound has a direct impact on our cells. Our body is literally changed by the sound it experiences. Why not intentionally add music and sound into your daily routine and experience the peacefulness and positive change it brings?
If you are ready then join me for amazing classes, community and sound. Let's make intentional spaces that incorporate health, music and performance together.
See you Soon!
