Ariana Reyna, M.M.
Voice Instructor

Rio Grande City, Texas native Ariana Reyna began her musical journey at the age of four, singing at her church alongside her family. Ariana participated in numerous music and performance activities throughout her childhood and teenage years including voice, piano, and guitar lessons and recitals, church ministry, theater and dance. In 2001, the Reyna family founded a community choir and theater troupe titled Cantaré, meaning I will sing. As a member of this group, Ariana earned 12 years of experience singing, directing, choreographing and performing all over Texas. In addition to her work with Cantaré, Ariana was an active member in her high school band where she played oboe and flute. She competed in Solo and Ensemble as well as the All-Region and Area division of the Texas All-State Choir Competition. In 2008, Ariana moved to San Antonio, Texas to pursue a degree in Music Education at the University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA). During her time at UTSA, Ariana performed in 5 operas and competed at National Association of Teachers of Singing annually. She also performed as a soloist in recitals and choral settings. Following her time at UTSA, Ariana taught voice lessons in the Northside School District. In 2014, Ariana moved to Oklahoma City to pursue her graduate studies at Oklahoma City University (OCU). During her time in Oklahoma, Ariana performed both musical theater and operatic repertoire including Meg in Little Women and the lead role in Mozarts opera Magic Flute. In 2015, Ariana was invited to perform in the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival where she sang the role First Lady in Mozarts Magic Flute. While in Hawaii, she also had the opportunity to teach the Pre-Teen Division of the Festival. Ariana recently graduated OCU with High Honors and is now a Master of Music with a concentration in Opera Performance. Ariana will continue her training with voice professor, Dr. William Christensen and vocal coaches, Jan McDaniel and Robert Brewer. There is always something new to learn! Ariana has a true passion and love for teaching. She believes that teaching is one of life’s greatest callings and enjoys the process with each individual student. It is her goal to inspire, encourage, and guide her students to be the best version of themselves that they can be.
