*Accepting new students for Fall 2020!*
I believe that music should be a fun and rewarding activity for all ages to enjoy. It is a means of expression and creativity that can move and inspire the audience. In my studio the student will get personal and individualized attention where they can learn in a manner that best suits them in a safe and positive environment. My lessons foster individuality, passion, and confidence, so that the student can be excited to share their voice with others. My teaching is always focused, first and foremost, around a healthy vocal technique and body integration, using methods of Alexander Technique and meditation of the mind in coordination with voice instruction. I strive for each student to understand their voice and how it works, so the language I use is centered in anatomy and physiology. I spend a lot of time on efficient body breathing that stems from appropriate alignment and movement. I believe it is never too late for someone to learn the fundamentals of music, so in my lessons each student will have the ability to learn the necessary tools for music literacy including pitch, rhythm, and dynamics. Enabling students to grow as performers and be proud of their art is the most important aspect of their study of voice. While my training is in classical voice and opera, I also offer lessons in musical theater, light jazz, and popular music.
