Bio: Holistic voice training with emphasis on individualized instruction, comprehensive musical development, self-inquiry and wellness.
Each student presents a unique set of skills and needs, and therefore deserves an individualized program of study. My eclectic teaching style addresses musicianship, physical freedom, technical skills, emotional expressiveness, and all the other variables that come into play in singing. My goal is to help students find and develop their own unique voice. In addition to my training as a voice pedagogue, I am a licensed teacher of Body Mapping and recently published The Breathing Book for Singers (Mountain Peak Music). I draw upon numerous somatic techniques to help students find physical freedom.
I encourage students to explore and transcend their limits, experience music and art of many types, work in collaborative relationships, and strive for their personal best. Although I help students appreciate their gifts and guide the development of vocal skills and learning strategies, the final responsibility for realizing their goals, and thus the final achievement, is their own.
