I help singers, like you, realize their complete vocal potential through holistic and customized training of the voice, body and mind.
My teaching is about giving you tools to find your authentic voice and get back your power. It's so easy for us singers to get caught up with how we're sounding, instead of understanding the building blocks of what we need to do to achieve our ideal sound. We wonder why we aren't getting consistent results, and why vocal freedom seems out of reach.
Whether your dreams are big, or if you are excited to learn, I would love to be part of your vocal journey and help you find the consistency and confidence in your singing."
Along with my career as an opera singer, I taught private voice for over 15 years. I have a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance from Westminster Choir college and a Master degree in Opera Performance from The University of Texas in Austin.
