Bio: I instruct beginning through advanced singers to achieve a free and healthy sound by exploring three interconnected aspects of singing — technical, musical and interpretive. The technical component includes the fundamentals of breath, posture, and resonance, important foundations for healthy singing. These are supported by musical qualities such as phrasing, aural skills, and music reading, as well as interpretive elements such as text analysis, diction, stage deportment and characterization. The result will assure a voice that is unique to each student. I maintain that voice instruction is most successful when it caters to the strengths, interests, and perspectives of the individual student. For instance, while one student may respond to a technical approach, another student may require the use of abstract imagery or a focus on interpretive elements to attain the desired result.
\nTeaching voice is a rewarding experience for me. Not only does it permit me to foster healthy, beautiful and passionate singing; but it also allows me to mentor young musicians as they grow as artists.
