I believe that everyone has the ability to sing, even the student with the most vocal faults. Will everyone that I teach go on to sing at the Metropolitan Opera, American Idol, or any other world famous music hall? Realistically speaking, the answer is no. However, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness.
I take time to listen to a student's instrument and lesson by lesson determine what is the best course of positive action that I and the student need to take in order to achieve the best results not just for today but for the longterm future. I want my students to enjoy singing, sing excellently, but also have longevity with their voices.
Voice study requires discipline, patience, and the desire to be better everyday! There is a good deal of effort that the student must carry on their own in that they must practice what they have been taught and come prepared to lessons. My responsibility it to take the students voice and help them get it in shape. I love helping students discover something new that they did not know they could do.
