*** Lesson Details ***
If you are interested in improving your singing as a soloist in either popular or classical music, just looking to improve your hymn singing, or a complete beginner, I can help you. I can also coach you in a musical performance or help you to improve your speaking voice. I teach with enthusiasm and always find that encouragement and constructive criticism works best. A large part of a successful performance is confidence. I have found real joy in singing and in music and I like to share that through performing and teaching.

When we begin, I find it important to get to know each other and to spend some time talking about why you chose to study and what you hope to learn. Then we can vocalize and get a since of your voice. I’d also like you to bring a song you can sing for me. If you have a recording of the accompaniment, that would be preferable. I will provide a CD player and will use a piano or a keyboard to work with you. I stress the importance of practice in strengthening a person’s voice.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Electronic keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in breath support, diction, easy production and beautiful tone.
