Overview

I believe that everyone can enjoy singing. Not everyone gets the opportunity to sing at the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway, or other world famous music halls. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness. If you have never tried to sing for fear of embarrassment, or If you love to sing and want to learn more or if you just want to brush up and fine tune, my studio is the place for you. Nonetheless, 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 long term. 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 put forth 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 make new vocal discoveries.

Further, I strive to see them share their hard earned talents and gifts with their communities and abroad.

With this understanding I endeavor to provide students with a classroom environment that allows for a variety of learning styles to better meet the needs of my students.

Topnotch

I am very happy I started lessons with Dr McBride. He passes on his knowledge and experience in a straightforward gentle, and professional manner. In a short time I have noted positive progress and improvement from his pearls of wisdom and assigned vocal exercises. Recommended without any reservation!
