Whether you like Mozart or Carrie Underwood, good singing is good singing. The fundamentals I teach focus on healthy, sustainable, easy production that you can use in choir AND at karaoke night.
I am currently working on a Master of Music at the University of Michigan, and I have a B.M. from the University of Southern California. Although my focus is on operatic and classical singing, I have sung musical theater, jazz, and pop as well - I was in an A Capella group in college and have sung with a few local oldies and hip-hop bands. So whether you are considering a career in music or just want to brush up your shower singing, give me a call!

*** Lesson Details ***
30, 45, and 60-minute lessons available; 30-minute lessons recommended for children ages 8-14. Lessons will begin with vocalization with specialized warm-ups targeting technique, such as proper breath control, vowel clarity, and relaxed singing. The second half of lessons will be spent on repertoire, e.g. music. You may choose your own music based on preference or upcoming events, or ask for suggestions.
Three items to bring to lessons:
A three-ring binder with loose leaf paper for notes and music
*** Travel Equipment ***
A keyboard or piano must be available for in-home lessons. Students should also keep a lesson binder or notebook with paper for writing. Some music may have to be purchased, but I can supply some, especially in classical/musical theater genres.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing, but I am also experienced in modern styles, such as musical theater, blues, and pop.
