Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

In 1998, upon college graduation, I began teaching private vocal lessons. I have taught for two schools of music, First United Methodist Music School in Texarkana, Arkansas and Burbank Music Academy in Burbank, California. In 2007, I began offering vocal lessons online through Skype. My current home studio is located in Manhattan.

I have the honor of working with some amazing students in my studio including, American Idol finalist;Rachel Hale, Singer/Song writer, Sara Skinner: Actress Molly Quinn; Actor, John R Colley; Ark-La-Tex's country star Klancy Johnson; singer/actress;Tara Clem and many more.

I am dedicated to helping people explore their vocal talents and skills in the entertainment field. My focus centers on treating your entire body - not only your voice - as a tool for performance. This not only includes lessons for voice (speaking & singing) but career and life coaching.In performance often your body will want to work against itself. Your body become tense, you over think, and worry. My motivation is to help you move to a place where you can over come your insecurities and fears by giving you an understanding of vocal production and its connection to your body and mind. My desire is to lead you to being your best.

Here are some examples of how I can help: increasing vocal range, eliminating "breaks" in your range, supported sound, natural breathing techniques, body alignment, conquering performance anxiety, stage presence, song interpretation, college preparation, smart goal setting, increased creativity, and positive internal reprogramming.

I've been a member of the National Association of Teacher's of singing for 6 years and am also a member of Actors Equity, SAG-AFTRA, NARAS (the Grammy's) and a lifetime member for the music fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota. I hold 2 Fine Arts degrees in Music and Drama as well as a Bachelor of Applied Arts; Sciences in Administrative Leadership with an emphasis in Psychology.

*** Lesson Details ***
In your lesson, I start where you're at. I identify immediate problems and then put you on a regimen to move you toward your vocal best. I am a stern but encouraging teacher. I expect a vocalist to practice.

Whether a beginner or seasoned performer. My goal is to get your voice to a place of ease in production and to articulate your performance in a way to connect with your audience.
Each lesson is recorded and emailed so you can listen and practice. Practicing is imperative to building your vocal muscles and performance skills.

Here is a list of other benefits that I provide: ear training, finding your true voice - not just an imitation of your favorite vocalist, smart career goal setting, overcoming stage fright, audition/interview techniques, positive self-programming, finding your acting "type"career marketing strategies, how to work "where you're at", scene study, monologue preparation, and a building basic musical theatre audition book.

The following is available in my studio:
-an Mp3 of your warm-ups either on CD (you provide), flash drive (you supply) or a download via website,
-music track editing (includes cutting, tempo changes, key adjustments, etc. (I usually do music editing outside of a lesson.),
-stage choreography/blocking,
-microphone training,
-and studio recording training.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yeti microphone, H4n Zoom recorder, Audio Technica AT 3035 microphone. 
-Music Editing Software: Pro-Tools, Cubase LX, Audacity, Garageband, Sony Sound Forge
-Video Editing Software: Final Cut, Sony Vegas, iMovieI
-I also utilize Sing & See in my studio for vocal analysis when needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I currently do not travel to homes.

*** Specialties ***
Along with the guidance and genius of Dallas-based vocal teacher and composer, Bill Bauer, I have developed a safe, powerful technique in the art of vocal production for all vocal genres. Some of which include supported belt singing and Bel Canto-style singing.

I am also a trained Opera singer and jazz vocalist and have trained in Vocal Pedagogy both in college as well as with the National Association of Teachers of Singing of which I am a full member.

I am a former Miss Louisiana and talent winner at Miss America. I have judged numerous local, state, and national pageants across the country.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back and friendly, and I want you or your child to be as comfortable as possible during our lessons. You or your child will develop confidence and musical intelligence. I will make your lessons fun, enjoyable, and effective. Boredom is not an option! Music is fun... let's keep it that way.

The teaching methods I use will be custom-tailored to your individual needs, personality and specific musical goals. If it's guitar or piano you want to learn, I want to get you playing exactly what you want to be playing as soon as possible. That's what you're here for, and that's what I'm here for. I will make it happen. If it's songwriting that you want to learn, I will help you access that place inside of you that is dying to express itself creatively, and will teach you techniques to harness that energy and translate it successfully into musical expression.

You can expect to learn all the basics of music theory, proper playing techniques, improvisation and spontaneous musical expression, and I will help you develop your "ear" so you can figure out songs you like just by listening to them. This is all about you and your goals, and I want you to achieve them in a fun and engaging way.
