Subjects Taught Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Speaking Voice, Acting
Anybody can sing. That is my philosophy of teaching -- I have proven it to myself and to my students how true it is. If you can speak, you can sing!
I focus my lessons on building a strong understanding of the anatomy of the voice, self-awareness in your instrument, and confidence in your skill. I have experience in classical, opera, and musical theater styles, but that doesn't mean my students don't sing jazz, pop, or rock & roll! We start with the basics -- the classical teachings (breath and posture), and figure out how your voice works best. I emphasize technique in breathing and posture through a variety of stretching, relaxation, and yoga practices. In addition to learning a healthy vocal technique, your lessons will also incorporate other musical skills such as solfege (do re mi...like Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music), music theory, and foreign language skills using the International Phonetic Alphabet (it's really cool, trust me).
