My singing lessons have been very helpful in my attempting to become a better singer. Phyllis tailors the lessons to accommodate near term needs as well as considering the long term goals. Therefore every lesson is unique to some degree. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Great Teacher

Phyllis is the best singing teacher I have ever had. She is completely knowledgeable about technique and personalizes each class for her students. Phyllis is so sweet, and believes that there is a singing voice inside of all of us. Since I have started taking lessons with her, my range has expanded and not only that, I have gained new knowledge about sheet music that I had never heard before. I would highly recommend choosing her as your teacher.
