Many of my students not only learn to sing, they also learn to write their own songs and record. However, if you want to learn to sing, we can do that.

My training took place with very special teachers, people who write, and sing for a living. Jai josel who worked for RCA, Jason Blume, who wrote for Brittney Spears, and Stephen Schwartz who wrote the Broadway Musical, Wicked.

I have a website which I will share with you after you enroll in my class. *** Lesson Details *** Every thing is a skill. Singing is ...
