I teach vocal technique to recording artists, singers interested in starting or joining bands, people looking to do musical theater, do some opera, and anyone who just wants to sound great around the campfire. My students learn how to embellish the things they like about their voices and make them sound unique, while at the same time defeating tension and poor vocal technique. I also work on shaping the whole performer, from stage presence to microphone control. My instrumental students work on both classical and modern music. If you are interested in learning how to read music, chords, charts, compose or just learn some basics I am happy to help you with that. Optional recitals are held two times a year. I have a Bachelors of Music, Vocal Performance at the University
