You should expect to learn all vocal techniques just the same as any student but we fine tune your technique balance to suit the desired sound for different genres. We cannot just stop at the sound, the full performance has to be explored so we go over musical tools to enhance performance vocally as well as acting though the song, staging, guestures, and facials.

I don't just train the voice, I train the singer. We won't do 37 scales and exercises. We will learn how to isolate muscle settings and recreate.

You'll learn how to create any vocal blend you desire, and you'll be able to do it on cue. No more mystery. No more wondering how things work, and hoping they do when you get on stage! If you really want to understand your voice, or you're a beginner and need help starting from scratch, we can do it here. :)

You will learn music that interests you, as well as, be exposed to genres and music styles you might not be privy to. Your vocal health is of utmost importance to me and we will focus on developing a resonate tone, free of unnecessary tension; In addition to, strengthening your diaphragmatic breathing techniques and aligning your body position.
