My musical life began during the "folk boom" of the 1960's. I began songwriting and performing during my high school years. Later I was a member of a folk-rock band called The Bean Angels. We preformed and recorded in the Iowa City, Iowa area. Later I attended Montana State University where I studied music education.

American jazz saxophonist and composer Charlie Parker said, Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. This sentiment shaped my views on music and its performance. One of my great pleasures in life is sharing an appreciation of music. I had always been a part of music. My father played trumpet, my mother could play guitar and carry a tune. They believed music was an important part of life so they started me on piano at 5 years old. And I've been playing that ever since. I started learning to sing in my middle school chorus when I was 11 years old. I really liked it and I liked it more when I would sing my mother and father's favorite songs and see them smile. So I listened to a lot of singers and vocalists ...

I've been teaching chorus and doing private voice lessons for almost 10 years. For the past years, my students in private singing lessons have gained a basic understanding of vocal anatomy and become more skilled in correct breathing technique, moving between vocal registers and producing balanced tone. I usually select an age appropriate song for my students to learn for each session, and each skill the students learned during the lessons will be applied to the singing of that song.

In my formal studies, I have trained with renowned voice teachers including Marlena Malas (vocal coach of Luciano Pavarotti) and Edith Bers. Through the years, I have built a vocal technique from the ground up which has allowed me to teach and guide students in their journey to improve their singing.
Learning to sing is a rewarding and worthwhile endeavor and the vocal technique I instill in students will enhance and develop range, resonance, tone quality, breathing, and musicianship. I am confident you will walk out of every lesson an improved and finer singer than before. Our sessions together will assist you in any genre you wish to sing in a healthy and confident manner.
