Take a deep inhale.....relax your jaw and exhale on "aaahhh". That's how we begin, by relaxing and finding your "aaahh!" space with exercises designed to connect the heart to the science of voice & movement. Let me help you find an easier way to promote your best posture, easiest breath support, best resonance and pitch control. My teaching style is infused with the knowledge that students of voice must be treated with great care and encouragement. Let me help you release your authentic voice!
I first studied and performed jazz. I am very comfortable with standards. I studied classical in college. I believe that classical training is necessary to have a full understanding of your instrument, the same way you would train with sprints if you wish to become a cross country runner. From there personality and tons of practice are key to success in singing.
