If you take singing lessons with me, you can expect to be able to sing well with a good range and added texture to your voice. You will also have a basic understanding of how music works and how to follow the directions that appear in written music. I use vocal and breathing exercises to strengthen and build your foundation. I let the student choose the music that they would like to sing as we learn and practice the concepts with all styles of music. There are many choices from pop, country, broadway, show tunes, Christian, and classical music that the student can sing. I believe that lessons should be take every week as it keeps the learning progress going and keeps the interest of the student. If you are taking singing lessons, I highly recommend taking an instrument along with it. It helps the understanding of how music works and how to read music. I believe lessons should be fun but also hard work.
I have taught vocal music since 1971. I also directed the Colorado Springs Children's Chorale. Over the years my choirs have competed and received 1 ratings which is the highest. Some of my students have auditioned for The Voice and American Idol. I also was the Director of Colorado You Got Talent in 2013
I teach voice lessons for youth and adults, grounded in a love of music and healthy understanding and use of the voice. During lessons, we explore the possibilities of your voice, learning how it works, how to take care of it, how to use if more efficiently, and how to make new, beautiful sounds. Each lesson is tailored to you, with exercises chosen or created to help you develop the skills you need to reach your goals. We work together to choose songs that you love and can sing wonderfully!
