Teaching since:
1991

First and foremost, I am a vocal performer myself, having performed in Italy, Germany, France, Sweden and Switzerland. I have had a successful tour of the Pacific, performing for our troops., and I have performed throughout the contiguous United States. I hold a bachelor of music degree from the North Carolina School of Arts, Winston-Salem, NC, and did a year of master's degree work at the famed Juilliard School in New York City.

Although classically trained, I also sing jazz, pop, R&B and gospel equally as well. I believe that I bring a rare perspective on music and feel uniquely qualified to teach/coach contemporary and classical singers. Students and parents will find my informances accessible, and I will inspire them to realize that their goals are attainable. During voice/coaching lessons, I will help students to improve their singing, maintain their skill level and keep their voice safe. Techniques are used to increase vocal power and control, improve tonal quality and diction, and correct pitch issues. Students are assisted with song interpretation, role preparation, repertoire selections, stage presence, use of stage space and pacing, and stamina. Students are provided on-site (performance) support and post performance reviews. Singing opportunities also may be identified and students are aided in preparing for auditions and recordings. By utilizing my strong teaching strategies and coaching techniques, one of my students, Dana Harper, participated on NBC's 2016 season of THE VOICE. She competed through the "battle" rounds of the competition.
