Students will gain a deeper understanding of their voice using techniques and pedagogy in order to manage breath, gain resonance, sing with clear diction and perform with stage presence. Beginning students will learn important musicianship skills and music theory if needed. More advanced students will expand their repertoire and explore the artistry behind performance. It is my goal to help students discover their natural voice and unlock their full potential with an enjoyable experience.
