Hello!

My name is Brittani, and I have a passion for helping students feel empowered and confident through the use of their voice, whether personal or professional. As someone who has struggled with and recovered from a vocal pathology, I feel that I have a unique perspective on the emotional taxations and challenges that vocal work can bring up. I strive to use compassion and the "love and logic" methodology with all of my students. I am passionate about voice pedagogy and voice science, and use a more anatomically based approach in my teaching, rather than metaphorical. I received my master's degree in voice performance from the University of Northern Colorado in 2017, and hold a bachelor's in music education which I obtained from Colorado State University in 2013. I am a performing mezzo-soprano in a variety of genres, and I have a passion for teaching many different styles including classical, jazz, and musical theater.

I teach ages 12 and up, and I do teach with Tacoma Public Schools, which has FBI and WSP verified background checks.

She has a gift for observing her student and identifying the strengths and weaknesses in their vocal technique. She is then able to find the best ways to correct the weaknesses and enhance the strengths. I believe she can improve any one to be a better and more confident singer.
