I'm a singer and multi-instrumentalist who graduated from The Greatbatch School of Music at Houghton College with a degree in Music Education focusing on vocal/choral studies. I have always loved music and creating musical communities with people who also love music. Singing is an integral part of so many people's lives and I want to make sure that those who love singing can sing their whole lives! Any genre/style of music needs proper training and technique so that the voice stays healthy and strong. My focus is on giving students help with proper breathing techniques and building from there. I love the scientific side of singing, so whether you want to hear how things work or you are more of an image-based learner, I'd love to help you improve one of your skills and passions!Show More
