*** Lesson Details ***
I believe singing should be fun and not scary. The first thing we do at a lesson is put you at ease. I focus on confidence, increasing range, breathing techniques and vocal placement. We start on songs designed to help singers have confidence in their abilities. I teach beginners to advance, kids to adults. Believe in yourself and we can make beautiful music together!!!

*** Studio Equipment ***
