I am passionate about guiding each student to explore his singing voice and full artistic expression in both Contemporary Commercial Music and Classical repertoire. Emphasis is placed on functional somatic voice work, and healthy vocal technique through successful breath support, effective vowel modification, and increased self-awareness and freedom in the body. I also incorporate Yoga principles of body awareness, breath training, as well as Andover Education and Alexander technique principles into my comprehensive vocal training style, as I believe kinesthetic body awareness is integral to successful singing. In addition, I delight in engaging each student’s imagination and musicality so that they may express the composer’s intentions with their own authentic voice.
