Lesson Details

Classical Voice

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have been helping people realize their potential as a singer for over 5 years now. Along with being a vocal coach and teacher, I have over 10 years of performance experience in a variety of styles. In terms of jazz, I have studied with jazz greats such as Sunny Wilkinson, members of The New York Voices, Rosana Eckert, and more! I have also worked with many great pop and musical theater instructors such as Matt Edwards and Edrie Means. In 2018 I received my session 1 certification in contemporary commercial music from Shenandoah University.
Along with teaching a variety of styles, I am also a huge advocate of incorporating vocal health into my lessons. After recovering from vocal nodules in 2015 and studying with renowned speech-language pathologist Marci Rosenberg, I make sure my vocalists have the tools they need in order to stay vocally healthy. Every student is different, and so the path that each singer takes will be different than another. But with hard work, persistence, an open mind, (and a whole lot of fun), I look forward to helping you achieve your goals as a singer and musician!

Hello! I am a performer, voice teacher, and vocal coach who strives to help others experience their potential as a musician. I have studied with some jazz greats such as Sunny Wilkinson, The New York Voices, Rosana Eckert, Greg Jasperse, and more! I have also worked with many great pop and musical theater instructors such as Matt Edwards and Edrie Means. In 2018 I received my level 1 certification in contemporary commercial music from Shenandoah University. I have also studied vocal health with the world-renowned speech-pathologist and educator, Marci Rosenberg.

One of my greatest joys is helping others realize their potential as a vocalist. I strongly believe that with hard work and training, everyone can learn to sing well. My goal is to give students the tools they need in order to express themselves through singing. I work with beginning to advanced voice students.

While helping singers realize their potential, a big focus of my lessons includes vocal health. I want to give my students the knowledge they need in order to maintain their vocal health - whether at home or on the road. This will ultimately help them as a vocalist, musician, and a performer.

I look forward to talking with you more, and helping you reach your goals as a singer and musician!
