September 2013

Hi, there! My name is Leigh and I can't wait to work with you! I've been singing my whole life, and have been teaching since 2013. I have loved helping my students learn the basics of singing, find confidence in their body and voice, and, most importantly, have fun!

I have a Bachelor of Music degree in vocal performance from the University of Southern California, and I am about to graduate with a Master of Music degree in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts.

I believe singing is all about the connection of body and soul, and that a little bit of technique can go a long way, no matter what repertoire you're studying.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Leigh is very professional and made me feel at ease at the same time. My first lesson was so enjoyable, and she was encouraging all the way. Cannot wait until next time.

Leigh has a great deal of knowledge and experience and was able to help me build my technical skill and my confidence. She is a great teacher and I highly recommend her.
