Hi there! : )

I would LOVE to hear you sing! I consider it a true honor and gift whenever someone share's his or her voice with me. Singing can sometimes feel vulnerable. Letting someone hear you sing can be scary, but it can also be exciting, freeing and inspirational!

When you sing with me, it is my first goal to make sure that you feel safe and secure to make whatever good or bad sounds you want! (I encourage mistakes because that's how you learn. Don't worry, I'll make them with you!)

My second goal is to always maintain and improve the passion and confidence within you - and not just with singing but for your personal identity. I want you to always love yourself, love your voice, and to let your beautiful voice be heard!

My third goal is to work technique! I have a Master's in Musical Theatre, a Bachelor's in Vocal Performance and three years teaching experience, so we will work together to get the best and most comfortable sound for you!

My fourth and final goal is to have fun!!! That's what life is all about!

About Leslie S.

Hi, friends! I am a down-to-earth, fun and loving girl, straight from the wonderful city of New Orleans! I have a Master's in Musical Theatre from Oklahoma City University (same school Kristin Chenoweth and Kelli O'Hara went to) and a Bachelor's in Voice from The University of Southern Mississippi. My aim is to give my students a healthy, easily-produced, and beautiful singing voice that they can translate into any genre, all while having fun and feeling confident!

I currently work as an actor in the film industry, and I teach voice. I've done over 100 commercials and industrials and over 25 musical productions. I am happily married to an Army guy and I am a strong believer in the Lord. (If you aren't, that's ok. I don't push that on my students.) I love teaching and guiding people of all ages, and in my spare time I enjoy salsa dancing with my husband, cooking and eating yummy foods, hiking, gardening, puzzles, and hanging out with my friends and family.

I'm a people person so I get along with everybody. I want my students to feel safe, happy and confident in their voice lessons, and I will do whatever it takes to ensure that! There may even be candy or pastries involved if you're lucky LOL!

Leslie is an incredible voice teacher. She is an upbeat , positive , fun teacher ! She has great educational information about vocal strategies and knows just how to get the right sounds out of me! She is also incredibly encouraging and a great communicator about how I can improve. She has made a huge difference in my singing!

My little cousin received voice lessons from Leslie. We looked everywhere for a professional teacher who would work with our busy schedule. No luck, til we found Leslie. She was the perfect fit! She is extremely passionate with improving the gift of voice! In addition to her vast knowledge and professionalism, she is a joy to work with. My cousin absolutely enjoyed working with her; he’s shy and takes a while to loosen up to new people. I highly recommend Leslie for anyone who wishes to improve their gifts, and enjoy the learning experience she offers!

Central Junior High

I got to teach middle schoolers here! It was a wonderful experience and I think we all learned a lot. We studied sight-singing, choral music for choir and competitions, and solo music in classical, sacred and musical theatre! I didn't get to stay long because I moved, but those kids definitely made an impression in my heart.
