2009

My background in music education has given me a unique perspective on how to build people up through the art of singing. It is such a satisfying and empowering activity that can help anyone to grow and become more confident and self-assured. While my areas of focus include musical theater, jazz, and pop singing, I am happy to work with singers of a variety of styles. I also am an active songwriter, and enjoy incorporating songwriting principles into voice lessons if so desired.

Some of the basics covered in the lessons include:

- Proper Breathing Technique
- Physical Endurance
- Relaxation
- Projection & Diction
- Phrasing & Expression

I would love the opportunity to work with you!
