I am the most effective voice and performance coach. No bells, no whistles, just GUARANTEED RESULTS. If your voice isn't becoming to you, you should be coming to me! I am the founder and director of the Pullman Jazz Society and have been the private vocal coach for multiple contestants on American Idol, America's Got Talent, The Voice and several other vocal competitions spanning over 10 countries.
I am available 24 hours a day for online coaching and as early as 6:00 am for in-person sessions.
*Please note that 15-minute sessions are ONLY available for Skype. In-person sessions must be a minimum of 30 minutes. 46 minute option is ONLY for 7:30 am Early Bird lessons at my Hyde Park location Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 61-minute sessions are ONLY available for groups of 3 or more people in the same class session. The reduced rate is PER PERSON. Please contact me to inquire about when these sessions are available if you don't have at least 2 additional people to accompany you.
My approach is designed to train and condition the entire body as an instrument, not just the oral portion of the voice.
My method of assessing and meeting the needs of each student enables me to assist them in bringing out the very best in their capabilities. If you desire quality, effectiveness and noticeable improvement in your singing, writing, public speaking or overall performance, then I am the coach for you!
Not only do I promise results, I guarantee them! If you follow my specific instructions, I assure you that you and others will hear the difference.
Whether you are a beginner or professional, I make sure that you are comfortable and have a great time while learning. I am compassionate and flexible with your needs so feel free to let me know what you want from your lessons and we can work towards your goal to your satisfaction.
I have been trained in Classical, Appoggio, jazz/improv, Seth Riggs' speech-level singing and other methodologies of singing and speaking.
ATTENTION ALL PUBLIC SPEAKERS!
Are you nervous in front of a crowd?
Is your voice weak?
Do you forget your speeches?
Do you lack self-confidence?
Do you want to command the stage and captivate your audience?
If the answer is "yes" to any of the above, then you need my assistance. I will empower you with the tools you need to deliver the best performance.
I currently have multiple recordings mainstream rotation (under an alias) and am highly-acclaimed by many jazz, pop, r&b and hip-hop notables. I am also a NESTA certified wellness coach. I have the privilege of being a classically-trained pianist and vocalist, having studied at Sherwood Conservatory of Music, Vandercook College of Music, The Second City, University of Chicago, ETA Performing Arts Center and many other fine institutions.
My five-octave vocal range, impressive whistle-register and fine-tuned ear have afforded me opportunities to work with many popular artists. Additionally, I sing in seven languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Mandarin and Latin) and am adept in aiding my students in overcoming speech impediments and enhancing their own vocal range.
I also specialize in post-surgical voice re-immersion and students with special needs including down syndrome, autism and speech impediments.
My methodology helps students feel comfortable and each session is tailor-made to the student's individual needs.
Children love working with me because I make learning fun and they have a high retention rate of the techniques that I teach them. I am easygoing, funny and offer a minimalistic casual and relaxed environment for everyone.
My adult students have a blast because our lessons feel more like a friendly visit. I pull your potential to the forefront and together we create perfection.
I am excellent at preparing people for public speaking engagements, competitions, showcases and concerts and even help develop a winning show lineup and presentation.
Group classes are also available.
If your voice isn't becoming to you, you should be coming to me!
*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is tailor-made to suit the student's individual needs. A custom lesson plan will be made for each student on a case-by-case basis. No instruments are used in my lessons, as I train the voice to be a standalone instrument.
If you choose Skype lessons, please make sure that your system is functioning properly, that you know how to use the platform, that you have a good internet connection and that you are logged in on time, as no concessions will be made for technical difficulties.
Our time together is very valuable. If you are not on time for your session, the missed portion will not be made up at the end of the session. If I am not on time, I will make up the missed portion at the end of the session or alternate agreed-upon time. No exceptions or make-up sessions will be made for illness, weather, transportation issues (including car trouble), or any other short-notice reason. Rescheduled lessons must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance and must be made up within the calendar week of the original lesson. If it is not made up within that week, it will still count as a paid session and cannot be made up at a later time.
