I am a full-time professional singer. Since I travel for work, online lessons are the best way for me to teach students who want to learn from a working singer.

I have a BM in Vocal Performance from the University of Houston and a MM in Vocal Performance from the University of Tennessee.

My lessons provide a safe learning environment. Students are encouraged to take chances and make mistakes.

I believe that all people have a voice that can make beautiful sounds in singing but that many have yet to learn how to use the voice in a way that reveals this potential. One of my primary principles of singing is that there is no discomfort in healthy singing. The musical goals I set for my students are for them to sing with the best sound for their individual voice and to create this sound with a healthy use of the body and mind.

Maxwell is a wonderful teacher and artist. As a colleague, I truly respect the joy and care she takes with her students. Having personally seen progress in her students, I highly recommend studying with her. She is a true professional.

Maxwell is a tremendously gifted singer and teacher. Her understanding and knowledge of the human voice is vast - and she is very professional and caring. Despite her tremendous knowledge and depth of understanding, she is able to distill information simply and easily - and is an excellent communicator and listener.
