I enjoyed lessons with Trish. She is always encouraging, always building. She had lessons preplanned but was always ready for questions.

She was a good teacher that I ever had. I had a short lesson with her but I was able to develop my skill that could help me understand more about singing and the techniques. Even though I didn't have class with her anymore, but I'm still practice when I have a chance.

My fiancée is a musician, so I figured I’d better take up lessons so I could be more involved. I took lessons with Trish for a few weeks until I moved to Memphis, she’s very professional and friendly as well. I was very happy with the progress I made and knowledge that she gave me. It’s helped me locate the next right classes to attend as I moved to Memphis!

Trish learned to sing by listening intently to the soulful sounds of those talented artists. Recently relocating from the West Coast to Yellow Springs, Trish was born into a family of music lovers and performers, She began to play piano by ear at age eight following in the footsteps of her grandmother who played piano and organ and sang jazz and popular music of the 20’s – 50’s. Her mother had a satiny Sarah Vaughan style contralto voice and from her Trish learned the concepts of phrasing, time and improvisation. Her grandmother sang and performed locally and by listening to her, Trish began to simulate voicing’s she heard in the music. Her exposure to jazz through her mother and grandmother became the most important, stimulating and challenging musical genre of her career. Moving to the West Coast from the Midwest in the latter 80's introduced Trish to KJAZ" which was at the time, the premier San Francisco Jazz station. Listening to jazz was extraordinarily challenging and very compelling and the most musically inspiring to date. Her brother, began making audio cassettes for her of compilations of the history of jazz, which included many instrumental groups and vocalists Trish tuned into the local SF jazz scene and she began attending Bay Area jam sessions and shows at Yoshi's Jazz House and many other music venues around SF Bay Area. Trish took beginning piano and jazz appreciation at Santa Rosa Junior College and attended Jazz Camp West, where she met and worked with vocal teachers Jay Clayton, Rhiannon and Faith Winthrop. She took courses at the Jazz School Conservatory in Berkeley, CA and studied Vocal Scat & Improv & Art of Duo with Mimi Fox and Speech Level Singing technique with Dave Stroud.
