"Experienced voice teacher of 10 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages 13 and up. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong vocal technique. I am a proponent of Functional Singing which focuses on how the vocal mechanism works. It allows both teacher and singer to explore the voice and its associated muscle systems. Singers learn to embrace their voice, not one that is falsified through imitation. Want to sing as easy as you speak? Then contact me and let's get to work.

Shannon is a great instructor and just a cool, funny person. She makes learning fun and even when she's being critical (that's what I pay her for, btw), she does it in such a way as to truly be helpful. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons. It's a highlight of my week, and my friends, who I play music and sing with, have noticed a real improvement in my singing voice since I've been working with her. I highly recommend hiring her as your vocal coach. FYI, I am a male in my 50's who just started singing in recent years. I wish I had been working with her since I was in my teens or 20's.
