"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.

I had a wonderful experience with Shannon, she is everything I was hoping for in voice techniques and singing fuctions you need to achieve in your singing.
She has a wonderful disposition and personality that even helps you more with your lesson. I would recomend her definately to my family and friends.

Without reservation, I give Shannon my highest rating as a singing teacher/coach. As an amateur who hadn't sung in decades, I wanted to see if it were possible to recapture the joy and ease I had with singing in my youth. Shannon's experience both with singing and with teacher were immediately evident. She has proven to be the perfect combination of enthusiastic, passionate, encouraging, and motivating. I am enjoying myself tremendously.

Shannon is the best of both worlds when it comes to fun yet serious! I have had only one lesson so far which has already proved to be most helpful, and I will definitely continue!

I know Shannon F. from when she lived in North Carolina. She is a terrific singer
who can sing anything from opera to Broadway to jazz. Shannon is a caring and knowledgeable teacher who has years of experience teaching privately and at
several universities. If you want to learn a healthy way to sing that will make your voice last, this is the teacher for you. She can also train singers in how to give good performances and make an audience pay attention. Shannon is the best!
