Greetings! My name is Shelby, and I am a former Manhattan School of Music student. I am classically trained, and have been singing for about 18 years. I absolutely adore music, and live to help others master their craft. I am currently pursuing a career in serious music. If you have a love for music, and want to grow and master the art of vocal performance, I can help you reach your goals!
