The most important part of singing, is the breath. I love to teach on the subject of the breath. That is the foundation for good solid technique. I also teach the art of "Acting-Singing". It is very important express emotion when singing, and one will be surprised when you realize how much emotion plays a part in vocal technique. Let's explore together!
