In elementary school, I attended speech therapy because I was unable to pronounce certain sounds. Now I can. In my adult life, my friends will make fun of me for being difficult to understand. I get that way when I'm extremely comfortable and trying to talk fast. I can switch modes to an eloquent, easy-to-understand voice that I can use to address a large audience and command attention. All of this stuff is skill-based and fairly simple to learn. It all starts by being comfortable with the way your personal voice sounds, and working outward from there.
Expect to work on posture, breathing, volume, and control of vowel and consonant sounds. Oh, and we'll also read your favorite books, poems, and speeches out loud! It'll be fun, I promise.

As the creator and producer of San Diego IndieFest and Say It Records, I have a unique understanding of the industry, and love to share that with my students.
It's paramount to me that each student's lesson be customized to her / his specific goals and needs. Whether those are for personal enrichment or for professional aspirations, your lesson will be personalized according to what's important to you.
I LOVE to teach, and appreciate my wee ones just as much as my elders...those who consider themselves "tone deaf" as much as my advanced students. As far as Special Needs go - I feel we *ALL* have special needs....every child and every adult! ;)
Hello Students / Parents! I specialize in providing a fun, inspiring and safe space for each student to reach their goals â whether that be for the novice singer whose been wrongfully told they âshouldn't sing,â the more experienced singer looking to branch out into doing more with their music or doing it professionally, or the budding songwriter, actor or speaker looking to develop the talent and drive they feel within them. I always remember the encouragement, patience and inspiration I received from my best teachers, and strive to provide exactly that to my own students. I sing and teach most vocal styles, with the exception of opera, and utilize our studio to create a supportive, empowering experience singing, writing and recording. I absolutely love to teach both children

---------- Now teaching in Orange County AND San Diego! --------- Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile.
