Teaching Philosophy

“My goal as a teacher is to encourage each of my students to celebrate their voice and individual sound. Whether students have a drive to pursue a career in music or become the audiences and arts supporters of the future, each singer deserves a chance to get to know their voice. Through an understanding of breath, the basic mechanics of the voice, a connection to text and poetry, students of all ages have the ability to grow and thrive to become an empowered singer.”
