In most of the environments that we find ourselves in daily, (be them performance-based or not,) there is a “mold” that we are tempted to try and squeeze into. “Sing louder! Sing higher! Why don’t you sound like Gaga!?”

It is my belief however, that constantly trying to squeeze into the mold leads only to tension, frustration, and a lack of authenticity. Each of us has a unique voice and a unique story to tell. By helping you build a better connection to your mind, body, vocal mechanism, it is my goal as a voice teacher to help you unlock that voice so that you are able to tell your story. Outside of everyone having their own unique voice, everyone processes information differently, so it my priority to discover how you learn so that we can work together to figure out how to help you make your most sustainable, healthy, and natural sounds. While my work with each student may vary in terms of approach, it is all based in a solid understanding of the structure and function of the vocal mechanism and also the body and mind’s effect on that mechanism.

I strive to make my studio a diverse, inclusive, and safe space for my students to learn. So much of the way we are able to process information, make big discoveries, and grow as vocalists is effected by our mental state. By fostering an environment where my students are able to feel at ease and relaxed they are then able to truly open up, get out of their comfort zones, and explore parts of their voice that may be uncharted territory. Our self discovery begins where out comfort zone ends. I also highly encourage a space of open dialogue and communication between myself and my students. By keeping a line of open communication I feel that lessons become not only about me teaching the student but about them teaching me as well. Our journey together is growth and discovery through teamwork. If everyone on the team is moving forward together, then the success will take care of itself.

SLOTS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR THE SUMMER!

Working with a voice teacher is a unique and personal experience. Sometimes, it can take a few "first dates" before you find a teacher that is the right fit for you. I welcome new students into my studio, be it for one lesson or one-hundred.  If you do not find value in our first session together, you will not be charged for that time.
