ABOUT LESSONS WITH ME
I believe learning how to sing should be an enjoyable and educational experience. As a teacher who enjoys encouraging my students, I hope to help you achieve your full potential as a singer, freeing the sound of your natural voice through the fulfillment of attainable and realistic short- and long-term goals. Since every voice is unique, I look forward to helping you discover what makes you special as a singer and performer, educating you on scientifically-based practices as well as the artistic nature of singing. Further, I aim to help you connect with your audience and embody the character of each of your songs. I hope that through taking voice lessons with me, you will feel empowered and confident in the knowledge of how to use your voice effectively and efficiently, steadily overcoming the challenges that are naturally a part of the overall experience.

Something to Remember
Singing can be a wonderful experience, and to master it takes lots of time and practice. Perhaps the hardest thing is to come to terms with is the realization that there is no "quick fix" to singing better. It takes time and dedication to the craft; however, there are ways in which a student can be on the path to better singing faster, including scientifically-based practices by someone like me who has experience performing, teaching, and researching the voice. Singing can be both a science and an art! It just takes the right person to help guide the student to success.

Vocal habilitation (as opposed to rehabilitation) is aimed at helping voice users maintain or improve skills and functioning after experiencing a vocal injury, medical treatment that affected the voice, or strain/pain associated with singing and/or speaking. As a trained vocologist/singing voice specialist, I can help you find functional vocal freedom.
I am experienced in teaching online voice lessons and you may even forget that we're seeing each other over a screen! I use a Blue Yeti microphone with Bluedio noise-cancelling headphones to provide you with a high-quality sound over the internet.
