Teaching Philosophy

I aim to help uncover students’ natural, resonant instruments with my teaching, using a solid background of historical pedagogy, modern voice science, and personal artistic expertise. I believe every person is born with not only an ability, but a need to express themselves creatively, and music is one powerful avenue to explore that.

 

Because all singing is strengthened with solid, healthy vocal technique, I’m comfortable teaching in multiple genres of music, including classical, musical theater, and contemporary.

 

I also believe it is never too late to learn how to sing, and currently teach students from age 6 to 75.

 

Through steady coaching, individualized exercises to strengthen & condition voices, and extensive training in the Alexander Technique & yoga, coupled with a nurturing and engaging teaching process, I help my students find greater degrees of freedom physically and vocally, to become flexible, confident, and supported singers.
