I assist students to develop a healthy vocal production through style appropriate vocal technique and musicianship.
I welcome students of all ages from beginners to advanced and offer a friendly and supportive environment where you are able to discover your own voice.
Each lesson we will be working on singing technique including alignment, breathing and vocal production, learning repertoire with the stylistic requirements for each genre.
Please send me an email or feel free to contact me for any further info on singing lessons.
I look forward to hearing from you.
