I can help you (or your child) to be able to sing in tune, freely and easily with projection, while eliminating injurious vocal habits. The singing technique I embrace promotes health and longevity of the voice, and singing should not be difficult or uncomfortable in any range. I never promote pushing, straining, or false manufacturing of a certain sound, even in the "pop" style of singing. I have been teaching music professionally for 20 years, and private voice lessons for over 14 years. I work with adults, teens and pre-teens to help improve musicianship while helping all to find the true beauty and power of the natural singing voice. In addition to teaching choir and music theory at Middle and High School levels, I have also been a musical theatre performer, a member of a rock band, a professional pianist and a professional opera singer. Please check out my personal website for more information.
