I am passionate about singing!
I will help you or your choir improve their singing and their ensemble sound. In the both private lessons and the masterclass, I use techniques that enable more support, open the voice, and free the body and sound. I also teach about the vocal mechanism, and some basic vocal anatomy. I have taught private voice for over 20 years, and masterclasses and workshops for the last 9 years. I bring that knowledge, along with my professional choral and solo experience to you or your choir.
If you are preparing a specific piece, or just want to have a fresh, energetic approach to singing, contact me for available dates.
I'd love to help you or your choir sing their best!
