About this pro

20 years of singing experience: I specialize in Jazz, R&B/Soul and Pop

B.A. Music / Vocal Emphasis from NAU, 2010

8+ years of receiving private lessons in opera, jazz and pop.

13+ years choral participation

Full-time performing musician for 3.5 years, 900 gigs in that time period so far. Mostly local, a few dozen out-of-state performances.

4+ years of giving private voice lessons

I have a lot of tools and techniques to offer, but I thrive on giving singers an overview of what they need to get started in the industry. I customize my teaching towards that end: building repertoire, networking, performing, expression, media/marketing, etc.. I also love working with current musicians who seek a 'tune up.'

Niché skill set is vocal looping: anyone with a loop station: I'm your person. (Especially a BOSS RC 505)

Singing is an amazing adventure, both physically and psychologically. Learning the details about voice has changed my life: I'm thrilled to share anything I can to pay it forward.

How did you get started teaching?

A friend was leaving his voice studio in 2013 and asked if I was interested in teaching voice lessons. I had a lot of music background but felt a bit rusty, so I invested in my own vocal coach to make sure I was doing right by prospective students (GREAT investment).


What types of students have you worked with?

Ages between 7 - 50 so far, beginners, intermediate, singing professionals, vocal injuries.

Favorite students = Jazz or R&B, looping enthusiasts also a favorite.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be sure you are invested in doing the work: A teacher's job is to give you seeds, but we're not actually digging the soil and watering your plants.

To make the money work for you, it's suggested to keep some kind of practice/work ethic towards applying tools from lessons.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Have a sort of idea or goal going into it: What do you hope to learn or accomplish? What's missing?
