We are a music studio offering online and in-person coaching in voice, songwriting and creativity. We provide a fully-customized experience based on science, health, intuition and imagination - helping you fuel your creative spark and use your voice with greater freedom and power.
What's the difference between voice lessons and our vocal coaching? Instead of an "instructional" approach, we work with you in a creative way to blend the technical and artistic with what makes you YOU. We want to align our work with your goals and interests - and we like the teamwork mentality that comes with a coach/client relationship. We believe that vocal empowerment is immensely valuable for any age, career or phase of life - and we welcome and value our clients from all backgrounds and levels of experience.

We know that singing and using your creative voice is a very vulnerable act – but we also know how life-changing and empowering this journey can be! While our voice training methods are based in vocology, we always take a holistic and creative approach in order to support your unique self. All sessions begin with vocal warm-ups and exercises selected to help you access new muscles and sounds, as well as develop your breathing and listening skills. The remainder of the session can consist of a blend of topics depending on your upcoming goals or needs that day, such as song study and application, storytelling, musicianship, creative development, body language, improvisation, songwriting, spoken word, ear-training, yoga and breathing exercises, basic piano, performance skills, music theory, etc.
