About this pro

I very strongly believe in creating the entire performer. This mindset comes from my Conservatory training at Webster University in Webster Groves, MO., as part of the Reparatory Theatre of St. Louis.  I also have nine plus years of private vocal training by two incredible people.  One was an Opera Star from Germany who relocated here with her husband and taught me just about everything I know about singing.  Another,  was the man who was the head of Roosevelt Universities' Music Department back in the eighties. I work with all ages and skill levels and have a great deal of experience working with kids.  Kids are my passion really.  I have twin daughters of my own and they are my everything.  I was a Girl Scout Leader, Head room Parent, Soccer Coach, which got me a membership on the Positive Coaching Alliance.  I believe the things we say to our children become their inner voice.  I also prides myself in my work with adults as well as professionals.  I offer a free consultation to all my new prospects so that we can get to know each other. You can Learn more about me on my Website at www.voiceboxqueen.com on the about page.  

 I love it when my students light up when I walk through the door.  I love watching them grow and develop into confident performers!  The hugs are especially nice.  Most of all,  I love it when they have those aha moments and they realize that they have so much more ability than they ever dreamed.  Thats the real meat!  It's why I do this.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I always give my students a free consultation.    I think its important that we be a good match for eachother.  My students are like my family.  This consultation gives us a chance to not only make sure that I can give them what they are looking for,  but also that we have a good reporte with one another and we can work together.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been trained at the Conservatory level,  in Voice for acting,  classical singing,  classical acting, Improv as well as accents and dialects.  With nine plus years of private classical voice training as well, I have performed in leading roles in more than fifty musical theatre productions and operettas, along with being the singer for a thirteen piece headliner Big Band.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard pricing for private voice lessons is $50/hr.  And $25/ for 30 mins.  
 My pricing is the same for my private acting lessons. $37 for 45 mins and $16 for 15 mins.

travel to my students is an up charge depending on the distance.

I do charge more for combination lessons and the addition of accents and/or dialects.

If you would like to learn about my specials and discounts you can visit my website and submit your email address.

I am more than happy to do group lessons.  Price would depend on the number of people and the curriculum.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching by accident really.  I would perform and people would come up to me after a show and would ask if I teach.  At first I would say no.  After a while, I thought,"why not?"   So I did!  Turns out, I'm really good at it.
