I continually am astounded by the growth of my students, and I am so proud of each and every one of them.
It is so satisfying to see and hear students who find their true voice, and I can visually see their excitment and self condidence as they travel on this journey.
Joy is not only an amazing vocal teacher, but also takes the time to mentor her students in all aspects of preparing for auditions, shows, and the expectations of performing professionally. Joy has a genuine passion and love for what she does, as well as a very nurturing teaching technique.
Joy is fantastic! She's very professional, talented and puts careful thought in each lesson. She encourages and inspires my son at every lesson. My son enjoys his time with Joy and has learned so much. She is a true gem to work for!
The process, initially, in working with a new student is to first do an invaluation. I will check your breathing, whether or not you are breathing in a high chest breath or deep diaphramatically. I will check you "ear" for pitch to see if you are singing center pitch or near pitch. I will also look to see if you are healthfully singing in your mask, or if you are straining in your throat.
You will be asked to sing a song, so that I can also see how you interpret a lyric- whether authentically or no.
Once all is accessed we will start the journey to strengthening the skills so that you find freedom and artistry in your own unique voice.
