    I have studied with Ms. Love since 2005. After beginning my studies, I noticed a remarkable improvement in facility and ease of vocal production, as well as an overall better sound! I am currently working and singing professionally, and highly recommend Ms. Love to anyone who wishes to explore their vocal potential!

    I have studied with Miss Love for 4 years and my voice has grown dramatically as a result. Her approach to singing is clear, healthy and free. Her own success as a member of the Metropolitan Opera Company gives her a great perspective on vocal technique as well as all aspects of performing. She has helped me tremendously with eliminating tension and learning how to breathe correctly. It has allowed me to pursue new singing opportunities successfully. I would recommend her for anyone serious about learning how to sing properly and beautifully.
