I love teaching beginners and more advanced students. My studio mission is "Let me help you find your voice!" I have experience with Classical and Musical Theater performance. I teach traditional lessons as well as coaching for auditions and performances. Please see many more details on my website:
I truly love teaching. I love seeing a student's eyes light up when they suddenly see an improvement in their tone or pitch...when they understand a concept I'm explaining...when they perform a selection at recital and get compliments for the first time. I love turning to a parent during a lesson to see tears of joy in their eyes. There's just too much joy in my work to fully describe!
I offer a free initial consultation for a meet and greet appointment.

I had requests from friends and acquaintances and from theater contacts to provide private lessons. So I began a small studio. in 2014, I retired from a full-time business position and decided to actively start a voice studio. I get most of my students from Google Ads.
Musical Theater performers, High school students with both Classical music and Musical Theater goals. With young children using a special study which does not tax a young child's vocal abilities. I coach many people just for auditions or performances. I've had students entering "The Voice" and "America's Got Talent" as well as preparing teens and adults auditioning for area musical theater productions.
I offer students performance opportunities twice a year...a more formal recital in April and a more relaxed Christmas Cabaret in early December for friends and family. Our first annual Cabaret was held on December 3rd 2017 and featured fun, crazy and traditional Christmas tunes. My students did such a great job.
I think it's good to plan time to just talk and get to know the teacher. That is why I offer my free initial consultation.
