Teaching Music Over 15 years experience

Each person has a voice that is unique in size and timbre (or color). However, many people use extraneous tension when attempting to sing; this tension hampers the freedom of vocal production and the true quality of the singer’s voice. Students learn singing methods that relieve tension and reveal the uniqueness of each singer - not only vocally, but also expressively: the voice becomes stronger and more agile, and higher and lower notes can be achieved and held longer. 

I continue to study the latest Advanced Vocal techniques to bring the most recent vocal development td to my students by studying with Katharin Rundus, PhD in vocal studies and Vocal Science.
