Vocal students will learn the following:
* vocal healthcare, warm-ups, strengthening and technique
* improved range and vocal control
* microphone, stage, and performance tips
* breathing enhancement
* lyrical interpretation
* improved audience connection
I will help students learn and perfect a catalog of songs, either originals they have written or songs they love to sing, sung by other artists.
Guitar students will learn the following:
* strumming patterns
* songs of their choosing
* guitar anatomy, care, and maintenance
I am very familiar with the "ins and outs" of the the following:
* music industry
* studio recording and album production
* radio play
* booking concerts
* live performances
Assisting others in achieving their musical and vocal dreams is a passion of mine.
For the past several years, I have been teaching students ages 5 to adult in the Clovis, Fresno, Sanger, Madera, and Selma areas, for both vocal and beginning guitar.
As a professional, female recording artist (on Country Music Radio worldwide since 2010) and published songwriter, I have over a decade of experience in the music business as well as church settings (e.g. worship leader, solos, church concerts, etc.).
Lessons are available in my home or yours, once a week or twice a month. Vocal lessons can be combined with guitar lessons, or students can take vocal or guitar only. My coaching and teaching techniques are positive, enthusiastic, and relevant.
I have a proven track record, helping students to "come out of their shell," to overcome nerves and stage fright, developing and enhancing their God-given musical talents. My students have trained to receive lead and supportive roles in musicals, as well as top local choir awards and singing opportunities (e.g. national anthem, Fresno Grizzlies, etc.).
