- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Each new customer has their own personal story about music and about their own voice. I do my best to discover what their voice IS, and to help release it through singing. No matter how much or how little training you have, EVERYONE can sing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have trained and performed in various vocal programs and chorales, but the most powerful vocal training I have received has been singing with my family. I have performed opera, musical theater, vintage jazz and swing, the "Great American Songbook," pop, and have sung with a swing band and an indie folk rock band. I am also a Music Together teacher (helping families make music with each other at home.)
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always sung, but also always lacked confidence in performing. I did not think my voice was anything special (despite what other people said.) Even after I started performing in a chorus and began feeling more confident, I still held back from opportunities I really wanted. Fast forward a few years, when serendipity gave me the chance to sing in different styles of bands and I really started to sing out. I have performed at private events and on community stages now for 20 years. I undertook more vocal training a few years ago to polish and improve my overall technique and confidence (with the amazing April Diamond.) After working with her for a while, I realized I really want to help more people find their confidence and their voices. I have been working with private clients and students in schools since 2020. I am seeing great growth and I am so excited to help more people SING!
