- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First discussing what lead the student to reach out for voice lessons, getting a sense of any previous experience they have, letting them ask any initial questions they have, and then diving right into the lesson with vocal exercises.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I go to a Voice Teacher Mentorship seminar that used to be twice yearly in New York City with my voice teacher’s teacher, but now that most things are zoom, I get this continuing education all year round. It is an incredible experience where I get to learn as much as I can from a man who has devoted his life on compiling the most healthful and wholistic methods of training the voice.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I’ve been taking voice lessons for decades, and singing professionally for more than fifteen years, but it wasn’t until I started studying with my current voice teacher that I started considering teaching, myself. My teacher has been the most incredible mentor, and very quickly expressed to me that he thought I should consider teaching, and immediately sent me to his teacher in NYC for teacher mentorship seminars. That was back in 2018, and the rest is history!
