I studied with Mrs. Fielder for four years. I started taking voice lessons when I was a freshman in high school and continued my voice lessons throughout all of high school. Not only did Mrs. Fielder get to know me as a student, but she really knew who I was as a person. My vocal technique improved substantially. I learned how to sing in classical, musical theatre, jazz, opera styles in a healthy way. If certain songs were not fitting my voice, she was flexible and I always felt comfortable telling her how I felt about the music I was singing. Mrs. Fielder is very knowledgable about the repertoire she finds for her students and about the voice. She teaches a wide range of students differing in age and gender. She taught me proper ways to not only sing, but to take care of my voice if it was tired from long rehearsals from school musicals, if I was sick, or vocally tired. She was supportive every step of the way; including solo and ensemble, school musical auditions, NATS, and college auditions. She encouraged me to love my own voice and be confident in all of my performances. I learned so much about musicality and myself as a human being. I am now minoring in music at Michigan State University. If it wasn't for Mrs. Fielder, I would not be the singer/performer I am today, let alone the confident woman I am today. She is an inspiration and you will be one lucky student if you have Mrs Fielder as your teacher.
