Vocal music teaching is my profession, not a hobby. Providing quality instruction is very important to me. That's why I studied singing for nearly 20 years through private vocal lessons in addition to my musical studies at university. I studied advanced vocal teaching methods and combine this knowledge with a strong academic grounding in music and strong performance skills. I have sung lead roles in operas, musical theater productions, and oratorios and have sung with bands and in a cappella groups. I bring all this background to my vocal studio teaching. My teaching emphasizes producing a vibrant, comfortable tone utilizing the methods I learned during my 18 years of study with my vocal teachers, and through my university degrees. I enjoy working with a wide diversity of students with different goals and interests, while some teachers only like to work with classical students, only feel comfortable teaching pop style, or only want to work with those who are wanting a career in music.
Watching my students progress is the most satisfying aspect of my job. When teaching, I especially enjoy diagnosing any problems with the voice and working together to solve them. Voice teaching often involves visualization and finding common images between the teacher and student, and it is very exciting when this happens. Meeting and working with many interesting people who are passionate about music is also exciting. It is also educational for me to work with students who have many different musical interests. I learn about a lot of new music and performers this way.
