    Natalie was very knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher! She individualized the lessons and was quickly able to help me fix issues with my posture and technique. I learned a ton, and it was really enjoyable!

About this pro

Not every performer can instruct. Not every instructor can perform. I've been performing since middle school (earlier if you count church choir) and engaged the music theater and dinner theater world professionally and semi-professionally for several years. I've performed solo and with bands for audiences of thousands, as well as small gatherings, receptions, congregations, weddings, and a host of other venues. I've also invested the time, energy and expense in learning not only the crafts of vocal performance, leading, playing, and the like, but - particularly in the area of voice - the I've learned best practices for optimal, healthy singing for a lifetime. That includes learning all about the *vocal instrument*, how it all works together physically, mentally, and emotionally. And, my students tell me over and over, I have the ability to communicate these vital pieces of information effectively so that you can begin learning the craft or creating powerful, positive changes to your voice, performances, and communication from your very first lesson. I truly love helping people define and then reach their goals with music. I also love bringing people to the point at which they can lose themselves in their music, while not losing the music, in terms of pitch, communication or strength. And I love to watch people grow in confidence as they grow as musicians. I also love and appreciate the opportunities to get to practice, rehearse, and sing with my students on occasion. That's a joy that keeps me in the game, too, while we're achieving their goals.

      As of 2017, A Higher Note LLC fees are as follows: 60-minute lesson – $50 45-minute lesson – $37.50 30-minute lesson – $25
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      After a new student or student's parent contacts me and we agree upon a lesson day and time, I send them complete instructions, including what happens next, payment instructions, directions to my home-studio, and the three required forms they must complete and return to me preferably before their lesson.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      My training has come from a variety of world-class music instructors and choral conductors (Norma Lowder, Earle Lowder, Gary Bradberry, Morris Beachy, and others); private music lessons with instructors specializing in Broadway-performance techniques (Margaret Riddleberger), classical (bel canto) (Bonnie Bradley), and general music theater and performance (David Troupe); and the school of hard knocks. :-) Since 1979, I’ve been involved in a broad variety of musical endeavors: musicals (a season in The Washington Savoyards); dinner theater in D.C.; professional entertainment on a dinner cruise ship; wedding and event singing; church soloist (classical); church worship bands (contemporary); church choirs and licensed major musicals as a child, youth, and adult; The University of Texas Longhorn Singers; early childhood music education (both Music TogetherTM and KindermusikTM, and owned and ran a KindermusikTM studio for several years); teaching music in public and private schools; and all manner of singing, both meaningful and fun, from childhood up to now.
