I am a classically trained singer and teacher. My vocal technique is an acoustic technique: we learn about how the body produces and amplifies sound. I believe that students should be independent musicians and thinkers, meaning students will learn to read music and are encouraged to watch and record themselves so they can make up their own minds about the sounds they are hearing. When ready, students are expected to perform in studio recitals and/or local festivals. I accept students of all ages, with children beginning in grade 2.
