Welcome to my music website!

In my private teaching, I hope to encourage an easy rapport so that my students feel comfortable trying new things. I also seek to instill a love of music and singing in my students with my passion for teaching voice. I have experience working with many different types of students of all ages with a variety of vocal issues.

Voice lessons are available for students ages 9 and up and piano lessons start at age 5. Lessons are arranged by appointment and can be in your home (provided a piano is available) or my studio.

My primary goal helping students make an easy and healthy sound. These concepts are developed through a combination of breath and vocal exercises, repertoire, interpretation, and audio/visual aids. I teach all singing styles including: classical, musical theater, pop, jazz and country styles. 

Voice Lessons Focus on:
  • Building a healthy vocal technique
  • Projecting your voice
  • Using proper breath support
  • Increasing vocal range 
  • Singing with ease and clarity
  • Expressing and interpreting songs
  • Building confidence

  • Using breath correctly
  • Stage presence
  • Performance Opportunities
