My aim as a voice teacher is to help you develop flexibility, freedom, and joy in singing. Drawing on tools from historical methods and contemporary vocal research, I can help you find ways to improve your resonance and breath management, the clarity of your diction, and your awareness of tension so that you can more smoothly access your full range and sound your best.
Let’s discuss your goals and come up with a plan to achieve them through effective practicing, including ideas for fitting short daily practice sessions into a busy schedule. I customize vocal exercises to help you work on any challenges you may be having with your vocal technique or in a specific piece of music.
Would you like to strengthen your sightsinging skills? I can provide a wide range of solo repertoire from medieval to modern in multiple languages. We can work on choral pieces so you can strengthen your contribution to the ensembles you love to sing with. I also enjoy helping singers interested in improvising ornaments in baroque, classical, and bel canto repertoire.
In-depth work on repertoire is a vital part of my teaching. We’ll find pieces that will speak to you, and together we’ll explore more about their texts, meaning, music, and historical context. You’ll gain confidence as you develop your unique interpretation of each song and in turn make a greater impact on and connection with your audience.
