 I work with the whole body in finding good, focused tone and in discovering the musicality inherent in language and character. My teaching is that of an encourager.  I offer support of the artist/student's goals and give them the opportunity to discover choices. I have found that teaching is one of the most creative jobs out there and I invest my teaching with the style and energy of an artist myself. Each student asks for different ways of communicating material, to suit their backgrounds, philosophies and previous training and I adapt and challenge myself to provide tailored responses to the individual. My extensive background as a professional performer provides the forum for me to relate the value of good vocal health coupled with the experience of a performer who has "been there, done that". Those who do, MUST TEACH. It is the only way to pass down the material in its most distilled efficient method. What I teach WORKS, because I've personally experienced it. I've seen it change the body, voice and the spirit. My experience as a voice teacher/coach has enriched my life and has changed my person.
