Teaching Philosophy

Like all teachers of the arts, I desire to help my students discover their potential – to help them see their creative possibilities.  Through support and encouragement, my students and I work together to find their natural, unique vocal color by employing sound technical means.  Some students go on to become professional musicians, and some are hoping to increase their confidence and accuracy. Regardless of their vocal level, it is my joy to help each student uncover their originality and expressivity.
