VOICE TRAINING OF THE HIGHEST CALIBRE

I teach singers who desire to develop excellence in healthy and versatile vocal technique. You will learn to maximize breath support, sing with an open pharynx, and use mask resonance to project your sound, even without a microphone. I do not teach the "belt" method of singing that is so often used by pop singers and some Music Theatre singers. I believe that a properly trained voice can and should last you a lifetime!

My specialty is training singers who wish to develop careers in Classical and Musical Theatre performance. I can help you prepare for auditions, competitions, University or College Voice and Music Theatre programs, and performances in the community.


I teach in a friendly, supportive style, in my home studio. You will surprise yourself with the challenges you overcome and with the progress you will make!

PRINCIPLES OF SINGING IN MY STUDIO

  • a foundation of strong breath support, using lower abdominal muscles and the diaphragm

  • an open pharynx, with relaxed neck and jaw, a low tongue, and a raised soft palate

  • strong resonance in the "mask" region of the head, using resonant spaces and surfaces, such as the sinus cavities, nasopharynx, etc.

  • clear, forward diction, using lips for projection

 

YOUR BEST SINGING VOICE IS AHEAD OF YOU!
