Studio Mission Statement
It is my goal to foster the growth and development of emerging singers and performing artists. I am committed to providing instruction of healthy vocal technique while encouraging students to expand their love of music through the study of a variety of musical styles.
Studio Policies and Guidelines

The Basics

- 30min, 45min, or 1hr sessions available

- Invoices will be sent via email and can be paid online or by check.

Repertoire & Lesson Expectations

- Repertoire is chosen for each individual based on their goals, skill level, and commitment. I ask that students trust my approach when it comes to exploring less familiar genres and classical techniques, so that they can learn to sing in a healthy and sustainable way and become well-rounded musicians.

- Expectations and guidelines for practice will be tailored to each student.

Cancellation Policy & Makeup Lessons

Students in my studio are required to give at least 24 hours notice in order to cancel or reschedule a lesson. If less than 24 hours notice is given, your lesson is forfeited and you will be charged the full amount.

My Teaching Philosophy:

       I believe that it is of great importance for all adolescents and young adults to have a creative outlet. Voice lessons are a way to grow as an artist, a singer, and person as they allow for students to find new ways of expressing themselves. I am interested in teaching enthusiastic and motivated students who are willing to work hard and be open to new ideas, understanding that this process is a collaborative effort between student and teacher. I believe that a warm, positive, judgment-free environment is the most conducive to exploring, discovering, and learning. I promise to be prepared, enthusiastic, and encouraging during lessons, and in return, I expect the same from my students. Students who practice and are willing to take risks will reap the most benefit from lessons.

Students with or without a musical background are welcome in my studio. For students with little to no musical background, I will set aside a small portion of the lesson to work on basic skills in musicianship (sight-reading, scales, etc.). No matter what a student’s goals, whether they hope to sing professional jazz or study classical voice in college, I believe that all singers must learn the fundamentals of healthy singing technique: body alignment, breathing, and resonance. I encourage students to expand their love of singing through many different genres. However, students should understand that in order to create a healthy foundation for singing, classical technique will be a part of all lessons.

      I understand that the majority of musical opportunities for adolescent singers are through school, community theatre and/or choir, summer programs, and competitions, and I am committed to preparing students for this wide variety of opportunities. If students are interested in pursuing music on a collegiate level, I am happy to prepare them for auditions and scholarships in Vocal Performance, Musical Theatre or General Music degree programs.

      Last but not least, I believe that voice lessons should be a source of fun in the lives of these young adults, a time when they can find their voice, expand their love of music and express themselves in a safe and nurturing environment. Now let’s get started!
