Approach to voice
Nurturing the student's natural, honest, individual sound is my ultimate goal with voice lessons. Foundational to singing is a solid vocal technique and ways to develop it are built into every lesson. These techniques can be applied to whatever type of music enjoyed.
Singer’s age, skill level and interest are considered when choosing the repertoire
Musicianship, ear training and sight-singing skills are developed to support a well-rounded musician
Musical interests accommodated from folk songs, light art songs, arias, music theatre and other genres to make voice relevant and fun
Self-confidence, poise and expressive singing are highlighted for students interested in recital performances
Who benefits from voice lessons?
The aspiring singer interested in pursuing music and finding their true voice
The student wishing to take on the challenge of exams and competitive festivals
The young student wanting to develop a love of music and a strong musical foundation
Choristers or potential choristers who would like to improve their sight-reading and musicianship skills as well as develop healthy vocal technique
Learners of all ages who want to experience singing and increase their enjoyment and appreciation of all music
Students wanting the many benefits that result from music training
Instrumentalists who wish to fine-tune or improve their musicianship skills
What Students Are Saying
Everyone suddenly burst out singing
And I was filled with such delight
As prisoned birds must find in freedom,
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark-green fields; on — on — and out of sight.
Everyone’s voice was suddenly lifted;
And beauty came like the setting sun:
My heart was shaken with tears; and horror
Drifted away… O, but Everyone
Was a bird; and the song was wordless; the singing will never be done.
