I am a lyric soprano, studio business professional, arts collaborator, vocal coach and creative. My teaching philosophy begins with a natural, released breath, good produced speech and a free released sound. Add classical, jazz, musical theater, worship and current popular repertoire to that and you can sing. I have sung in choirs throughout the nation. Sung with jazz trios, concert and symphonic orchestras. And enjoyed teaching kids, teens and adults for 20+ years. I toured Japan, India, England and Italy with classes and choirs. I have designed a system of Group Voice Classes for both adults and elementary age singers in which music explores a time of learning, fun, stress relief, self-discovery and singing well.
All this experience, is a process, an evolution of a singer and the creation of a body of work. As I prepare for 2016, I am considering a new use for this blog. And I am beginning a path of Metanoia for myself.
