Hello. As a lifelong singer and a songwriter since around my third month as a folk guitar student, my musical journey has brought me into the classes of many good and some great instructors. Two life changing teachers have given me the greatest gift yet: the transforming opportunity to teach voice (Linda Brice) with the transcending vehicles of Circle Singing and Vocal Improv (Bobby McFerrin). This serendipitous confluence has forever changed my life and I am excited to share what I've learned.
I approach voice teaching as a holistic healing art. I find teaching voice to be much more intimate than any other work I've done and make it a point to provide a safe, supportive environment. It gives me no greater pleasure than to guide individuals in unleashing the beautiful voice inherent to all.
Here are some other details you might like to know:
I'm a performing singer, songwriter, recording artist and voice teacher. I've been singing all my life since my mom took me along to her voice lessons from age 6. It was here that I was introduced to classical voice instruction. I've fronted bands ranging from punk to jazz. I've done a bit of musical theater. I've played solo coast to coast. My BA is in Holistic Psychology. I graduated from the Transformational Voice Institutes's Voice Teacher Apprenticeship, led by Linda Brice. I've been a healing arts practitioner since 1992 working on people as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Esthetician.
