If you have a heartbeat, you have a voice. My job is to help you discover the unique rhythm that informs your unique voice. Together, we'll work to remove the obstacles of fear and anxiety when expressing yourself so that you can experience more confidence and joy.
I've personally experienced the healing benefits of music. Music healed my heart. It also healed my body. It's why I share the gift of music, rhythm, and voice with my clients every day.
Find your rhythm, find your voice. Three ways to discover, develop, and express the true you.
I offer private lessons, workshops with small groups, and live performance opportunities. Choose the learning mode that works best for you.
20/20 workshops for business owners.
Weekly workshops are offered to business owners who want to master their company's elevator pitch.
Structured in three 45-minute sessions, you'll work alongside a peer group to develop, practice, and deliver your pitch with confidence.
Participation is limited to eight business professionals. New sessions begin weekly.
Private lessons for aspiring vocalists.
Individual lessons are available to those who crave privacy or want to accelerate their learning. Private lessons are for students of all levels and ages.
Students learn the 6 Point Vocal Wav Method™ to help them relax, breathe, perfect their pitch, increase their vocal range, and control their voice.
Each lesson is 30 minutes. New students must also enroll in a 1-hour diagnostic evaluation.
Vocal workshops for performers.
Student showcases are a safe way for students to embrace their curiosity and passion—and let go of their fear. Performing give students confidence to express themselves beyond the stage—it also helps them show up more confidently in the classroom and in life.
Students perform onstage, with a song of their choosing, and are accompanied by live musicians. Performance nights are limited to 10 students of all levels and ages.
Everyone has a voice. I support my clients in finding theirs.
Zoe is one of my bravest students. She is also one of the most dedicated. We've been working together for almost a year. Zoe's mom thought a vocal coach was exactly what Zoe needed to overcome her fear of singing in front of others. As her confidence has soared, so has her enthusiasm to perform.
Welch came to me for some targeted techniques to help him project his voice more powerfully. The quality of his voice has improved dramatically using the tools to let go and have fun when it comes to performing. We did a series of private lessons to help him build his capacity for breathing and projecting while increasing his confidence.
When Nicole came to me it was for the purpose of exploring a new hobby. She was excited and motivated even though she struggled with fear, which is common with many clients when they begin their vocal studies.
We did extensive breathing and relaxation exercises in addition to projection exercises to give her the confidence she needed to sing at her Grandfather's memorial while accompanying herself on ukelele. More recently, she auditioned and was chosen as the opening act for Heartbeat, a fundraising event for C.R.I.B. - Children Rescued in Burundi Africa.
Training the voice starts
by training the breath.
I use the 6 Point Vocal Wav Method™ to help my students relax, breathe, perfect their pitch, increase their vocal range, and control their voice.
In a few short sessions, you'll master the physical techniques for owning and projecting your unique voice with clarity and confidence.
Develop an awareness of your voice, body and how to make the two work together.
Once there is evidence of integration between mind and the connection to the physical body you're ready to graduate. You're learning how to draw from your core gathering momentum for delivering and releasing your message.
Whether singing, speaking, presenting or simply asking for support or using your voice to speak your truth - projection is a matter of letting go technically, physically and mentally with the confidence to do so.
Now that you've learned to breathe deep from your power source versus shallow chest breathing, and you're experiencing what your voice and entire physical body feels like when it comes from a supported place, you're ready to perform if this is a personal goal for you.
Clients learn the ins and outs of working on a stage complete with lights, microphone, live professional musicians and supportive audience. The practice of performing takes one's confidence to a whole new level. As a performer, there is nothing like connecting with your audience on a deep level using the power of your voice.
