Dual Bachelor of Music in Music therapy and Vocal Performance from Berklee College of Music
I have traveled all over the Continental U.S, Germany, Switzerland and Africa as a featured vocalist and workshop clinician. Classically trained and raised in the church, I draw from these different points of reference to add flavor and spice to my performances. My wide range, clear tone, professionalism and modesty set me apart from other vocalists. I have been professionally teaching both individual and group voice lessons for over 20 years, having successfully trained in the 5 year Music Therapy and Vocal Performance Dual Degree program at Berklee College of Music, I look forward to a promising career equipping and educating the next stars of the music industry!
I began teaching voice lessons and group workshops in 1999 while studying at Berklee. I opened my home studio in 2003 offering music theory tutoring, workshops in Songwriting, live/studio Performance coaching, Musical theatre, classical/opera, folk music, gospel, jazz (ballads), r&b, classic rock, oldies, country, pop, blues, caberet and choirs. My practice expanded to offer vocal production, Studio recording training, artist development, public speaking training, and production consultation.
I teach basic theory, breathing techniques, microphone technique, sight reading, movement for the stage, scales, and varied genres of music. studio training, acting skills for the singer, performance coaching, voice-overs and vocal improvisation utilizing traditional vocal technique. Students interested in any genre can get positive results by employing these basic techniques into their artistry. I also incorporate the Kodaly method into my work with younger students. (piano, drums, guitar and voice)
Lessons are fun and individualized to suit the needs of each student. I believe that learning music should be both challenging and fun! Please note: Effective training will require a moderate level of dedication to practice and preparation on the student's part. I generally will use songs to help reiterate key concepts of proper technique and performance. This helps the student make a connection with the pieces and aids in the development of new skills and helps with muscle memory. Students will also learn how to care for their instruments properly.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
