Overview:

I have been singing ever since I can remember and started taking lessons at the age of 7. My vocal studies brought me to complete my Masters degree in Vocal Performance at UNCG. Though the focus of my degree was Opera, I am practiced in many different genres of music. My classical education has given me a thorough understanding of the vocal instrument and allowed me to healthily, comfortably, and with ease be able to branch out into a variety of different genres. I have performed in many Musical Theater productions- Most recently Mrs. Lovett in Sweeny Todd, Operas- performing roles like Cinderella to The Queen of the Night, and I frequently perform with a rock and roll band here in Greensboro, NC. In addition, I also write and record my own pop songs. I understand that everyone has different needs in their vocal journey and I am more than equipped to adapt to each individual to help them reach their goals. So whether you are a beginner or in the advanced stages of your vocal education, I will be thrilled for the opportunity to help you navigate this very special and complex instrument.

EXPERIENCE

Because of my active involvement in the musical world from a young age, I understand the different challenges and learning curves for students of all ages. I have found that everyone processes things differently, develops at various paces, and not one voice is the same. That being said, I cater my lessons to each individuals needs. All the time people tell me they can't sing. For some people it might come more naturally than others, but I have found that if you can match pitch, then you are very teachable. I love helping people discover all their voice can do.

METHODS USED

For beginners, I like to incorporate a basic understanding of pitch, rhythm, and theory to develop their skills as a musician. I use a variety of exercises to develop range, intonation, diction, and breath control. The warm up part of the lesson is so important because it is where I can identify strengths and expose weaknesses that can be improved. Once these have been assessed I like to select repertoire that allows the student to use their growing musicianship and skills. I like the student to be involved in the selection of repertoire, because I know, whatever you're singing, you need to enjoy it! I have a vast knowledge of Classical/ Musical Theatre/ Folk repertoire, and am always open to new song selections. For more advanced students, I will work with you on further honing your technique and figure out where you most need guidance and growth.

LESSON STYLE

For many people, singing is all about having the confidence to try. I encourage all my students to sing out and not be afraid to make mistakes. I emphasize strengths and am always quick to point out the smallest of victories. Learning to sing is about consistency and knowing you're a work in progress. Even the most accomplished of singers are still learning and growing. I think the best sound comes from a relaxed and comfortable body, which is why I incorporate work on posture and movement to make sure you are uninhibited by body tension or stiffness. I believe when you find the right body-mind connection, your voice is capable of a great deal.

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.
