My Teaching Philosophy

In my teaching, I provide a supportive, structured learning environment where students feel confident taking the musical, vocal, and creative risks that are important to their growth. Singing is an inherent part of being human, yet many people develop fears and even physical tension around singing in public. A lot of the work that I do with my students involves creating and maintaining freedom in both technique and performance in ways that are fun and motivating for students of all ages. It is so exciting to witness and celebrate those “a-ha” moments that students have in a lesson or performance when something they’ve been working on really clicks.
