Get To Know Me
A Little Bit About Myself
I was not a natural singer. I was actually pretty bad at singing when I took my first voice lesson at age 18. I couldn’t sing above middle C without straining or pushing.
Overcoming my own vocal struggles, learning from my mistakes, being curious about the voice and teaching hundrets of students over more than 10 years has equipped me with a lot of tools and techniques that I am more than happy to share with you!
If you would like to overcome your physical and mental barriers, I'd be more than happy to help you on this journey to own your voice and develop vocal confidence.
My Mission & Approach
My approach to teaching stems from my curiosity towards the voice and people. I love to help someone experience the hidden power and freedom within their voice. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to singing, that's why I treat every student as the inidividual they are. I make up exercises on the fly if neccessary to get my students to find what they need. I absolutely love this job 🙂

Areas Of Specialty
My curiosity about vocal technique combined with my experience have equipped me with many tools and techniques to help you to discover the best version of your voice.
The Mental side of singing
An often overlooked topic is the mental side of singing. I have tools to get you out or your head and tap into the power of your voice.
