Have you wanted to try singing lessons for a long time?  Now is the time to let your voice shine! Let go of fear and explore the beauty and power of your one-of-a-kind voice!

Want to fine-tune your breath control, or strengthen your belt/mix? Or maybe your vocal range has changed and you want to get back in shape…Whatever your level and style, I can empower you with more confidence, stronger technique, and exercises to loosen up those golden vocal cords. You’ll feel more confident, poised and happy when you allow your full voice to shine.  It can even be easier to speak up for yourself, once you feel the power of your own voice.

I am Massachusetts Certified for Music Teaching K-12 and I work with singers at every level. From Broadway babies to pop singers; from church choirs to jazz and opera singers, everyone has a unique voice and it’s exciting to discover it!  We’ll create a safe, fun environment to give you performance techniques that you can use the rest of your life, including warm-ups, breath control, and integration of chest & head voice. Discover how to choose the right song for your voice and personality, how to deal with stage fright and get the confidence to back-up the unique gift you’ve been given.
