I believe every voice is a unique gem. With the correct training and polishing we bring out it's shimmering radiance. Enhance the true beauty and power of your voice.  Whether you are a beginner, advanced or professional singer I have the background and experience to help you maintain, strengthen and further develop your voice. My technique ensures that the sound you produce is free, supported and beautifully yours.

Maximize your range. Through specific and targeted exercises I can help you achieve a strong and easily produced chest voice, bring out and strengthen your mid range and extend your upper register. Together we will choose music you enjoy singing and which will challenge and assist your vocal growth. Musical and dramatic coaching are also provided.
