Bio
  • Currently I teach through the School of Music programs at Millikin University. My voice studio includes high school and college students, and other individuals from the ages of 15 through 78 years old. I teach “Classical” voice, Musical Theatre, and other contemporary commercial music (CCM) styles, as per the student's interests, ability, and goals. I am voice science and Somatic Voicework™ enthusiast. I strive to help my students to discover their instrument, and to achieve freedom in their singing, avoiding manipulation or a manufactured sound. All goals, working towards musical expression and communication.
