Bio
  • I currently teach at Capital University and for a local high school in Columbus. My private studio is out of my home and serves a wide variety of singers from middle school age and up. My school aged students learn singing fundamentals and three singing styles (Classical, Musical Theater, & Other Contemporary). Adult students typically have one or two genres they enjoy most and we focus on those styles.
