Doctoral Degree in Music Performance and Theory from University of Michigan
25+ years performing, coaching, conducting, and training students in singing and guitar playing
I love all styles of music and singing and have done all them (including some rap!! :)
I believe in building on natural processes and building confidence in proper sensations of singing and performing. Talent is great... but attitude and willingness to have fun and experiment are better.
I have been performing music, singing, and guitar since childhood, and have since added up to doctoral degree training in music, voice performance, Music theory. I've taught all levels of students from Elementary and MIddle School, High School, many many college students, and adults for 25+ Years.
I also have performed on stage, with orchestras, in church, as a soloist, guitar player, worship leader... so I know how to apply the techniques I teach personally. And what it is like to face auditions, manage a schedule, keep honing skills and maintain a professional level of performing quality.
