Teaching Approach I want my students to come into my studio knowing they’re in a safe space to explore, challenge themselves, and develop as a musical artist. In doing so, students will learn the fundamentals of proper vocal technique focusing on proper body support, breathing, breath support, and intonation. Once the foundation is understood students will begin to explore repertoire suitable for their voice facilitating languages, musicality, and connection with their work.
