I am a Doctoral student at the University of North Texas with 3 years of experience teaching college level students as a Teaching Fellow in Voice at UNT. I currently work with HEB ISD and BISD teaching private lessons to Junior High age students. I enjoy working with a variety of age groups, styles and skill levels. I have extensive experience as a recitalist, church soloist and as an opera singer and I specialize in classical voice. I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) and the College Music Society (CMS). *** Lesson Details *** I teach all styles and types of music and I always want my students to really connect with and enjoy the songs they sing. I like all my students to have a good foundation in the 'basics' of good voice production. No matter what kind of music, the fundamentals of posture and good breath support are the first things I address with any new student. I use vocal exercises tailored to the individual student's needs and goals. After the first 3 months or so a committed student will improve their breath control and coordination and improve the strength and stamina of their voice. I find that personal confidence in all areas of life is improved by the process of understanding and developing the voice. *** Studio Equipment *** Living room w/ electronic keyboard, laptop, and seating for parents *** Travel Equipment *** I provide my own copies of music. Student should provide their own copy of any music or books necessary. Student should provide a piano or keyboard for lessons involving music (not necessary for speech). *** Specialties *** *Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I enjoy teaching all styles, from pop and rock, jazz and blues to Broadway and classical voice. As a performer I specialize in classical/operatic singing including choral styles.
