I am a Voice Maven.
I get up in your business and force you to do uncomfortable things.
Why do I do this?
So you can tell incredible stories. Chisel paths for audiences to feel all the feels.
Oh, and stick it to all the people that told you that being on stage, or using your voice in public, or teaching voice for a living, was a terrible career choice.
How do you want to use your voice?
… On it.
Italian Art Song?
… You Bet.
Commercial Music like Rock and Pop?
… So on board.
… TedTalk, here we come.
Confidence while interacting with the other humans?
… Let’s own it.
… Not so much, but I know a gal.
Wearing Classical Glasses and Serving Contemporary Needs
It’s how I was trained. Starting out with this foundation gave me the tools and discipline to pursue training in Pop/Rock/Jazz (commercial) and Musical Theatre techniques. All training I pursue goes back to my high school voice teacher’s ability to see that I could cross-train, and cross-over genres. So whether I’m gigging with a Jazz trio, or performing with a symphony, solid technique is my foundation. And, it’s how we’ll work to get your voice doing what it needs to do, with health, efficiency, and consistency. More importantly, you’ll get it doing what you want it to do.
Solid technique is the launching point to knowing and loving your instrument. There are different ways for you to play your voice, and knowing them gives you a breadth and depth of sound that serves your audience.
