Commercial Music Training
Relax. Take a breath. You found me.
AND.... you found me because you fit one or more of the following descriptions:
You were trained as a classical vocalist and want to sing commercial styles but don’t know how to find your mix
You wanna sing jazz but terms like “swing-feel” or the idea of talking to a band about intros and tags, picking the right keys, and 'sitting in’ freaks you out
You haven't found a voice teacher that values the commercial styles you love and want to sing
You are already a working professional and you are feeling fatigued during or after your gigs/shows and you need to figure out how to keep singing without losing your voice. You need a vocal hygiene plan.
Well.....I'VE GOT YOU
I KNOW singers because I am a singer and most importantly, I’ve been where you are.
Why is this my focus? Because...
I was classically trained and worked professionally in theatre for many years and although I deeply appreciate my musical education and theatrical experiences, I've seen a dismissal amongst voice teachers and academia with regard to commercial music (jazz, pop, rock, county, R&B, etc). So, I decided to put all my expertise and experience into creating a studio where voice students can study the music they love most. Classical music isn't all there is and no, you DON'T have to learn classical music to sing well. The fact is, learning to sing classical while longing to sing rock is like asking an athlete who wants to play for the NBA to train for the NFL. Singers are athletes and must train accordingly. In my studio, we train based on the SINGER'S goals and dreams...no one else's.
I work with established professionals AND serious goal-oriented vocalists who are looking for instruction in commercial music styles.
