About the lesson
I have had success with singers from across many genres and levels of skill. My teaching approach will come from you, and your particular goals.
---> For those who are in an early discovery phase, I want to nurture that excitement and encourage you to try new things, while providing support through structure and grounded technique. This is a very exciting time. Congratulations!
---> For those who are further along in their journey, I can help fine tune and style vocal performances which are already crafted, restructure technique which has proven to be unsustainable, and bring light to the unknown (and often quite beautiful) sides of the voice which you haven't used yet.
- > Free your voice through grounding, breath control, & posture
- > Develop technique for healthy vocal production
- > Sing your favourite songs
- > Fine-tune through ear training & vowels
- > Experiment with tone
- > Develop a personalized vocal warm up
I am a pianist with an understanding of music theory, which sets me apart from many tutors. This allows me to provide you with a grounded understanding of how your voice relates to the world of music. It also means that I can record rehearsal tracks of warm ups and songs so that you can effectively take advantage of your rehearsal time.
- > Most of all remember... FUN is mandatory! It’s SO IMPORTANT to find joy in your work. < -
(I use elements of Estill technique, and the Laryngeal Conditioning System, which I studied in the UK.)
I am a Toronto-based singer, actor, and songwriter with a variety of experience across Canada and the UK, where I earned my Master of Arts in Musical Theatre(Guildford School of Acting). My in-depth studies of the pop/rock, jazz, and classical genres have led me to a belief... Every sound you make is not only usable, but also beautiful. Embrace your voice! It is my job to help you do this, and to guide you to producing sounds that you can be proud of. Singing is a holistic process, and it’s so awesome that you are taking the steps to make it happen for yourself!
For the children & young adults who love to bust out their favourite tunes for loved ones, & for the emerging professionals who are searching for fine-tuning and confidence, I’m here for you! This is what inspires me to help you reach your goals and shine as a singer. I welcome you to my private studio(COVID regulations in place), or to a virtual meeting, where we can learn some music, make some noise, and most importantly, have fun while doing it.
