Singing Lessons

Whether you are just starting out or a pro looking for techniques to improve your endurance and artistry, voice lessons can help you reach your goals. I hold a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Memphis, where I studied opera and classical singing. I work with singers in a variety of genres on improving their vocal function and efficiency, using the Blaylock Vocal Method and over a decade of teaching and performing experience.

Piano Lessons

Piano is a fun and versatile instrument for all ages. With piano clients, I work from the Piano Pronto method books, which offer an exciting and motivating experience of playing familiar melodies while developing foundational techniques for beginning and intermediate students.

Trans Voice

Some transgender and non-binary folks may wish to change the way that they speak or sing to more fully reflect their gender identity. I use Liz Jackson Hearns’ book One Weird Trick: A User’s Guide to Transgender Voice as a guide for this work. Working with a voice professional can provide many benefits, which will vary as each client’s voice and experiences are unique.
