An opera director recently told me at an audition:
“for someone who has been singing and teaching as long as you, your voice is in great shape!”
Maybe I’m doing something right.
from many fine teachers and colleagues:
a healthy, effective singing technique for myself, and how to pass it on.
from students of all levels and styles:
that the shared teacher-student experience improves us both.
from audiences around the world:
singers have a unique way to communicate beauty to everyone.
Whether you communicate in the language of Puccini or Porter, Schumann or Sondheim,
