Private Voice Lessons by instructor with a Master of Music Degree in Voice and Piano from Drake University and BM from the Conservatory of Music in Kansas City. I have performed and taught many styles from Opera to Broadway, Belt, Popular, etc. and have taught beginner through College Level students.
Former students have appeared in touring Musical Theater Shows (USA and Europe), Broadway Shows, Dinner Theater, etc. and have won National and State competitions. I worked as Opera Coach for Drake, UMKC Conservatory, UCF, etc. I have coached High School students working on Music Theater roles and students preparing audition material.
Lessons have a strong emphasis on vocal technique, breath control, projection, vocal health, style and performance preparation, strong reading skills and recording studio preparation. I also teach Music Theory and Composition, Sightsinging, and Audition skills.
I have performed classical solos with orchestra (Handel's 'Messiah'), "Phantom of the Opera" shows for conventions, as well as Shows with Popular style music, Standards with Jazz Bands, Celtic shows with groups, and studio recording work in various styles.
