ONLINE LESSONS AVAILABLE
I am now taking new students in Nashville, Tennessee as well as Phoenix, AZ and around the globe via Skype. I'm currently spending most of my time near the Berry Hill area in Nashville, but I am still available for my Phoenix students by appointment. Contact me for availability and specials.
I specialize in teaching healthy voice technique for popular music and helping singers find more vocal freedom within, to better express themselves.
As an experienced singer songwriter and lead vocalist of several bands, I bring a lot of real world experience to my students, and can help you hone your performance skills, improve your songs, gain a better mindset, and lose those inhibitions that are holding you back! My approach is holistic and my training is based in vocal science. Having a diverse musical history ranging from pop, r&b, punk, emo, folk, indie, to big band, classical, musical theater, and black gospel, I am able to understand and teach students within the style that they feel most passionate about. I also work with students interested in improving their speaking voice.
