Voice Teacher

Philosophy and Background   

Every individual has a "voice" print as unique as their fingerprint. Helping students to discover the instrument within them is one of my life's passions. Whether you want to pursue a career as a musical theater performer, improve your stamina for long choral rehearsals, or expand your range and improve your tone and bring your character to life for that next audition, I will help you to understand how your voice works - that amazing combination of Body, Breath & Soul - and guide you to your goals in a healthy and positive way with exercises and repertoire. 

Sessions occur at Body Breath and Soul Vocal Studio in Saint Petersburg Florida.

I like to cook. When I know what I want to eat – the flavors, ingredient elements that are calling me – then the whole process is fun. Sourcing the ingredients, planning the cooking process, making the dish, and the finally eating it. It’s all fun and part of the process to go from idea/desire to outcome. 

Performing is much the same way. You…

The OM & Singing 

From Nothing to All things via Vibration 

What’s in Your Hum? 

Bhramari or Bee breathing is the simple, yet profound, act of inhaling and exhaling with humming. The sound of the hum is produced by when changes in air pressure around the vocal folds cause them to vibrate, creating sound waves which engage with closed lips.  Voila – a buzzing sound! It’s fascinating and mind blowing to me that changes in air pressure around a vibrating material can create sound by transferring seemingly…

  • 3. Spend deeper and richer time in the community of yoga practitioners with whom I feel a kindred spirit in our quest for wholeness 

Following each weekend of YTT…
