Teaching Philosophy:

I believe that both singing and speech work are to be developed separately, and gradually blended together during development.  My voice teaching focuses on muscular tension release and coordinated articulatory skills. Speech training is explored with new possibilities of range of tone and rate of articulation. Only after first working on the attack of sound onto the vocal chords in the development phase are specific patterns for dialects introduced.
