Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy centers around the belief that technical mastery and artistic expression are intertwined and mutually reinforcing. As a private voice teacher and in the classroom, I strive to create a balance between discipline and fun. I believe that a consistent technical foundation is essential to building confidence as an artist, and I emphasize key areas such as breath, registration, alignment, resonance, and articulation to increase freedom and emotional expression in performance. 


I approach my teaching with a warm and candid style, fostering trust with my students so that feedback is a positive and collaborative experience. I often use physicalization and science-based imagery to help students better understand and execute vocal techniques. My students are encouraged to set their own goals and work towards them with my guidance and support, selecting repertoire that will help them achieve those goals. 


As a member of both NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and NOA (National Opera association), I stay up-to-date with the latest developments and best practices in vocal pedagogy, incorporating these into my lessons as appropriate. My ultimate mission as a teacher is to help my students develop their full potential as artists and to instill in them a lifelong love and appreciation of singing and performing.
