My goal as a teacher is to help you find your unique singing voice. A voice that is free from tension and free to express as you desire. I emphasize proper body and head alignment along with a relaxed tongue and jaw. I feel it is important for any singer to be able to sing in a legit manner as well as in a belt or a mix. If you truly understand various styles, then you have the freedom to create any sound you'd like as long as it's done healthfully.
