Nurturing vocal ease and expression with insightful, tailored coaching.

As a dedicated vocal coach with over 20 years of experience, I specialize in empowering aspiring and established professional singers to achieve vocal efficiency and master contemporary sounds across all registers.

I believe that everyone, regardless of experience or genre, would find greater joy in singing if it felt better*.  My teaching philosophy combines a deep understanding of voice mechanics with attentive listening to vocal indications to select targeted vocal exercises that enhance and refine vocal production.

*’Better’ varies by individual but typically involves less pain, reduced strain, fewer sensations of unwanted constriction, and a greater feeling of vocal flow and ease.

Ideal Student Profile

Experience Levels

Aspiring and established professionals: Singers committed to elevating their craft and pursuing professional growth or performers active in tours, musical theatre, or recording sessions, seeking to refine their vocal skills.

Students who show curiosity about voice mechanics, have a good work ethic (are dedicated to consistent practice and improvement), and have ambition in the professional singing world.


My Story

With a journey that began in 2004, I delved into the SLS technique, drawn to its tangible, sports-training-like approach, and became a certified instructor and Vocology in Practice (VIP) teacher in 2011. My curiosity about motivation psychology enriches my teaching, helping me align closely with my students.

Serving on the VIP board since 2015, I thrive on learning, challenging the status quo, and applying first principle thinking. My extensive performing experience, including singing for King Charles, TV work, and international corporate engagements, equips me with a deep understanding of the working singer’s demands.
