"Students need more than just the right vocal information. Most importantly, they need an intuitive
response to their personality.". Singing requires a vulnerability to open yourself up. It is a spiritual
journey-when you're exploring your voice, you're exploring yourself. It is paramount to me to create a
positive, safe haven of learning for every one of my singers."
