Thanks for helping us do what we do! Grateful for people like you that teach musicians how to sing and play in ways that promote health and healing.
True Confessions without TMI
I “hear” in pictures,
“see” in patterns, and
“listen” with highly trained somatic perception.
I also scored 99% on the science portion of standardized tests. So it’s been natural to embrace Vocal Pedagogy and Voice Science as a way to structure and inform my open senses.
MM in Vocal Pedagogy and Performance, University of Maryland, College Park, MD
BM in Vocal Performance, Minor in Collaborative Piano, The College of Wooster, Ohio
Certificate in ‘Leadership through Emotional Intelligence’ from Case Western Reserve’s Departments of Business & Psychology
Certification in Somatic VoiceWork™: The Lovetri Method followed by years spent becoming a highly experienced and nuanced practitioner
Post-graduate credits in Classical and Contemporary Vocal Pedagogy
I’ve experienced a severe health history as an adult. There weren’t “cracks,” so much as full blown Earthquakes over a 28-year period, that let the light in. In spite of this, I was blessed to have a credible career as a singer for many years, along with a vital private singing studio and institution affiliations.
But as a result, I’ve studied the human body, psyche and singing for a long time. I needed to do so for my own singing and the thousands of singers who have come to me over many years.
I’ve personally experienced the wonder and joy of the neuroplasticity of the brain for deep healing and vibrant singing. I understand, viscerally, that we are electric beings made up of sound waves that can be tuned, with guidance from heart-centered experts.
The Bottom Line
All this is pretty useless for you, the client or student. Unless I can teach in an embodied, useful and fun way!
It’s what I love to do.
