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 unusual, er, “senses.”


Education

BM in Vocal Performance, Minor in Collaborative Piano

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

There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the Light gets in. 
— Leonard Cohen

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.

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 do.
