By audition and interview, or agent inquiry only.
After initial contact we will set up your Initial Fit Session to make sure I am the right vocal expert for you.
If you are an agent/manager making an inquiry on behalf of your client, please contact me to discuss your client's needs. If your client has had a diagnosis of vocal fold injury or has had vocal fold surgery, I am qualified to work with them as a singing voice rehabilitation specialist, voice teacher and vocal coach, in that order. You are welcome to sit in on sessions, and I promise to work as a team with you to ensure your client’s privacy should that be a concern.

…helps unkink the body from habits that interfere with free expression and movement. The word somatic comes from the Greek word, “soma,” which means “living body.” Somatic education helps to reunite the relationship among the body, mind and Spirit. Names of familiar modes of “somatic education” that I have studied and practice myself are yoga, Alexander Technique, myofascial release, the work of Suzan Postal of The Body Sings, and movement therapies including tribal belly dance and dance as organic animal movement.
