What ages do you teach?
I am tone deaf or have no musical talent. Can you teach me to sing?
I teach all ages from 6 and up from beginner to experienced musicians.
What style of singing do you teach?
Yes! I focus on a narrow range and I use an expanding technique that develops confidence.
I can teach all styles of singing, as my main focus is on efficiency of technique and power of vocal control.
