Singing Lessons

Experience the joy of having a stronger, more beautiful and resonant voice. Whatever your age or musical experience, you can have the deep satisfaction of singing well. Your confidence will grow along with your voice, as you apply what you learn in exercises and songs. You are welcome to try a lesson and see how you like it. 

I structure the lessons so that about half is spent developing your voice: strength, agility and a richer sound are the things that most beginners need. Learning to use your breath is a big part of that. Then the other half is for songs. I encourage singers to try a variety of styles, though some kinds of songs are more helpful for your vocal training than others. We'll record exercises and songs on a cassette tape so you can practice on your own. 

My specialty is building the voice. But I also enjoy working with individuals and groups to:

  • prepare for solo or choir auditions
  • add extra polish and style, for the songs of your ensemble
  • help choral groups develop a better sound
  • help singers learn tough parts, and make practice recordings
  • learn to sing in tune, if that's a challenge.


Lessons are 1 hour, 3/4 hour or 1/2 hour, depending on your time, budget and personal goals.  Usually I recommend that you start with a one-hour lesson, in which we can find out what's happening with your voice and get you started on the basics. After that, most beginning students will have a 3/4 hour or 1/2 hour lesson per week. 

Private lessons are Tuesday through Friday

"From the first lesson my fear dissipated. You were incredibly warm and supportive. Every lesson since has been the same. I leave each session feeling inspired and full of joy..."

Please avoid odours, even pleasant ones, at lessons, classes, choir and performances.  Perfume, essential oils, hairspray, residual smoke or alcohol, can be troublesome, especially for those with allergies.
