MY MISSION STATEMENT
"It is my pledge to do everything possible to help you develop your vocal talents and to grow with you in
your discovery of music. As a Vocal teacher, I believe that everyone has the right to sing and enjoy beautiful music. Students are challenged to explore vocal possibilities and expand their horizons. Each lesson is meant to help the student learn self awareness, self expression and to convey that expression in their singing."
