"My voice never felt so free!" "I can hit high notes that I never knew I had before." "Your skills in teaching popular singing styles as well as classical technique and the electricity you create make you an invaluable pedagogue." Podiumkunstwerk, The Netherlands

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Each student is unique: bone structure, personality all vary. Hence, I have no one "method" aside from good breath support and relaxation. Beyond that, it depends on the student's needs.
