Personal Statement

Voice study allows the singer to take technical and artistic areas of learning and translate them to emotional expression. Courage, perseverance and an open mind are key to becoming a great singer. The voice studio is a safe and constructive environment where the student can be free to try new ways of thinking and to experiment with new sounds. Singing unites mind, body, and spirit. It can carry us to a place unreachable by any other path.
