TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

            My teaching philosophy has evolved throughout my life in music and has been constantly informed by all the wonderful experiences I have had in music throughout my career. These experiences have made me think and rethink what voice is about and throughout it all I have gained a wider and deeper understanding of what my mission is as a voice teacher.

 

WHY DO I TEACH?

BECAUSE...

 

  • I love people!

  • I love to pass on the knowledge of singing that I acquired and I have worked on for more than twenty-five years…and am still working on.

  • teaching voice is my passion and I want to implement the passion of singing in as many people’s hearts that I can.

  • I like to help my student’s dreams to become reality.

 

WHO DO I TEACH?

 

  • Anyone that loves to sing and can carry a tune!

  • All ages are welcome in my studio!

 

            I believe that each of my students is unique and thus I approach each student individually. I think that the long-standing school of teaching “do what I do, imitate me”, is long past. My main goal in my teaching is to guide my students in finding their “own voice”, their “own sound” based on my deep knowledge of the physiology, anatomy and acoustics of the singing voice. Each one of my students receives a voice lesson that is tailored to his/her individual needs.
