A little about me...

 

Singing and teaching singing are my passion.  Growing up, I raided my parents record collection and was exposed to a variety of genres that include opera, musicals, symphonies, dixieland, jazz and and much more! As my musical tastes developed, I found joy in a wide range of musical styles.  Because of this, I have enjoyed singing and teaching different styles, although my training is rooted in classical technique. 

My musical training began in 4th grade with cello lessons.  I really wanted to play the horn, but when I was unable to produce a tone, the cello was suggested and I loved it.  I still play on occasion and that "instrumental" side informs much of my teaching, performing and conducting.  Singing became my passion in 9th grade and after I attended choral camp at Truman State University (then, Northeast Missouri State University) I was hooked!
