When I was 8 years old, I sat in the emptying house of a summer stock musical, unable to leave or let go of the seat back in front of me. I told my mother,
"I can do that. I am going to do that."
In the four decades that have followed, that passion has never diminished. Musical storytelling simply has a power like no other. Honoring the form requires not only technical vocal prowess but also a willingness to lay that ability at the feet of a STORY. In addition to humility, that requires an equal facility with analyzing the text, both musical & verbal, of every song you sing. Your artistic fingerprint lies in that analysis & your ability to bring it to life.
In my studio we are never in search of a voice other than your own. Together we will find that voice & make it strong. We will nurture it alongside your storytelling skills & develop the technical confidence that will allow you to follow your spontaneous impulses in service of the stories you want to tell.
I can't wait to work with you!
