What's Holistic?

A mind/body approach to singing (and life).

Are you worried about hitting those high notes?

Dealing with performance anxiety?

Never feeling good enough?

You are not alone. I've dealt with all of those things too, and so have all of my students.

Traditional lessons focus only on the voice. But I know that you are so much more than just a voice. You have past experiences, emotions, and stories in you that need to be witnessed and embraced if you are going to shed fear and feel fully free, expressive and confident on stage. That's where the holistic approach comes in.

We work diligently on your vocal and artistic development and at the same time,

we make space what's going on in your head, heart, body and spirit.
