previous students have said:

“…Thank You…for sharing your knowledge with me, making me a better performer, and giving me a very happy, long lasting memory…You taught me that singing isn’t all about technique…it’s just listening to the music and telling a story.”

“Your fine-tuned training and instincts as a performer really helped me to find the confidence I needed on stage. I was also able with your help to discover restraint and to find the quiet meaning in a song by pulling back and letting it happen rather than forcing it.”

“I was ready to pack it in for cabaret… But I'm back on the path now. Lead on!”

“Thank you for designing a course that invites our selves in as if we are already musicians…for your kind way of looking at us and your careful listening for possibilities and potential…for the gentleness and generosity of your suggestions…and for being such an excellent model of how to perform.”

“She moved me and my classmates from tense and tentative to nearly polished in one short term.”

“I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your time and unending support! You're the best.”

“Thank you for a wonderful experience working with you. It truly was a milestone—a triumph for me…”

“Thanks again for raising the level of the bar and making me stretch. Thanks more so for touching my life with your humor, wit, and your nurturing.”

“Your teaching, coaching and encouragement have been invaluable.”

“I really appreciated how you can bring out the best in each individual person and how you care about people. Thank you for sharing yourself and your talent with me.”

“The joy I had taking this class was enormous.”

“Without your love and support and generosity my ‘star’ could never have risen.”

“You've helped me beyond words.”
