In the United States, voice teachers use a mix of vocal techniques from the traditions of Italy, England, and Germany. With input from Local and University Teachers, the National Association of Teachers of Singing, and a lifetime of singing...I have developed a system of teaching that meets each singer where they are and develops their natural singing voice.
I offer this training to the teachers that teach for Groh Music and to the students who enroll. Elements on this training include:
- Exercises that develop a student's vocal range
- Train the singers ear to match pitches
- Mentor and build self understanding and confidence
- Techniques that develop their sight-singing and listening skills
By opening a door to your dreams and goals, we can meet you where you are and give you the steps it takes to - not only reach, but exceed your goals. If you would like to know more about our Teachers, Training, and Lesson options, enjoy the website and explore the possibilies.
