Celebration Concert at Follen Church, April 12, 2008


To explore the expressive possibilities of your voice is to embark on an adventure. For over thirty years I have come to know my voice, myself and others through singing, speaking, teaching and learning. There is no instrument so immediate, powerful and uniquely human.

The human voice lives in a dance of conscious and unconscious movement. A baby is born, and with the first breath comes the first cry. We breathe, we sigh; we laugh and cry, we speak and sing—a wellspring of our thoughts and emotions. Through speaking and singing we connect with others and are present in the world.

In working with students and clients it is essential to proceed with sensitivity and respect for both their immediate goals and unspoken concerns. Your voice is an integral part of who you are and must be approached in an integrative way to produce deep and lasting results. Vocal presence cannot be separated from personal presence.

Whether you decide to explore your voice for professional, recreational or therapeutic reasons, the rewards are many and immensely satisfying.
