Take your voice to the next level? 

 Perhaps you have never had lessons before or you have had a few lessons but didn’t get what you needed.  Either way I’m guessing you’re here because you are going out on a limb and are once again trying something new.  Way to go! I applaud you on your courage and hunger to look for guidance with your music and creativity.

Here’s what I can do for you…

Private musical instruction, especially vocal instruction can be very personal. That’s why I understand how important it is to facilitate a nurturing environment to get the best results from my students. Here I can help you not only develop your sound but through vocal exercise and vocal education I can guide you on a journey that takes you back to producing sound efficiently. You will find that you last longer and your passion will only grow. Take a look at my services and start your journey today!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

With all my support,



Let's Work Together


It's time to connect Mind, Body and Spirit and there's no time like now. With my 15 years of experience I strongly believe that we must understand and connect to our own unique bodies to create the most efficient sound.  Singing should lift the spirit and through vocal exercise we can share that with people in a healthier way. I also make a point of staying involved in the music industry and current with the latest trends and research.

The Voice Teacher and Music Mentor

Though I spent many years performing and traveling I would always find myself teaching. It soon became clear that my passions had shifted and  I loved being behind the scenes. I found great joy sharing everything I know to people seeking guidance with their gifts. I now have a client list that ranges from young vocal students, to those looking for a weekly musical experience, to those currently working in the music industry and now even to other vocal teachers. I find joy in helping people discover and reach new potential.

Voice Lessons
Voice Masterclass


Currently I am only taking private students on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays between 1 pm to 8 pm. I'm always available for a 1-hr vocal tune up session anytime. I can work with students via Zoom, Skype, Face-Time and Google Duo or in my private studio in Somerset KY.

I also love supporting new artists and helping them build a plan. I provide monthly Artist Development sessions. These are meetings with new artists creating strategies for recording their first album or for those wanting to learn more about the music industry.

I also have Facebook group for all of my past and current student. There I share tips, monthly vocal workouts and giveaways. It's also a place for people to support each other in a loving online environment.
