The Voice Studio
I teach in order to share my life's passions. I teach in order to help you find your life's passions. People who have found their passions know the freedom of discipline, respect others, and have opportunities to make contributions to the culture of humanity - perhaps even to the culture of the planet! If your passions live in my territory, I'll do my best to help you make a set of maps. If you can't find your passions in my vicinity, they do exist somewhere. It's your responsibility to find, develop and manifest them. Go with my love.
The following documents are designed for students of singing, whether in my own studio, receiving short-term coaching, or just visiting this site. I am grateful to the many wonderful teachers who have encouraged me, and from whom this material is developed. Enjoy!
