Tiny Voice Box
My students are...performing professionally in music clubs, bars, and other venues. performing at The Kalamazoo Civic Theatre, The Paw Paw Village Players, Kindleberger Summer Festival Community Theatre, and in middle and high school musical productions. attending Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp and Western Michigan University's "Seminar" Summer Music Camp, and New York City's "Triple Threat Program." auditioning for "The X Factor," singing in pageants, acting in movies and commercials. writing and recording their own music. receiving scholarships from arts councils and performing arts organizations. entering national competitions. singing solo in church. playing guitar or piano to accompany themselves.

I could teach a few other things, but I'm a voice specialist. Here's how I describe the students in my studio and who will typically match well with my teaching style.

Young people who...are high school or middle school age. are seeking well-rounded vocal preparation that emphasizes contemporary music styles. want to (or are already) performing in school and community productions. are considering a career in the performing arts or going to college for music. may have had previous vocal training, or are just beginning.

Professional or amateur musicians/vocalists who...seek to improve their vocal abilities. need to work on problem issues. want support and guidance for their career.

Adults who...want to (or are already) singing in church or with a community group. curiously drawn to singing lessons for some other reason (let's talk!).
