DMA Voice and PhD Musicology (ABD, 2023) - University of North Texas
My take is that every person has a different instrument, mindset, goal, pace, and sensitivity: no person is the same. I do not believe in "one-size-fits-all" approaches, so I take every case differently.
I generally take the first lesson to get to know the students' goals, preferences, voice, etc., and the first tutoring session as an individual experience.

In Missouri I taught voice and music theory as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at a University of Missouri and, later, at Mexico Missouri Presser Performing Arts Center. I had a voice studio of ca. 10 students each semester, including of musical theater performers, opera singers, and other musicians.
In the DFW area I have worked at music academies and have my own private studio. I also frequently give individual vocal coaching session, currently on-line only.
