Voice coaching services offered from a classically-trained professional singer and graduate of VCU and Eastman School of Music (Rochester, NY). Well versed in the popular genres, I will conduct coaching sessions to help with problems of intonation, breathing/phrasing, support, and other such issues regarding the art form of singing. This is not to be confused with voice lessons. I will essentially be polishing the work that has already been done and, as a result, bringing out the true essence of the music. I can help with virtually any genre. The options are limitless and depends on your need. We can set up a weekly time, if desired.
