The minimum age for beginning voice study is generally 15.
Each voice matures at its own rate. An initial consultation can determine the student's readiness to start voice study. There is no maximum age for voice study! Lessons are usually weekly. Regular attendance as well as steady practice will yield the best results.
Payment by cash or check - either in advance, or at the time of the lesson is requested. The Lesson Time is reserved exclusively for the student. 24 hour advance notice of cancellation is required. The student must pay for any lessons not cancelled in advance. In this, as in all things, there is also grace and sometimes forgiveness!
Lesson and Recital Recording
The student should bring an SD Card for use in my digital recorder, or some other recording device of their choosing. Recording of lessons can be very helpful in the development of technical and expressive skills. Recitals are video recorded as a valuable tool for seeing progress over time.

30 hours of intensive training in all areas of singing performance. Vocal Technique, Acting, Stage Movement, Interpretation, Dance, Phonetics, Alexander Technique, Improv, and much more.
These small group classes are limited to 5 singers. This
format gives the singer a chance to work on a wide range of performance skills. Acting and song interpretation are best learned through experience. Singers are guided to experiment with expression and movement. Classes are twice per month and are available on a first come first reserved basis for a small fee.
My Studio is located on Spokane's South Hill. Lessons are Monday-Friday and scheduling is best done over the phone. Contact me for rates and availability.
Aria Boot Camp
This intensive workshop is designed for singers who have some experience with operatic arias. It is especially valuable for Audition Preparation as it deepens and enhances expression. Analysis of the dramatic context along with specific performance styles and true understanding of the text will bring your aria to life! Workshops usually take place over the course of a week with classes on weeknights and Saturday with a Sunday performance. Before and After videos help singers mark progress in their performance.
Studio Recitals take place at Holy Names Music Center's McNally Recital Hall and are scheduled six times between October and June. Students are encouraged but not required to participate. These informal recitals are a stepping stone to more formal performance opportunities. The goal of singing in a recital tends to focus and motivate practice.
