Fearless at my Licensing Exam
I’m just calling to share Good News, because with doing Brain Gym and feeling so centered I did my Unity Teacher licensing exam last week and I got straight A’s, and it’s the first time this little dyslexic has ever ended up with straight A’s in her life.

Sing Better!

Since I started directing two local choruses, people have been asking if I would “teach them to sing”. As a pianist and choral conductor, I can help you sing better and more comfortably in the choral setting. I can also help you develop your skills in music reading and theory, and have a lot of fun in the process! 

I am offering singing classes for small groups. These sessions include a mixture of basic vocal production, development of music reading skills, and singing in harmony.

Class One: Singing Basics to Get Started in Choral Singing

This class is for people who have little or no vocal experience, especially singing together with other people. We will explore:

  • Breathing and sound production techniques
  • Sharpening your “musician’s ear”
  • Singing in tune
  • Singing a melody so it really sounds like the song
  • Beginnings of singing in harmony

To accomplish all this, we will do vocal warmups, sing simple melodies and rounds, and explore some beginnings of singing in harmonies. Although we will develop skills that will support music reading, there will be no actual music-reading in this class.

Class Two: Advancing Skills for the Choral Singer

Do already have some experience singing in a chorus? Would you like to improve your sound and also your music reading ability? This is the class for you. You will:

  • Improve your ability to sing in tune with others
  • Develop your music reading skills - PITCH. Learn to sing and recognize melodic intervals on the page and by ear. 
  • Develop your music reading skills – RHYTHM. Rhythm is the most abstract element to decipher from sheet music. It can also be the one element that gives you the quickest boost in your music reading abilities and makes you a more solid, supportive choral singer. And if you ask me, rhythm is REALLY fun to work on!
