My duty as a voice teacher and a singing voice scientist is to bridge the gap between art and science and to translate between two distinct professional languages. My teaching aims to help students and clients to find their authentic voice in order to communicate more effectively, while my research aims to put pedagogical methods and beliefs through a more objective crucible.
I try to ensure that my instruction is humanizing and that it affirms my students as individuals who bring their own knowledge and diverse backgrounds. Evidence-based training is foundational to my pedagogy as a voice teacher, but it is secondary to helping my students to foster authenticity and eudaimonia.
