I see the star in you!
“I'm regaining some vocal function faster than I expected to. All your advice was great and the targeted exercises are helpful, but mostly, you actually helped me get it in my head that I could do it again. . . I felt on top of the world!”
— Music Studio Producer and Performer, Age 54
Where do we begin? First we'll get to know each other at the 90-minute "Hello Lesson." (This is the required first step for all new students.) We'll determine where you are musically, evaluate your vocal health, and talk about what you want to learn (and how you want to learn it). There will be a lot of music-making! Bring your own music if you like. If you sing while playing an instrument, bring it along to your lesson! Or we can just cue up music on your phone. I have karaoke tracks and music books here, too!
Who should have a Hello Lesson? You should — and, in fact, you must: If we’ve never met before for a lesson, you must start with the “Hello Lesson.” (Are you under 18, or the parent of a talented young person? I’d like to chat with you before you book. Please click here to contact me before scheduling your Hello Lesson.)

Had your Hello Lesson, and you're ready for more? This is the fun part, folks. I'll design a Custom Studio Package of lessons and performance opportunities just for you, suited to your goals, needs, and timeframe. Packages include wonderful goodies that you won’t find in any other voice studio. Once you have a package, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without one! Packages can include benefits such as:
Videos of you rehearsing (you’ll progress faster)
Custom audio tracks
Music history notes
Membership in the private ECMS Facebook group
Music theory instruction
Survival piano (a little or a lot!)
Letters of recommendation
Audition video recording and editing (including college auditions)
Monologue research and coaching
Referrals to qualified performance coaches
Free sheet music
Free karaoke tracks
Free access to online music learning programs
Free or discounted fees for studio performance opportunities and competitions
. . . And more!
Not interested in a package? (Are you sure? Did you just read that list? ;) That’s fine! Just schedule single hour-long lessons at your convenience. I’m always glad to see you!
