OK. There's the short story, and the longer story. I'll give you both, and you can pick the one you'd like to read…
Short Story: I'm beginning to give voice lessons. If you or your child want to learn how to sing better, control your breath, control your voice, push through nerves, connect with an audience, or just develop your own sound, message me. I can help.
Longer story: I grew up singing in the church. My mom put my sister and i through classical piano lessons for 10 years.
Singing, playing and writing my own music was my vehicle into coffee houses and bars in Detroit. Eventually, i moved to Minnesota, and was signed to a major label (EMI). I put out a record of my own songs, toured the world, opened for greats like BB King, Cyndi Lauper and Johnny Lang.
I put out another record on an indie label (Telarc), toured more, performed on National TV, had a song on Grey's Anatomy. Kelly Clarkson recorded one of my songs (If No One Will Listen).
When i was growing up, i didn't have a teacher to show me how to do things and have fun in the process. It was all about being technical. I've learned a lot on my own, as well as from the incredible people i've met along the way, and I want to pass it on.
If you or your child want to develop or enhance your own sound, while learning good habits like how to protect and strengthen your voice, i can help. I've road-tested what to do, as well as what NOT to do.
