You're considering taking voice lessons. You must have several questions..
...so please ask me and I will do my best to answer them. My twin goals are to help you improve and to provide you with a skill set that will enable you to continue to learn on your own. I am also obligated to be as honest and transparent as possible. The teacher-student relationship is built upon trust, and trust demands honesty and caring. If any potential teacher seems evasive, then he is not the person to whom you want to entrust your delicate, unique, and non-replaceable voice. ..CLICK ON PICTURE TO CONTINUE

You know how to sing. I know how to teach your voice.
Everyone knows how to sing, but not everyone knows how to use her voice properly.
Ever since I was a young girl, singing has been such a joy. Growing up in a musical household, there was singing everywhere and all the time. Soon, though, I was made aware it wasn’t enough that I just sang, but that I also needed to be careful how I used my voice.
The voice is very important: We utter our first sounds when we are born, and we continue until we leave this world. I have studied voice and opera performance in college and in graduate school, I became an opera singer, and for twenty-three years I have been teaching people how to use their voices.
I also have experience teaching as a member of the voice faculties of two of the best music programs while I was living in Thailand (Silpakorn and Mahidol Universities), as well as teaching at my private studio. Many of my students have become successful in their careers, both in classical and in today’s music. Some now run their own teaching studios and have teaching posts at music schools. A few have even gone on to become celebrities!
As a performer, I have been active a little more than thirty years, now. I continue to perform, and my voice is still fresh and young-sounding.
What I have learned from my journey is that there will always be good days and bad days for the singing voice. I’ve had my share of the ups and downs of expressing myself through my voice. On some days, my body works well and the voice is glorious and it puts me on top of the world; on others, my body may feel slow and I have to use a different approach. There have been many trials and errors in my voice journey, but I always remember what another performer (who is also a colleague) once said to me: “It’s not what you do on the good days, but it’s how you handle the bad days that counts.”
You can sing. Anyone can sing; but whether anyone sings so well that she rises above everyone else -or has a longer singing life- depends upon the singer’s knowledge, understanding, and the ability to apply that knowledge and understanding to her own voice.
The voice needs to be taught so that it can function at its optimal efficiency, and I can teach you.
Before you sign up and prepay for lessons, you must first make an appointment to see me. I will conduct a short interview, then I will listen and watch you sing.
Voice study is a serious and a long endeavor, requiring commitment from both teacher and student. The teacher-student relationship plays a big part in determining if one is ready, and how much one can learn.
This interview will have nothing to do with how good you sound, how well you sing, or even how you look: it’s more about how well I believe you are a fit with my teaching methods.
I will give you my honest opinion and let you know whether you are the right candidate for my studio. It’s better from the outset that we don’t waste time, energy, and money investing in something –in this case, voice lessons- from which I know you won’t benefit. I will not take your money nor spend my time teaching something I know you won’t grasp.
I do not charge a fee for the interview; but, if I do accept you into the studio, and you agree to its terms and conditions, at the end you can sign up, make a full payment, and arrange for dates and times for your lessons for the whole course.
Please do not make an appointment for an interview until you are ready to make the payment for the course. Once the business of joining is completed, you and I can begin with the business of voice study.
Please use this contact form to send me your name and email address. In the message box please leave your phone number, as well as a few choices of dates and times within seven days from today when you are available to come see me. Also, please tell me a little bit about yourself. Please DO NOT ask for "more details." Information about my teaching, tuition fees, and the studio are already provided on this Website. After I review your contact form, you will receive my response. My usual means of communication are via text messages, phone calls and emails.
My e-mail address:
Once we have communicated
...and agreed upon a date and time for your interview-the appointment takes about 20 - 30 minutes, and you should be prepared to sing for me- if you are unable to keep the appointment for any reason please let me know as soon as possible- either via email, phone, or text- but not later than twelve hours prior to the time of our appointment. This is simple common courtesy, and it allows me the opportunity to reschedule and assign the time to someone else who wants to be here. My time is valuable too, and quite frankly I don't have any to spend on those who, in canceling at the last minute (or not canceling at all, but simply failing to appear), demonstrate such a lack of desire and respect.
