I am a voice teacher and NCVS certified vocologist specializing in contemporary voice technique. I adjudicate regularly for classical, choral, pop and music theatre categories. from coast to coast. I am vice-president of the Ontario chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and adore teaching CCM voice in the Community Music program at Wilfrid Laurier University as well as my private studio in Waterloo, Ontario
I am currently training as a Designated Linklater Voice teacher.
My voice students have gone on to perform throughout Canada, on North American tours and in Broadway shows. As conductor of the Grand Philharmonic Youth Choir for eight years, I led the choir to win competitions nationally and internationally, and to perform with grammy-winning recording artists and rock groups.
Due to my passionate advocating for the education and inspiration of young artists, I developed the concept for the Music Theatre Academy at Laurier, an intensive three-week performance program for pre-professional emerging artists, where I teaches contemporary voice technique to classical singers, and sit as the Artistic Director. I am also the Founder and Artistic Director of The Singer's Theatre, a summer music theatre training program that attracts singers from across North America since 2002, and have served as vocal director for various cruise lines.
Faculty Advisor: WLU Snats (Student Chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing).
Teaching voice at Laurier is a joy. As the studio instructor for CCM (Contemporary Commercial Music), I get the opportunity to explore the many different ways one can be expressive using the human instrument, through all kinds of musical styles. With a healthy, free instrument, anything can be possible!
