I help people of all ages develop a healthy – and playful – relationship with their singing and speaking voice.
My students learn to sing and speak with a natural authenticity – a solid tone, an easy breath and a simple, open-hearted presence.
My teaching philosophy: if it’s not play, it’s not working.
I hired Michele to help me find my true voice, not simply a mimicry of someone else. At the time I first started working with Michele I simply wanted to be able to sing better than I did; I felt I wasn’t a singer and was, in essence, faking it because I didn’t have the richness or subtlety I heard in other singers’ voices. I learned not only the technical aspects of what makes my voice sound richer and fuller but also how to interpret a song and present it with my own style. I became far more appreciative of what I could do with my voice and less critical of what I did not have as a “star” vocalist. Michele’s ability to find creative approaches to studying music, finding the inherent structure in music and building a cohesive approach to a song have proven invaluable. Think you can’t sing? Go see Michele. Think you can sing? Same recommendation. The experience is tremendously rewarding.
No matter your age, your voice is serious business. It’s been with you since birth. It’s as unique as your palm print.
My job as a voice teacher is to help you use your body well, so you can make the best sound you can, in the healthiest way possible.
“Best” doesn’t mean “good enough for [glitzy something or other].”
“Best” doesn’t mean better than anyone else.
“Best” means the freest, most efficient and most complete sound your body can make, over the widest possible range, with the greatest ease. It’s a sound you might not have heard yet.
“Best” means the best you.
