If you sign up for a workshop with her, she will start by identifying your goal, your current position, and steps tobe taken towards your goal.

Do you want to sing to perform, or just for your own pleasure? Do you want to improve technique for effect or for increasing comfort? Control nervousness? Do you want to work on your interpretation, getting the «message» across and connecting to the audience? Improve American-English pronunciation? Improve intonation when singing harmony vocals? Train the ear, so that you can figure out harmony vocals faster or more effectively? Train microphone technique, singing while standing/sitting/moving around the stage, or singing while playing an instrument? Or»just» find your own voice instead of imitating others? Spoiler: do not expect to magically master all these things after only one week. Your journey will have only just begun. But we will send you off with a roadmap and a full tank of gas!
