The Studio's Approach

I believe the building blocks to a healthy, solid & dependable instrument combine physical & mental well-being with balanced nutrition.

All classes regardless of age or experience level will include physical alignment and relaxation techniques as well as breathing and vocal exercises that will strengthen the body & voice while releasing tension, giving the student a sense of “being free” that will ultimately increase their potential, leaving them ready to “perform” at their personal best by the end of each class!
