I received my DMA from Louisiana State University, MM from the Manhattan School of Music, and BM from the University of South Alabama. I have worked with a few transgender singers and really approach teaching from an authentic and options based approach. I truly believe that good teaching and singing can be held up to a universal standard and that every voice has the potential to achieve their tonal goals! I am endeavoring to help other faculty members see teaching transgender students with less of a stigma and apprehension by helping codify a way to approach every voice with a similar structure so that we can normalize any type of production. I love voice science and really approach teaching all styles with a functional background and unity.
