I offer conducting, musical direction and accompanying to a wide range of ensembles and abilities.
My focus is on solid, classically informed vocal technique and precision to ensure that the singers sing to the best of their ability, while pushing them to develop their own musical understanding and awareness of the pieces themselves. We look at elements such as singing posture while moving, the importance of vocal maintenance through the show’s run and ensuring a unified ensemble sound for all the singers. Though there are some ensembles where I work specifically with their soloists, I strongly value working with the chorus to ensure the entire company can produce the best and most secure sound possible for its members.
I offer to help setup, support and lead workplace choirs.
