About you

Who I teach

I specialize in training voices across the transgender spectrum: transfeminine, non-binary, transmasculine, genderfluid, and other gender identities and presentations. I have particular skill in training transmasculine singers during the first year of testosterone, rehabilitating the falsetto/head voice, training transfeminine singers to access their alto/soprano voices, and training aging transgender voices.

In addition to working with a range of voice types, I also work with a wide range of body types and physical/hormonal characteristics. These include:

  • Any interaction with hormone or blockers
    • Not on or interested in hormones or blockers
    • Not currently on hormones or blockers, but interested in starting them
    • On hormones for any period of time, from just started to many years
    • On hormones for a period of time and then stopped
  • Those who have, have not, are interested in, or do not want any type of surgery
  • Those who want to access a lower range
  • Those who want to access a higher range
  • Any adult
    • Young adult students at the intersection of starting their professional careers and their transitions
    • Aging and/or Elderly students
    • Students with physical disabilities
    • Neurodiverse students (particularly those with ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and autism)
    • I am open to working with younger students who are interested in serious voice performance
  • Singers with voice damage
    • I work closely with medical professionals, and can refer you to trans-competent providers
    • I can provide support during rehab in collaboration with your care team
  • People with other characteristics that may impact learning such as blindness, mobility issues, autoimmune disorders, diverse learning needs, and more

Genres and Backgrounds

My expertise lies with opera, musical theatre, choral singing, cabaret, and jazz, but I also have experience training students who sing pop, rock, spirituals, gospel, folk, and more.

I teach students with a variety of musical backgrounds and skill levels:

  • Current or aspiring professional and high-level amateur singers
  • Active amateur singers who perform as part of a chorale or in occasional shows
  • Those returning to singing after an absence that may or may not be related to transitioning
  • People who want to explore their voice, especially in the context of social and physical transition
  • See the Lessons page for more specifics about the types of lessons I offer.
