What you can expert to learn

The mainstay of every lesson with me is mutual respect. I take great pleasure in getting to know each of my students and am extremely conscious of building trust and a safe space to explore potential. Encouragement, laughter and joy are an integral part of every lesson. I am particularly interested in the extent to which our emotions influence the shape of our bodies and the sounds that we make. 


My pedagogical influences include the work of Frederick Husler, Yvonne Rod-Marling, Möche Feldenkrais and Frederick Alexander. I am also extremely conscientious that I continue with my own personal, vocal  and physical development.
