In addition to choral teaching and conducting, I also have a passion for vocal health in the classroom, both for my singers as well as for myself as a teacher. After three years of teaching middle school, I found myself with a vocal cyst, unable to sing let alone model for my students. This led to a journey through surgery and voice/singing therapy that changed my entire outlook on vocal health as a classroom educator. Below is a link to my Google slideshow and speaking voice warm-up sheet, most recently presented at the Florida FMEA Conference 2020, as well as the Michigan Music Conference 2019.
