Every voice can be beautiful. Discover that you are designed like a hi-fidelity speaker, with an ability to produce well-tuned and resonant sound, without force. 

For one-on-one coaching, I offer hour and half-hour sessions online utilizing Zoom, a wonderful video conferencing service that allows us to record each session. 4 & 8 Session series packages are available.

If you are on the path to healing from a diagnosis of vocal nodules, pre-nodule conditions, polyps or laryngeal reflux, or spasmodic dysphonia, know that you are not alone on your vocal journey. Bel canto can assist you to heal your voice.
