New York Vocal Coaching Course

Hey Friends and Family!

As many of you know, I currently teach about 30 voice and piano students in Cincinnati and have been doing so since I graduated in 2013. I didn't think I would like it so much, but I really have enjoyed teaching--especially to my voice students! However, the more students I obtain, the more I realize how much I still have to learn about the voice and effective vocal pedagogy. While experimenting with my students on my own has been the best thing I could have done for myself, I am eager to take the next step in furthering my vocal and pedagogical education and I've finally found a program that seems like the perfect fit for me! 

This program is a 10 week, 40 hour vocal teaching certification course hosted by the New York Vocal Coaching Studio in New York with the founder of the company, Justin Stoney. Though most of the course will be taught via Skype, I will also be going to New York to meet with the staff personally, at times that are convenient to my own personal schedule.

Since this is structured similarly to a college course, there is a hefty amount of tuition attached: $4,400. So to help ease the debt burden a bit, I am doing a Go Fund Me campaign. This is where the fun part comes in! XD

No donation is too small to help BUT if you are feeling extra generous I have a little something I will be doing for you in return. Here's the deal:

If you donate $10 to my campaign, I will post a 30 second video to your facebook wall/social media account of me singing a well known song with your name in it JUST FOR YOU!!

If you donate $25 to my campaign, I will post a link to me singing a COVER SONG of your choice!

If you donate $75 to my campaign, I will arrange a CHORAL A CAPELLA PIECE for your school or community choir!

If you donate $100, I will make a MUSIC VIDEO to the cover song of your choice and post it to your social media/facebook page!!

I am so beyond excited to learn more about my craft and become a better vocal coach, singer and musician! And I look forward to singing for you! :)

Love and Music,
