Sing with me

Kristen draws on her decades of experience as a professional singer, songwriter, arranger and choir director to guide students to find their natural voice and develop skills in singing, harmonizing and general music. Her intention is to plant seeds of awareness and curiosity about singing. To tune our bodies, minds and ears for breath and spirit to be present and flowing. Kristen encourages the discovery of authentic expression in each student with an infectious enthusiasm.

At our first lesson, we will discuss your goals - musical, vocal and professional, if applicable - and the styles of music that you sing and want to sing. I ask that you bring 2-3 songs that you have worked on or are presently working on and provide me with lyrics and chords (or sheet music). I often find what I’m looking for at Music Notes or Ultimate Guitar. Please contact me by email if you need help finding sheet music or chords.

We will talk about the basics of vocal production and I will lead you through a vocal warm-up designed to explore your voice and maximize ease and enjoyment for singing all styles.
