My responsibility as a Singing Teacher is to provide a safe environment where the students may explore and experiment with the full range, dynamic and color palette of their own unique singing sound. 

Most importantly, is to create avenues where the voice experiences complete freedom in order to communicate through the medium of music. 

Together, we (teacher/student) gently and persistently shed any residue of self-preconceived notion or unconscious "armoring", It is particularly encouraged, through all styles of music to embrace our weaknesses so that they may become strengths in creating life-long habits that may sustain a strenuous career.
