We're so grateful to the growing community of vocal experts, performers, teachers and voice enthusiasts who have contributed to our Indiegogo campaign, helping us make our documentary film about the unsung power and beauty of the human voice. You're truly making it possible to finish our film. Meet today's "Voice Messenger" of the day!

WHO IS YOUR PERSONAL VOCAL MENTOR OR INSPIRATION?
Regina Spektor was a huge influence on me as a teen- I loved the way she played with words and sounds, using her voice as an instrument. As a teacher, my students continuously inspire me. It takes guts to share your voice with people- it's not about being perfect all the time, it's about connecting with others.
WHAT'S ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU'D GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO DO WHAT YOU DO AND IS JUST GETTING STARTED?
I love the quote by Earl Nightingale — 'Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway."
TELL US WHY YOU CONTRIBUTED TO THE VOICE MESSAGES INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN.
I am a massive vocal geek so supporting the documentary was an exciting prospect- the more information we discover and share, the better off we all are! I am thankful to all those who have already broken ground and shared their discoveries with us..
TELL US MORE ABOUT YOU AND/OR YOUR ORGANIZATION.
I passionately believe that music belongs to everyone- we all have a voice, and like any instrument, you can learn to play it! Singing is a powerful and beautiful means of expression, and one available to us all. This belief informs every aspect of my teaching- whatever your age and ability, you can improve your voice, and most importantly- you can enjoy it!!
