I live in Taylors with my aussiedoodle Sadie — and enjoy knitting and working in my garden.
Favorite Course to Teach
Diction I and II have become my favorite courses to teach. IPA is “decoder-ring” for determining proper foreign pronunciation. Providing a tool to help voice student connect and sing in the languages for art song and opera selections is rewarding.
