"There is no greater joy in teaching than seeing your student excel because you were able to provide them with the tools, skills, and motivation to succeed!"


“Emily’s in-depth knowledge and passion for the subject are contagious and inspiring. How she has designed the course allows for a didactic and experiential approach to learning that benefits each student in the short and long term. I found the course especially helpful in introducing and reinforcing contemporary voice principles for those with more experience teaching and singing in the classical arena. She has done a phenomenal job combining principles of contemporary voice resonant qualities like mix, belt, and light classical; and commercial music vocal styles into concise, approachable, and easy-to-understand segments. The course was worth the investment for my professional development. I highly recommend Emily’s Contemporary Voice Teacher Training Course!”

- Elda Peralta, Adjunct Professor of Voice at Point Loma Nazarene University San Diego, CA

“I loved taking Emily’s Contemporary Voice course for classical singers and teachers. Her deep understanding of vocal anatomy, physiology, and function impressed me. Although I was skeptical about the healthfulness of contemporary techniques, Emily’s knowledge in these areas soon put me at ease. I realized she had discovered the keys to singing well and healthfully in any style, and the knowledge I gained was a real benefit to my students and me. I recommend her course to anyone who ever teaches voice students studying contemporary music. You will not be disappointed!” 

- Kelsey Rogers, Instructor of Voice, Dickinson State University, ND

"My work with Emily gave me the clearest strategies for teaching Contemporary Styles! I loved the resources, activities, singing, song assignments, listening, assessing, MT history, and CM styles info. Singing during class was so beneficial, and it was also fun to hear the other teachers' progress. I really loved it!"

- Tracey Engleman, Associate Professor of Voice, St. Olaf College, MN

"Emily is truly incredible. She's very flexible and easy to work with. I gained more confidence in assessing and addressing vocal problems in others and myself. I learned much about how the voice works and how to sing and teach in contemporary styles. I would recommend this course to anyone!"

 - Tasha Pope, Private Voice Instructor

"I learned so much about the voice in such a short time. I loved learning about the physical mechanics and anatomy involved with singing. When I listen to other singers, I can tell which vocal styles they employ as they sing. Also, this has made it easier for me to duplicate the songs I love to sing with greater accuracy. I feel that my vocal abilities have improved 100%. This class is worth every penny!"

- Diana Mildenstein,  Private Voice Instructor

"Emily was able to answer all my questions with clarity and with research to back it up. She is so knowledgeable. I learned so much and highly recommend this course to aspiring teachers!"

- Venna Barrowes, Private Voice Instructor
