I have been a professional musician for over 30 years but started out as an instrumentalist. I started singing professionally in the early 2000's however in 2016 I was diagnosed with laryngeal nerve damage which meant my voice was severely impaired. Determined not to give in I sought answers and this thrust me in to the wonderful world of voice science and vocal coaching.
Not only did I get my voice back but it's better today than ever and my passion is now helping others with their voices.
I believe that if I can get my voice working again, I can help you with yours.
