Services & Fees

I provide individual and group coaching in the studio, on-line transmission of recorded spoken song texts, IPA transcriptions, and referrals to additional diction resources and coaches for more intensive sessions.

In the studio, we can work on the preparation of up-coming performances such as recitals, auditions and exams. Or we can plan a series of lessons, with taped practice, to cover the essentials of a given language: its sounds, spellings, rhythm, and special features.

An extensive collection of recordings as listening resources is also available.

  • You are preparing to do a singing workshop with a top coach.
  • You want the most up-to-date diction information available to performers.
  • You want to understand how the song text’s sounds and rhythms serve the meaning and the music.
