Vocal Roots is a vocal health coaching service that uses a multidisciplinary approach to equip you with the tools you need to sustain a healthy connection to your voice.


The Mission

The Vocal Roots mission is to provide you with educational resources to deepen your understanding of the voice for sustainable, everyday use.

My courses not only offer foundational, scientific knowledge of vocal function, but they also address holistic topics using straightforward exercises to fit into your busy schedule.

Voice and speech are our primary means of communication, and while its inner workings can seem complex, I am here to help demystify the process with you.
