Student Resources

Welcome to my favorite page of my website, where you get to learn a little bit more about what makes me tick as a human being, get a peek at my insatiable curiosity, access resources that have profoundly affected me as a human being, as well as access resources that I have created and or curated on this page in order to aid my students in their learning process.

For those who live in Eugene, OR: The University of Oregon is an incredible resource and has an immense music collection on the top floor of the knight library. Community members can get a library card for a very reasonable yearly fee, and they have scanners available. https://library.uoregon.edu/

A note about repertoire and sexism/racism:

Take a look at your repertoire list. If you have only ever sung or programmed music by European composers, or only music written by men, a great resource to create more diversity in your musical life going forward is the Institute for Composer Diversityhttps://www.composerdiversity.com/

The Art of Learning to Sing on Youtube

 

It's a tricky game, because anyone can put up a Youtube video, regardless of their expertise. However, there are some gems in the rough, and this channel is one that I condone - the videos are dorky and informative, a perfect blend! I find his teaching is pedagogically sound and factually based, and it's important to note that it's geared more for a pop audience, but there are useful tips for all genres of singing.  However if you ever experience pain or discomfort while practicing on your own, make sure you contact a voice teacher in your area who can help diagnose what's going on and design exercises to help you find more freedom and ease in your singing.
