Marshall Voice Studio
Welcome to the Marshall Voice Studio! I look forward to working with you to explore and develop your vocal technique within repertoire that enriches, challenges, and inspires you on your own individual path of singing!
Vocal studies is a discipline engaging both sides of the brain, several different parts of the body, and hundreds of muscles; our minds, bodies, and heart, all together at the same time. We will explore each of these concepts in our journey together as we work the technical and dramatic sides of vocal musicianship.
• Vocal technique
• Range development
• General musicianship--music reading, sight-singing, ear training
• Collaborative skills--working with accompanying instrumentalists
• Diction for the stage
• Dramatic coaching
• Repertoire selection and programming

"My wife and I want to say thank you for all that you have done with and for our daughter these two years, especially for her audition preparation. You have given her a wonderful, healthy start. She is singing so beautifully. Thank you!" ~ Parent of high school student (went on to Performance degree at Plymouth State University)
"I would not be the singer or musician I am today with your help. I will carry everything I have learned from you with me for the rest of my life. And that’s a lot of stuff, so it’s a good thing I took plenty of notes!" ~Music Education student, Ithaca College
"You are an incredible professor. I am so grateful to you for the dedication you've shown me...you help me feel so capable, and you teach me so well! I couldn't imagine going through this semester and my first ever voice recital without you!" ~Vocal Performance & Music Education student, Ithaca College
