Patricia teaches students to develop their voices and improve their knowledge and performance practice through healthy voice behaviors. Students develop life-long habits and appreciation of music as contributing members of society. While some may become professional musicians, others may cherish singing as the best part of their week, away from their occupation. Helping singers achieve their best potential is the goal. This is achieved through: artistic excellence, communication and collaboration, creativity, imagination, healthy habits, expression, discipline, focus, problem-solving, goal setting, attention to detail, historical context, positive attitude, music literacy, self-esteem, organizational skills and professionalism.
