I will help you to cultivate your voice, become fully aware of your voice abilities, teach you what to do when you want to sing a piece of music which your voice is objectively not capable of, how to do approach a song in your own way. I want to help you to gain confidence with your voice and finally most crucial thing - how to put real meaning into the song filling it with feeling which is a real point of All That Jazz!
