“I strive to discover each student’s unique voice. In order to accomplish this, I begin by ensuring the whole voice is functioning well; acquiring the stability and coordination to accomplish a free and authentic delivery.”
– Norma Churchill
In the years my son has studied voice lessons with Norma, I have been witness to her dedication and vast knowledge. She teaches her students not just how to sing, but the proper way to sing. She is always committed to taking her students to the next level while building their confidence. Much of my son’s confidence in social situations can be directly attributed to the positive feedback he receives in his singing lessons. Since he has such high regard for Norma’s honest opinion, her encouragement has been wonderful.Recent Parent
