A top tier institution with a wonderful music department and friendly faculty.
Senior Teaching Artist in Voice (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – November 12, 2013
I spend my day teaching back-to-back voice lessons to undergraduate music majors, non-major participants, and musical theatre majors. I get to hang out with young and vibrant college students who love to sing and perform. I have a beautiful office with a view of campus, a grand piano, and all the creature comforts I could desire. I assist these students in identifying and correcting their vocal faults and help them hone their own diagnostic, as well as performance skills. I thoroughly love my fellow voice faculty. We are a collegial bunch with an open door policy. The hardest part of my job is choosing appropriate repertoire for nearly fifty students each semester, but the payoff is worth it when I see the students make a discovery about themselves as actors or their own instrument.
Beautiful place to work, freedom in scheduling my work day.
