Dear Michele,
Thank you so much for being my voice teacher this year! Words can’t really express my gratitude for everything you’ve taught me. Thank you for helping me to fulfill one of my biggest life goals- to sing well and healthily. I have learned and experienced so much more that I could hope for, and I feel that I’ve really grown as a musician and person thanks to your guidance and wisdom.

Thank you for your time and energy and patience. Thank you for explaining how warm ups work and why, for taking time to help me warm up before performances, for introducing me to wonderful vocal repertoire. Thank you for caring and for being such an excellent teacher – I am so blessed to have been your student!
