Good morning.

It's a sunny and very cold day in Lakeville, Minnesota. I'm lucky that today is my day off, so I can cozy in and admire the sunshine in our warm home. 

If you have read my previous blog posts, you know that I am a classically trained singer who now sings an...

When I first started online lessons with my current voice teacher Linda Brice I was skeptical. My computer doesn't have a great microphone so I was concerned that she wouldn't be able to hear me accurately and see me clearly. Despite my hesitation, I decided to try it...

Born in Colorado, raised in Minnesota, educated in Wisconsin and Louisville...and then transplanted to Boston. In each place I've lived, I've learned a lot. Boston has been a huge growth spurt for me. I started living my values, and trusting my inner voice. A little ov...

My greatest fear is failing. In high school, I was afraid of failing classes, messing up in a school play, being left out...fear of not getting into college, or the right  college. Fear of disappointing my loved ones, fear of disappointing myself. This fear of failure...

If you have been confused about the spelling of my name, you are not alone!

"It's M.A.I.R.E....I.R. not R.I...yes, I know it is spelled almost like Marie...but no it's not because the "i" comes before the "r"...it's a Scottish spelling..." 

That is a conversation I...

As many of you know, I have a BM and an MM in classical singing. My senior year of high school, I was given the advice that if I really learned how to sing classically, that I could eventually sing anything that I want. This may not prove true for everyone but it certa...

Today I found myself with an afternoon for creative space. What a gift. I began by sitting still, then by pulling cards. I found myself a few minutes later drumming. After I felt my drumming had calmed my mind, I found my way to the piano. Before I knew it I was singin...
