“I’m currently in Hadestown on Broadway and can’t tell you how much I needed to read your piece on vocal health. It was so empathetic and kind and wise and wow… normally you get either or. I read it and immediately felt less pressure to be ‘perfect’. So thank you. THANK YOU for putting together your professional experience to write such a compelling and compassionate post. I can’t express in words how truly thankful I am for finding it. I’m going to print it out and put it on my dressing room mirror!”

–Eva Noblezada, GRAMMY Award-Winner (Best Musical Theater Album) and two-time TONY Nominee (Miss Saigon, Hadestown)

Giving Up “The Gift”

Every morning, a quote of inspiration arrives in my inbox. A few weeks ago, one said: “Share The Gift.” The encouragement to share yourself is lovely.  And I find it to be more powerful when said that way… share yourself, not your gifts. Why? In my practice, I work...
