About My Studio
Well, first off, it’s not about me, it’s about you!
What are your goals? What is holding you back? How can I help?
From the amateur singer to the budding professional, I want to help you on your journey to becoming the best singer and performer you can be! If your goals include auditioning, learning to read music, preparing for college auditions, building a demo reel, booking professional work for Film & TV, or even just not scaring your family when you belt “Let It Go” in the car, you name it, let’s get you there!
I believe a balanced and coordinated voice can conquer a wide range of musical styles. As someone who has gained a reputation for versatility, I believe in equipping students with the same tools and flexibility that will allow them limitless opportunities in their professional endeavors.
I believe that each student is unique and what might work for one may not work for another. Lessons are opportunities for guided exploration of techniques, exercises, and pedagogical philosophies with plenty of room for feedback from the student. Only you have your unique voice, and my job is to help guide you towards a greater understanding and awareness of your individual instrument, one that is authentic, tension-free, coordinated, and balanced. Each lesson you will be offered tools to put inside your tool kit to then take home, practice, and apply.
As a student of Dr. Florence Birdwell, who also taught many Broadway stars like Tony-award winners Kristin Chenoweth and Kelli O’Hara, I learned that one thing we have as singers over instrumentalists is that we get the gift of text, and it is our job as singers to use the words and emotions to tell the story. Dr. Birdwell wasn’t just my singing teacher, she was my everything teacher, and she taught me the importance of being your most authentic self, both in life and in performing. Singing and living with authenticity is a lesson I urge my students to take with them well beyond the voice studio.
Currently, Meredith serves on the voice faculty at both the University of Southern California and Pepperdine University and works extensively as a vocal coach for Harvard-Westlake school. She has a thriving private voice studio often connecting students with professional opportunities for Film & TV projects due to her ongoing work as a SAG session singer, vocal contractor, and on-set vocal coach. She is an active member of the National Association for Teachers of Singing (NATS) with students winning awards at both the local and regional divisions. Meredith is in demand as an adjudicator and clinician around the country and was chosen as one of only 12 voice teachers in North America to participate in the prestigious NATS Intern Program in 2021.
