Passionate about teaching, she believes that every voice is unique and enjoys tailoring her lessons to the individual. Her goal is to create a nurturing studio environment, while giving students the tools required to meet the growing demands of a career in musical theatre. Above all, when good technique is in place, Mrs. Aubrey believes finding the story within the song and having a strong personal connection to the lyric ultimately frees the voice to go where it needs to go.
