Avery on teaching Voice: " I believe in nurturing the voice and meeting it wherever it is on any given day, at whatever level of ability or functionality. The only way to grow is to give yourself the space to explore it without self imposed expectations. A solid foundation of classical technique can strengthen any style and give the singer the skill and confidence to perform under a variety of circumstances."
