Singing voice education

with Dr. Charlene Santoni

Meet Charlene

Dr. Charlene Santoni, PhD

My name is Charlene Santoni and ​I have over 15 years of experience in voice performance and pedagogy. I hold an interdisciplinary PhD in Music and Health Science, and my doctoral research brought together the fields of speech science and singing voice pedagogy. As a result, I have a unique understanding of the voice from the perspective of a performer, a teacher, a clinician, and a researcher. I love music, I love the voice, and I love my work!

I am also a kind person, and I pride myself on providing voice education that not only improves voices, but that fosters personal growth with compassion, understanding, and sensitivity.
