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!
