Singers, speakers, and fellow voice teachers from all different backgrounds seek out Liz’s teaching for her ability to illuminate traditional vocal pedagogy with evidence-based discoveries and methods in a creative and playful environment.

In 2014, Liz began working with transgender/non-binary individuals, helping clients to develop voice and communication patterns that align with and affirm their identity. She also works with trans/non-binary singers, supporting a sustainable, healthy singing voice technique during medical transition (or not) and beyond.

Liz teaches fellow voice teachers who are eager to support their transgender and non-binary students through workshops, public speaking, training sessions, and online courses. Liz is the author of One Weird Trick: A User’s Guide to Transgender Voice and co-author of The Singing Teacher’s Guide to Transgender Voices.
