Credentials/Background:
I'm now coaching via Skype for all levels. I've sung jazz since I was 18 (at this writing nearly 60 years) and professionally since 1966, as well as learning many ways to holistically clear issues we have with creativity and performing. Working to free your "inner artist," I specialize in jazz-vocal coaching and life coaching — and the first sesion is always free. My Skype handle is ellifordyce, so please add me as a contact and email (ellifordyce@msn.com) to set up a time. I look forward to working with you. Best, Elli http://www.ellifordyce.net
