Credentials/BackgroundShea helps students to find their optimal sound via placement and experimental sound production. By applying the optimal sound to any song, riff, or solo - a singer can then begin to realize her own particular identity. Shea has studied with Jane Peterson of the Boston Metropolitan Opera, G.G. Prosper in Los Angeles, and Raz Kennedy (Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra) in San Francisco. She currently works with students in the Sonoma County area in California.
