Carlson Studios

To open a full-time studio dedicated to the student has been on my bucket list for a long time! I am so happy to be doing what I love and sharing what I have learned.

The picture to the left is from the air flying over Lake Michigan. I am from Michigan and it will always be in my heart! Now, I live in St. Louis. There is a little area called Town and Country where I am “close to town” and I can get anywhere in a matter of minutes. The “country” part is where I see deer, geese and BIRDS!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to check out my website. I will add articles here and there as I find interesting about the voice and music in general.

I provide a warm, open and peaceful space for you to create YOUR music.



I give workshops to universities and high schools for the solo voice and small choral ensembles. I try to incorporate humor when possible to free up the voice for music to really happen.



I am hired for singing gigs around the city and I love performing with others to create beautiful music! Classical, musical theater, jazz, etc. I don’t rap…although, I am not opposed to OTHERS doing it.
