My Story

9 years ago, I moved to Nashville in pursuit of a music career. One of the first things I did was seek out the best vocal coach I could find. That turned out to be Brett Manning. Through my time with him, I transformed from a teenage kid with an average voice and average range into a professional. The lessons I learned from Brett were invaluable, and have led me to where I am today. I'd probably be working at McDonald's right now or something… Okay maybe not but WHO KNOWS!

I Caught The Voice Bug

Fast forward about 6 years, I’m in Anthem Lights, which has been a tremendous blessing for me. Talk about a total transformation! Now I want to have the same impact on others that Brett had on me.  Teaching voice was always a dream in the back of my mind.  I began to offer lessons, and after seeing a few lightbulbs click for my students - I WAS HOOKED! That’s when I started Brett’s Master Classes to become a licensed vocal coach. After countless hours, I am a few short months away from accomplishing that goal!

When I'm not in the studio, making videos or singing on stage, my next favorite thing is offering lessons to my students. No matter where Anthem Lights takes me, vocal coaching is something I plan to do for a very, very long time. It's exactly where I want to be.
