I continually strive to keep up with current stuff about singing and am a member of several local and international forums, support groups and networks for singing teachers and regularly listen to Podcasts.

Dorothy is a fabulous teacher. She has brought the joy of singing back and I am so very grateful. She is a gifted teacher who is able to match her style to any singer with outstanding results... Danielle S - Psychologist
