Lyndsi Maus
Vocal Coach - Lieder

Teaching Philosophy
My coaching aims to create a synthesis of the most important elements in creating a captivating performance: idiomatic language delivery, stylistically appropriate musicality, and compelling storytelling. I strive to meet each singer where they are and facilitate the fusion of these elements to the best of their ability.
