I met many voice teachers in my life and I can say with certainty that Elizabeth Winstead was the most influential on me. With her I discovered not only my voice but also my artistry and acting skills. I had teachers with prominent names in classical singing but no one was as dedicated, nurturing or as helpful for me as was Elizabeth. She helped me open doors in my singing career. In less than a year of studying with her I participated at the NATS competition in North Carolina, winning third place. Less than two years after that I gave my first solo concert and won a full scholarship to study and earn a masters in music and vocal performance at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am certain that any future success of mine is due to her setting me on the right path, as I am sure she has done for many other young singers.
