Singing vibrates us body and soul,
and brings us together as community.
Elise has earned a reputation as a masterful educator, working with professionals and beginners alike. Elise takes singers on a journey to expand confidence and consciousness. Playing with melody, rhythm, language, harmony, vocal production, and soul connection, students discover, explore, and expand their vocal range and abilities in a supportive and joyous atmosphere.
Around the U.S., Elise takes her Impromptu Glorious Chorus™ to studios like San Francisco’s Sawtooth, Seattle’s Space Needle, Boston’s Third Life, and Asheville’s Jubilee, as well as conducting workshops for organizations like Alternate ROOTS, the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching, and a wide variety of choirs, choruses, and ensembles.
Internationally, Elise uses her fluency in multiple languages to lead workshops in Italy, France, Switzerland, Latin America and Africa.
