Norma Mendoza is simply THE BEST vocal instructor, period. I came to Norma almost a year ago seeking help for a rare voice problem I have. Having seen several speech pathologists & therapists prior, I was skeptical as to what to expect. Norma is such a kind spirit. I immediately felt at ease in her presence and surprised myself when I allowed myself to sing in front of her (something I was terrified to do). Her methods are both fun and very effective. Her wisdom, talent and energy are infectious! She truly understands voice from a physical, emotional and mental aspect and will teach you how to use it properly. I can honestly say I leave every session feeling happy, more confident in my voice and grateful to have had the experience. And though I have a long way to go, I could not be happier with the progress I've made and I feel better about my voice than I have in almost a decade. Enough could not be said about how amazing this woman is. I think of her as not only my vocal coach, but also a friend and mentor. Thank you for all that you do!
