"Ruth's approach as a teacher is wonderfully creative and engaging. She knows the voice so well, and she approaches each lesson with a fresh set of ears and techniques and suggestions. I am always encouraged by the variety of approaches, and I also know that she will give me an honest appraisal at every stage of working on repertoire. I have been a choral singer for many years, but Ruth has been really helping me discover more of my voice, both as a soloist and a choral singer. I am now a paid singer in the SF Symphony Chorus, and I definitely believe that my lessons with Ruth have been a big part of my recent growth as a singer and musician."
