Michelle Markwart Deveaux hates writing her bio, but she likes telling her story:
I loves the singing, and the teaching, and the turning singers and teachers into beasty-bosses. I built faithculturekiss studio for voice & acting, and The SpeakEasy Cooperative, because it was the best way to pay the bills, and my soul. I write a blog. I gig with Dave Bass. I travel the nation and do workshops and MasterClasses that focus on singing stuff. I want to travel the world and do workshops and MasterClasses that help voice teachers be in love with their businesses.
I have too many books. bel canto was my gateway drugâ€¦ leading to the bigger dangers of psycho-ping, super-belt, scream, voice science, and Jazz. My kids make me flip out in all the ways, good and ill. Iâ€™m the president of the California Capital Chapter of NATS, and just participated in the NATS Intern Program in Toronto.
Degrees? SURE! BA in Music from Patten University, MA in Worship, Theology, and the Arts from Fuller Theological Seminary. I cut formal education teeth at University of Northern Colorado in Musical Theatre AND Vocal Performance.
My teachers include Pamela Hicks, Mary Saunders-Barton, Leslie Mannring, and Sheri Sanders. My mentors include all my clients.
