Ciera says:

"For years, as a performer, I felt stuck trying to perform in a certain “style” that professors and casting agents expected from me. With Rebecca’s help, I’ve been able to hone in on my true voice and through technique and hard work, I have a wide-ranging developed instrument that I feel confident walking into any audition or rehearsal with. Rebecca has taught me how my true and pure vocal instrument is one of the most powerful tools I can carry with me throughout my career."
