About Bree

Bree Switzer took singing for granted until the age of sixteen, when her parents suggested she audition for a high school choir. Bree loved to sing, but did not think of herself as a “singer”. To her surprise, she passed the audition and her membership in the choir over the next three years made high school a joyful experience. She found that when she sang for an hour in the morning, she almost always had a good day.

Now, 20 years later, Bree has made it her profession to help as many people as she can to benefit from the joy of singing in the way she has since that time.

Education:

Bree studied voice and music composition at Selkirk College in Nelson BC, Canada for two years. She then studied choir conducting and waldorf pedagogy for two years in England. 

Experience:

Bree has been teaching voice lessons, singing workshops and directing choirs for 12 years. She taught classroom music in primary and middle school for 8 years. She has brought singing into many workplaces including Gjensidige insurance in Oslo, Norway, and Coradine Aviation Systems in Portland, Oregon.

Why singing? Why Bree?

Bree has been  a passion for helping groups of people find unison and harmony together, reduce their day-to-day stress, and strengthen their working relationships and overall job enjoyment through singing! Twelve years ago Through her work in classrooms, with colleagues, and with an parent/teacher choir at her former place of employment, she developed a great love for helping regular, every-day-people find their voice and experience the joy of singing.
