Lynne has developed in a niche for coaching solo performers to truly "act the song" and bring all the elements of performance into their vocal presentations. After doing workshops with the music and theatre departments at Luther College, St. Ambrose University, Morningside College, American College Theatre Festival - as well as working with countless high school aged singers at various competitions, Lynne is now making these workshops available to other schools or arts organizations. Her combination of training in vocal technique and theatre enables her to address issues from both areas and lead students to a combination of peak vocal production and truly artistic presentation. These workshops are flexible in format and the students have the opportunity to develop their own performance skills, learn from watching their peers perform - and they also will leave with a set of tools with which to approach future work. For more information and scheduling possibilities please contact Lynne Rothrock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Information informed by experience. Her workshops speak to the skilled singer as well as the novice. Lynne is fun, funny and gets fantastic results. Really worth the money!"
- Dr. Cory Johnson Professor of Theatre St. Ambrose University

She holds a B.A. in Music Education and Theatre from Luther College and a Master's of Music in Voice from Western Michigan University.

Lynne can arrive in a community prior to the concert day and work with individual singers on almost any style of repertoire in a masterclass setting. She has done masterclass and guest lecture work at Luther College, Coe College, Belmont University, St. Ambrose University, Morningside College, the Iowa Choral Director's Assn. summer convention, and Iowa Music Educators Conference. She has served as the ACDA repertoire and standards chairperson for Jazz and Showchoir for the state of Tennessee.
