Emily is a vocal coach at Maughan Studios School of Music in Oklahoma City. Emily’s performance experience began at an early age singing at festivals and community events in the Oklahoma City area.

Worth, TX), Sac & Fox Casinos (Shawnee/Stroud), Koma Fan Jam, Grape Ranch (Okemah), Festival of Arts, Integris Health’s road shows at various hospitals in Oklahoma, and many other venues around the state.
Emily currently performs with the Royal Dukes cover band at private parties and corporate events, and she is also half of an acoustic duo called “ME” with her friend Matt Cowell. ME performs weekly at Hensleys’s Top Shelf Grill in Yukon.
In addition to singing, Emily is an aspiring actress. She has appeared in local and national TV commercials, industrial films, and print ads. She was chosen for a role in a video and state-wide billboard campaign sponsored by Oklahoma State Board of Regents for Higher Education.
The stage should feel like your home away from home. You should walk into any environment and feel confident and composed- but this takes time, practice, and experience. At the Stage Performance Workshop, you will learn various methods and techniques that will take your stage presence to the next level. You will gain insight on how to present yourself authentically, how to connect with your audience, and tips and tricks on how to enhance your overall performance.
Students will be expected to prepare one song to perform at the workshop with Emily. (Bonus points if you prepare two songs in contrasting styles!) This is a great time to pull out that song you'll be performing in the Spring Recital, Arts Festival, or the school musical!
