My Teaching Philosophy

The study of voice science and how it relates to singing is a passion of mine.  I firmly believe that learning never stops and am a proud member of The National Association of Teachers of Singing. Through them and their sister organizations, NYSTA and PAVA, I attend continuing education workshops and seminars several times a year.

Healthy vocal production is the key to beautiful singing, no matter the style you wish to perform.  In my studio, students receive well-rounded training.  I teach classical techniques geared toward the performance of the art song repertoire, oratorio, opera, light opera, and musical theatre.  We also delve into song interpretation, acting, and performance.

I also work with injured singers in conjunction with their speech-language pathologist or ENT office.

My students range in age from 10 to adult. My goal is to ensure that all singers, no matter the skill level, enjoy their journey and be the best that they can be.  Lessons can be 30, 45, or 60 minutes a week.  I recommend that children under the age of 14 start with 30 minutes.

Please contact me for more information or to set up an appointment.
