Hi! I am new to the DC area after completing my graduate studies and working in NYC. While in NYC, I worked developing curriculum for and teaching an after school music and theater class for under-served high school students in the Bronx, in addition to maintaining a private studio. As an experienced nanny, I am very comfortable with and love working with young children!
As a soprano trained at the Manhattan School of Music and McGill University, I have had the great pleasure of working with leading teachers and directors in the opera world. I have performed in various venues on the east coast including NYC's Lincoln Center, and the Brevard Music Center in North Carolina.
Throughout my performance career, teaching has always brought me great joy! I look forward to meeting you and getting started!

As a voice teacher and voice coach I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you.
It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something entirely different at the University of Maryland, I began studying voice and realized that it was something that I had a gift for. I fell in love with singing art songs, jazz and opera arias. And while studying at the University of Maryland, I had the opportunity to work as a voice teacher/ section leader with the women's section of a choir, numerous opportunities to work as a soloist and in a few jazz clubs. I was also involved in dance performances and acted as a dance tutor.
Later, when I was invited to sing in Denver I had the opportunity to sing in Little Shop of Horrors and to sing with a women's choir. While studying at the University of Colorado Boulder I began to come into my own and started to let my large sound free. (Which for me was a process. Getting your voice where you want it and to where it is capable is work. But, it is fun work and you're always happy when you have these great moments where you get to where you were hoping you could and that your teacher said you would go at some point.) It was there, at CU Boulder that I got the opportunity to start singing in operas. While in Boulder I sang in The Magic Flute, Sarah McKinnon and as a soloist or recitalist.
Also, while there I worked as an actress in a theater company called the Interactive Theater Project for three years. I thought that by getting involved in that that I would be able to act more effectively while singing. It was fun just doing something where you're just working with the spoken word. I had a wonderful time with them and learned a lot about character work and what it takes to connect to the words in an effective way.
In the past few years, I have been a soloist and recitalist in the Washington,DC area and has sang opera in Pennsylvania with Center Stage Opera. Last year, I sang with Center Stage Opera in the role of Bertha. I had the opportunity to sing and to act at the Kennedy Center a few years ago. Also during that time, I
sang in Aleko, the Die Zauberflöte as the Queen of the Night, Serena in Porgy and Bess, and
sang in Ragtime and sang the role of the Wardrobe in Beauty and the Beast.
I am currently working as a soloist and a chorus member and preparing for a recital and auditions in January. I look forward to what things the new year and the rest of the year will bring.

I believe everyone has the ability to sing … some better than others, of course, -- but regardless, I believe every voice can make a beautiful sound. I believe learning to sing requires team work: with the proper instruction and learning tools from me, the instructor, and with the dedication (practice, practice, practice) from you, the student, a well-rounded singer can emerge.
I began singing when I was five years old in church. I continued singing exclusively inspirational music until I was a teenager. At that time, in addition to the second soprano part I sang in a five-part harmony
a Capella (without instrumental accompaniment) Gospel group, I also sang in a couple of bands (Rhythm and Blues, and Jazz). My undergraduate studies were completed at the American University, where I majored in Communications (B.A.), and minored in Music, voice being my instrument. During my undergraduate studies, I was recruited and performed as the lead female vocalist for a Rock band that a few fellow music students had formed. While in college, I was trained in classical voice, piano, music theory, musical theater performance, and vocal pedagogy (vocal training). My vocal pedagogy studies credentialed me to become a professional vocal instructor. I began teaching voice after I earned my degree, and have been teaching private voice lessons for over ten years.
Most of my present expertise in teaching voice grew from my vocal pedagogy studies, my teaching experience which has developed over time, my own personal vocal dedication, and my training and understanding of various genres of vocal performance. My present singing career is as an inspirational singer; my vocal students encompass various genres in which I have experience, including: Inspirational, Rhythm and Blues, Jazz, Rock and Classical.

With almost 20 years of music and theater related experience, and over 10 years as a vocal coach, I start each day fresh with a desire to pass on my passion for the arts.
I have acquired my Bachelor of Music Degree in Voice Performance from Mason Gross School of the Arts in 1997, and am currently working towards my Master of Secondary Education Degree. Along with my traditional schooling, I have taken several Master Classes in Acting Technique and Voice-over.
As a versatile individual, I have had the opportunity to hold a number of professional roles including Drama Teacher, Modeling and Television Instructor, and Private Vocal Coach. I have directed, choreographed, musical directed, and coached many individuals and groups within multiple organizations and age levels. Through these experiences, I have been fortunate enough to educate a diverse group of students, who functioned below-, on-, and above grade level.
My lifelong desire is to be able to share my love of music and theater. God has blessed me with both a love for music and the arts and a desire to teach others about the incredible gift that we have been given. My goal is to instill a sense of music appreciation and performing arts integration, while at the same time teaching students about the technical aspects of music and theater. Through music we are able to express ourselves and our compassion for others.
As a performing artist, I have toured many areas of NJ, DE, and PA, and have now expanded into VA. I have also toured Europe in England, Holland, and Germany with a production of Godspell. My credits are many and each role is unique. I have directed, music directed, and choreographed various productions, and my experience expands from the stage to film; including a performance in a chorus of back-up singers with Rosemary Clooney and Debbie Boone at the Valley Forge Music Fair. Currently, I am the lead singer for my band "End of Silence", and will be touring this coming year. We are looking to record soon.
I continue to perform and study current trends to keep up with the popular demands of the youth. Staying in the performing world is essential to providing the most up to date information and trends to my students.
I look forward to each and every lesson, and love to see my students shine. It is amazing to see the spark in a students eye as he or she follows his or her dreams. I look forward to teach your son, daughter, or yourself and passing on my passion to fulfill those dreams.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
