About Me

During my years in public schools I taught a variety of age ranges and subjects including kindergarten general music, beginning band, high school chorus, and remedial middle school English and language arts. I have professional Yoga training and enjoy incorporating aspects of that when tutoring adult, middle school, high school, and elementary students. I also uses Yoga, brain respiration and other healing techniques in my lessons as needed.

Every student has a potential for greatness no matter what their strengths and weaknesses are. No matter your age or ability level I will help you set your goals and reach them. All students should want to learn. I expect my students to be prepared and have an open mind. Learning to sing is a process.

We all grow and learn together and improve every time we try. I expect my students to do the best they can, practice regularly, be on time and have patience.

About Me

Born to sing, is something I take to heart. I believe that any one can learn to sing. Most people desire to be a singer and I am here to show you how. I believe that with the proper training and consistent practice to perfect your craft, you can do it! Most people can sing, they just have not been taught how to properly do it. My motto is "Singing should be as easy as talking". Each student is individually assessed and I design a program that it catered to you, and only you. Each student will work at their own pace. I also provide the opportunity to perform in my seasonal showcases.

I have a passion for music, I have a passion for seeing people progress, so teaching voice is something that comes natural for me. I have over 8 years of teaching voice of all types. I have taught mostly in individual and group settings. I have taught classical, jazz, r&b/pop and studio voice. I can ensure that you will have a grand experience.

Expect a great experience! When learning to sing you want to make sure the experience was worth while. Singing is fun, relaxing, and can bring out a different confidence within. I aspire to teach you in a manner that caters to each student. In order to progress, you must practice your craft, so yes expect homework. When you return for your next lesson, the time you spent practicing on your own time will reveal itself.

After 3 to 6 months, you would have learned techniques and routines that will continue to enhance your health, your confidence and most importantly your voice.

About Me

Would you like to maximize the potential for your child or for yourself to develop as a vocalist and as an artist? Why not learn from a seasoned professional? I am a professional singer, having performed over the past 20 years with opera companies, orchestras, and theater companies across the United States and in Europe. I love music and I love performing. What I also l love, in fact am passionate about, is helping others to find the richness that comes from learning about music and about performing. I love seeing that sparkle in the eye when one of my students masters that tough song. I love celebrating with a student when he or she gets that vocal scholarship to college, or makes All-State Chorus, or gives a brilliant recital!
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from the University of Georgia, and have also spent two summers studying at the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria. In addition I spent two years apprenticing with Florida Grand Opera in Miami and one season apprenticing with Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown, NY.
I have sung leading roles with numerous opera companies across the country, including New York City Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Washington National Opera, Atlanta Opera, New York Opera Project, Minnesota Opera, Arizona Opera, Hawaii Opera Theater, and Opera Theater of Saint Louis, among many others. I have performed as soloist with orchestras in Atlanta, New York, Birmingham, Anchorage, Flagstaff, upstate New York, and in Paris, France; Chartres, France; Graz, Austria; and Maribor, Slovenia. I've also begun to branch out into musical theater in cities like Atlanta, Toledo, and Shreveport.
I'm certainly not only interested in opera and classical music. I love jazz and rock and pop and Broadway. One thing I've learned from singing everywhere from on stage at Lincoln Center to the neighborhood karaoke venue is that regardless of the genre, the basic technique is the same! I have students who would love to perform on the world's stages. Some, however, would prefer to make their way on Broadway. Some want to sharpen their talents to become the next "American Idol". The great thing about singing at a very high level is that regardless of the type of music, the basics are the same. I can help you or your child develop to the greatest potential. And with a solid technique, you will be able to perform even when you may not be at your best!

*** Lesson Details ***
Each of your lessons with me is tailored to what your goals are. We'll work on proper breathing, good tone production, and confident performance technique. I use several effective vocal exercises to develop these techniques, and I will help to guide you in making good choices in repertoire that you wish to work on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in the living room, one wall is all mirrors, piano

*** Specialties ***
The thing about singing well regardless of genre -- classical, jazz, Broadway, pop, country -- is that it is all based on the one thing, and that one thing is a solid technique. Having a 20-year career as a performing classical singer, my knowledge of classical music is more extensive than, say, my knowledge of country. However, since the basic technique for all genres is centered on good breath control and support, I can help you or your child regardless of the type of music that is desired to be studied.

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching Style and Curriculum - My teaching style is relaxed yet progressive. I use positive reinforcement to encourage
progress with adults and children. Students
are allowed to progress at their own pace which varies with age, coordination,
processing speed and previous exposure to musical education.
I prefer the Alfred’s Basic Piano Library series for my
piano students. I find that my students
learn more music theory and music reading with this series. If the student has started lessons in a
different series, I can work with that as well. I have a large music library
that provides a wide selection of music in addition to the Alfred books. I
expect most beginning students to learn basic music reading and theory in 3 to
6 months. They should also to be able to play simple tunes in that time.
I am an active professional singer, so I have a large
library of vocal material at my disposal.
I begin my voice lessons with breathing techniques and vocal placement
using widely accepted exercises coming from a large body of sources such as:
Vaccai, professional level vocal teachers, coaches and directors that I have
worked with and learned from over the last 30 years, and the writings of highly
acclaimed authors in the vocal field. I also have a wide selection of art song
books, oratorio, musical theatre, and opera. My background is classical and musical theatre,
but I believe all styles of singing need the basic skills of breathing and vocal
placement. I strive to keep voices
healthy as well as find each student’s most beautiful sound. Most students will
see progress in breath control, range, projection and diction in 3 to 6 months.
Repertoire is chosen on an individual basis depending both physical and musical
ability. Younger students and beginners will be encouraged to not push their
voices with material that is too difficult for their individual abilities
because singing requires a certain amount of physical endurance. My goal is to
find each student’s natural sound without strain for whatever style he or she
sings.
