I have been blessed to make my living in the arts for many years. As a professional actress, musical director, producer and vocalist, I have seen how the Broadway and concert community work first-hand. I have been teaching voice and piano privately in NYC for over 20 years, with a number of clients currently on Broadway and in National tours (Jersey Boys, Lion King, Spamalot, etc.). I’ve toured as a pop recording artist and as a classical concert soloist throughout Europe, I’ve coached students from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and Yale’s Summer Program, taught Singing for Musical Theatre at NYC’s Circle in the Square, and directed many high level summer programs for students age 6-18 and beyond.
I know well how the music business works and what students should learn to thrive and survive within it. I work regularly in a number of recording studios with many clients therein as well, and truly enjoy watching the progress and musical development of those I teach. And on weekends in New England I can be found either singing jazz or with my husband’s friends who thrive in R&B and the Blues.
