I have always had music play a pivotal role in my life. I began studying voice during high school under the tutelage of Mandy Gambal and Chris Henry. During this time I was an active leader in the music department having been part of the PMEA District 10 Chorus, Region 5 Chorus and All State Chorus. I was the first person to rank number one on a vocal part in the history of Pocono Mt West. Additional studies at The University of The Arts, The Boston Conservatory, and East Stroudsburg University have only strengthened my musical foundation. During my time at those schools, I sang with many prestigious and diverse ensembles including the Philly Pops. My with the renowned tenor Garry Grice allowed me to flourish in the classical realm. I have been on stage in productions with the Amici Opera Company and the Pennsylvania Lyric Opera Theater. My most recent performance was the role of 'Anatoly' in Northampton Community College's production of "Chess." Currently, I teach at several locations throughout the Lehigh Valley including my Bethehem studio. My future goals include continuous vocal and piano studies, participating in more opera productions, and one day singing with the Metropolitan Opera. I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing.

Thanks for checking out my profile! I would love to help you discover, strengthen and improve your voice.
Here's a little bit about me: I attended Syracuse University where I received a bachelor's degree in vocal performance. I then traveled down south to get my Master's from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX. I served as Administrative Director for the Gregg Smith Singers' Adirondack Festival of American Music in Lake Placid, NY and performed with the all-female a cappella ensemble, The Mandarins, for whom I was director and vocal percussionist, as well as a Varsity Vocals award-winning soloist and arranger. I've played the role of Marcellina in Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, as well as lead roles in Anything Goes, Me and My Girl, Annie Warbucks and Oliver. I have performed with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, traveled internationally with the Southwestern Jazz Combo and have been a featured artist on the FEBC radio station in Seoul, Korea. For the past few years I have judged many singing competitions in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. I'm currently Director of Music Ministry at Mount Bethel Church and a vocal instructor for a large studio specializing in opera, musical theatre, jazz and church music.

Performing has been a lifelong endeavor for Tanya in every field from chorus, musical theatre to the operatic stage. A veteran of many choral ensembles, Tanya has had the priviledge of performing with Steven Sametz, Greg Funfgeld, Steven Lord and many more. Upon earning her Bachelor of Music in Music Education and Performance from Moravian College in Bethlehem, Tanya moved to Boston to complete her Masters in Vocal Performance at The Boston Conservatory.
Tanya has studied with some wonderful teachers such as Monique Phinney (The Boston Conservatory), Ruth Drucker (formerly of The Peabody Conservatory) and coaches including Michael Strauss of New Enland Conservatory. Master class experiences have allowed her the opportunity to sing for opera legend Nico Castel, Sondra Kelly and others.
I believe a key part of learning to sing is being excited by the material and the techniques. I aim to make learning fun and have students feel successful at every lesson.
