I have been a vocal teacher at the Dance Studio of Park Slope in Brooklyn, New York, in addition to coaching students privately. Previously, I taught at the Virginia Institute of the Performing Arts, was Musical Director for The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia's Music and Drama Camp and The Snow Camp Historical Drama Society. I have also taught in Prince William County and Stafford County Virginia Schools and served as a judge for the VTA Middle School One-Act play Competition, VCDA District IX Choral Festival, and the Stafford County Choral Society Scholarship competition. In 2008, I served on the production staff as musical director at the Astors' Beechwood Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island.

*** Lesson Details ***
Not only am I a trained singer, I am also an actor. I understand what it is to communicate and show emotion while singing. Before you can do this, you must also learn healthy singing technique. I will help blend the two.
The first half of each lesson will be dedicated to vocal exercises with the second half to songs I recommend or from your own repertoire. My recommendations may be from a different style of music than you are accustomed to, but I will be working towards helping you sing the style you want to sing.
Every voice is different. As a teacher I want to make sure that my students understand and are comfortable with what they are feeling and hearing. While I am an easy going person, I work very hard to help students find the right path to healthy vocal production.

With an Ivy-league education and over a decade of singing and performing experience, I can offer both a skillful and intelligent approach to honing your instrument. I sing professionally with Opera Providence and Marley Bridges Theatre Co. in Newport. My program credentials include Interlochen Center for the Arts and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, London.
Lessons will focus on what you desire. Unlike many teachers, I won't force you to study something you don't enjoy. I think there are many approaches to healthy and good singing, and I will tailor your coaching to fit the styles you enjoy performing. If you want to belt Carrie Underwood or Train, sing soulfully like Adele or Bruno Mars, bring the house down like Idina Menzel or Neil Patrick Harris, or create immortal art like Anna Netrebko or Pavarotti - I have the breadth of experience and training to help you achieve your dreams.
*** Travel Equipment ***
In my home I use a piano, as well as books and sheet music, and often CDs or tracks from my computer and speakers. If I traveled to a student's home, I would expect them to have at least a piano.
*** Specialties ***
Although I teach opera and classical voice as well, my true specialty is the belt voice for pop singing. Few teachers teach belting, but I teach it well. You cannot sing pop music without knowing how to belt, and I specialize in teaching this technique.
