About Me

I hold a Masters Degree in Music from George Mason University. Since relocating to New England, I have been on stage at Theatre by the Sea, Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston, and The Granite Theatre. I can also be seen on the ABC TV show "Body of Proof".

A native of the Washington DC Metropolitan area, I have performed with the Washington Opera Company, at the Kennedy Center, and Historic Maryland's Adventure Theatre. New York City credits include performances off-Broadway for the York Theatre Company, CAP21, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

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.

Proud Member of Actors Equity Association, SAG-AFTRA, and the National Association of Teachers of Singers.

*** 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.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard in studio w/ seating in separate room for parents. However, if you are a parent, seating is not available in the evenings Mon-Fri starting at 4 pm. I apologize for the inconvenience. Also, please note for allergy purposes, I own 2 cats.

Subjects Taught

About Me

I am a recent graduate of Rhode Island College with a degree in both Music and Musical Theatre. With my music degree, I strongly focused on musical theatre pedagogy as well as classical music. I also trained extensively in dance and acting which I believe has helped me tremendously when teaching voice. I also have studied piano for the past 10 years and continue to train in voice.

My approach to teaching, whether it be voice or piano, is one with care and concern for the student. Each student is an individual and will take in knowledge in different ways. I always like to cater my teaching to whatever the students needs are. This requires observation and experimentation on my part. When I find what works, it makes for a more productive lesson for my student and I. In voice, I have a strong passion for musical theatre and contemporary genres. My focus is on students learning contemporary genres in the most healthy but stylistically accurate way. I believe the singer has to be multi-faceted to have a flourishing career in the world of music. To just sing one genre is unrealistic in this day in age. I want to help my students grow to be diverse singers who have a healthy technique that will get them through any career they may pursue.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide music. Student is required to have a full size keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
I have a main focus in musical theatre and contemporary style singing. I believe the versatile singer should be able to sing any genre with proper technique while being stylistically correct. I also like to incorporate my acting knowledge into lessons, helping students not only sing but act out the song. I also can teach classical voice.
