As a working performing artist with professional connections and experience in the fields of piano, opera, musical theatre, theatre, film, commercial work, modeling, voice over, singer/songwriter/producer/independent music artist, dance, and stage combat, I have the knowledge to help guide young artists seeking a professional career whether they are just starting out as a young child or whether they have an advanced degree! From choosing the best city to make your home base to finding the right agent or manager (What's the difference between an agent or manager? Are they different? What are their jobs? How can they help me? How do I pay them? When should I get them?) to choosing the right schools and degree programs, I can help you make smart choices for yourself and appear professional and confident in any situation you might find yourself in! (Related to the business side of being an artist anyway) If you need answers to questions that I don't have the answer for, I also have a large contact list of mentors, friends, and colleagues to pull from with music attorneys, professional working artists, casting directors, other coaches, directors, conductors, producers, and more!

Having an international career of 20 years crossing different genres, I coach artists to start and develop a career and musicianship. I have been a mentor at New York Foundation for the Arts and at IBOC Company. I created a mentoring program structured that combines with specific demands of the artists. The program includes songwriting, arrangement, music production, vocal coach, composition, and more. In English, Español ou Português! Classes are a very fun and practical way to learn and create your songs, as well being inspired by other tunes! It can be based on playing by ear or writing scores and chords. Also, includes training on technique, creativity and composing, to start putting your ideas together to create your own songs or your own arrangement for composers you like! Write your own music and tell your stories! * Classes in studio in NYC or online too. Please ask for it by message! PROGRAM: - chord progressions - melodies structures - style characteristics - writing lyrics and how to connect with melodies - choosing chords - analyzing songs - Suggesting books for reading and working with - how to produce and record your songs home Practicing rhythms, melodies, harmonies, chords, you will develop your musicality and apply everything in your own repertoire. Using apps, videos, tracks, you will have amazing material to follow along, watch references and read your special instructions. Choose to add music theory and harmony, composing to your program if you wish. Special projects in season cycles will happen to motivate your study and give you opportunities to show your progress. Working with a coaching plan makes your development easier and stronger! In this class, you will also learn: • Music Appreciation • Learn different genres, styles, music from different parts of the world • Music History & Composer • Study composers and compare old & new styles • Interpretation and body movements • Rhythm practice • Working on memorizing technique And beyond music: • Language Development and Emergent Literacy • Social and Emotional Development • Cognition and General Knowledge • Physical and Motor Development • Approaches to Learning and Motivation

I specialize in helping clients evaluate — and make smart decisions about — the relationship of their finances and their art, and in developing routines and structures that support the creative process from inception to presentation. We'll build our work together from your goals, your art, your values, and your strengths. Potential topics include project organization, time management, budgeting, contract negotiation, networking, album production and release strategies, PR, and grant writing. Over the past fifteen years, I’ve written for and played with orchestras, operas companies, rock bands, and experimental music groups in the US and abroad; scored short films; successfully applied for significant grants from Chamber Music America and the New York State Council for the Arts; project managed the release of five albums and contributed to a dozen others; was the co-executive director and co-artistic director of Invisible Anatomy, an internationally-performing avant-rock ensemble; worked in nonprofit arts administration for The Walden School and The Mingus Foundation; and maintained a for-profit teaching business.
