...I find joy in a lot of places! And often I find these areas of study inform and augment each other.
Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism spectrum disorder, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances and developmental delays as well as teens and adults with psychosocial issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, grief, ADHD, personality disorders, and more.
I incorporate my experience as a therapist into the educative se
As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.
I am a professional vocalist in NYC. I perform liturgical and classical music, as well as musical theater repertoire. I participate in professional operas, choral groups and other concert series, as well as professional theater work. Performing gives me a sense of bliss and completeness that is indescribable.
As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout NYC. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I went on to complete advanced trainings and now specialize in restorative yoga, prenatal yoga, yin yoga and therapeutics. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio, and on occasion in my clients’ homes. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized sequencing to deepen your experience.
It is a joy to offer Reiki to curious, open clients in need of energy healing. Reiki is a noninvasive energy healing technique totally separate of any religious affiliation and available to anyone. It is a difficult to describe the relaxing, soothing, and deep-healing effects of Reiki to someone who has never experienced.
Please feel free to inquire about any of my services!

As a graduate of the Juilliard School and having performed worldwide, I want to share how fun, healthy and effective sing is possible with consistence and informed work! No matter your goals, lets build on the skills you already poses and confidence in your own abilities. Let's sing!
The key to great singing is enthusiasm, focus and some hard work. I have worked with students of all ages and my goal is to get you singing the right way and take you from shower diva to confident performer.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME:
As a professional singer and graduate of The Juilliard Sch
With performances at Carnegie Hall and with major orchestras such as the Toronto, Vancouver and Seattle Symphonies and around the world, I feel this gives me a unique perspective on the challenges and successes that are possible with a fun, yet focused and healthy technique based approach. Whether a beginners, intermediate or advanced singers looking to hone your skills in musical theatre classical, jazz and even pop voice.
My goal is a well rounded, relaxed yet supported vocal tone with a focus on breath, and feeling rather than by ear. This ensures that no matter what the repertoire, the situation, or the acoustics of the room, you are always focused on healthy, articulate and projected singing.

Catherine has continued her pedagogy education at the renowned Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s Teacher Workshop led by Founding Artistic Director Marcia Dale Weary and Associate Artistic Director Darla Hoover. Specializing in Classical Ballet, Pointe/Variations, Choreography, Improv, and Contemporary Ballet, Catherine has held open classes at the legendary New York City Center Studios and travels as a master guest teacher throughout the United States.
My classes are fast paced and challenging filled with positive reinforcement. Class begins with a classical ballet barre, center, and a fluid long waltz, followed by contemporary ballet choreography. I combine various techniques to create a powerful and technically refined dancer. My classes are balanced with humor while focusing on technique, strength, musicality, and performance quality. My classes are open to everyone.
I started dancing at the age of 3. I am well versed in Ballet, Modern and Jazz. I attended Joffrey San Antonio (2004) and Paul Taylor New York (2010) intensives.
While in high school I taught Ballet, Jazz, Pre-Pointe and Pointe classes to dancers age 3-14.
In 2011 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Pedagogy (which is the art or science of teaching).
Since moving to NYC 5 years ago I have been focused on performing with such dance companies as Exit 12 Dance Company (2011-2012) and Community Dance Project (2013-2014). While not dancing with specific companies I have choreographed and danced in two music videos.
I can't express my love for teaching enough! To know that I could help spark the passion of dance in a young person is extremely inspiring.
I would prefer to teach students with professional or aerobic goals. Social dancing is not one of my subjects.

I am originally from Alexandria, Virginia, and have previously taught at the American Conservatory Theater's Young Conservatory as well as A.C.T.'s Citizen Artist program, where I coached disenfranchised youth in the Bay Area. Given the training I have received from some of the world's top institutions (A.C.T., RADA, Yale, Georgetown), I have a significant breadth of knowledge to offer both as an educator and as an active NYC based actor.
Students will be taught to examine all kinds of "ways in" to their work, no matter what we cover, and I will tailor every coaching session to the student's needs, whether that be learning to execute a safe and effective vocal warm up to

I also consulted with Peter on some Shakespearean work. His his deep insight and perspective on the material, based on his professional experience with it, drove my advancement.
Peter clearly enjoys bringing out the potential in other actors.
He is fun, too.
