I have been teaching Opera voice since I graduated from Roosevelt and it's been a long and fun journey. I am always happy to coach classical repertoire as it has a special place in my heart. I even used to run an Opera on Tap, a monthly event for young talented singers and also have some great connections in Chicago classical music scene.
I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.
I emphasize classical technique from a physical perspective, and lessons are sometimes a body awareness workout. Through this approach, we discover what the student's voice truly is, instead of attempting to mimic popular artists.
Opera Voice lessons are the same as Classical Voice lessons, but emphasizing power, endurance, and opera repertoire.
