I am a professional Classical Singer. I began my career in Europe with Sintra Estúdio de Opera (Portugal) performing in modern premieres of many Portuguese Baroque Masterpieces in renown Venues and Festivals. There I studied at ESML with Soprano Silvia Mateus and later came to the USA to obtain my Master’s Degree at Converse College studying with Dr. Beverly Hay.

Living in New York since 2011 I have been dedicated to premiering new operatic works and developing independent projects. Some of my past roles include 1st Which in Dido and Aeneas, Laurie in The Tenderland, Mimì in La Bohème, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Dina in Cries and Whispers, Mia in The Seventh Seal, Esther in Esther, Josie in Eintein's Dreams and recently Annina in La Traviata with both Regina Opera Company and Amore Opera of New York City.

I am also a Yoga Teacher, Harmonyum and Sound Healing Practitioner.

I believe my work stands out in the sense that I am combining 3 different fields of knowledge (Psychology, Music and Yoga) which allow me see the student in different lights and teach the student and not the method.

I would love to have you in my studio!

Classical Voice · In studio

I knew the moment I met Alexandra that she was an artist and teacher of the highest integrity. The way she spoke about singing even in conversation, the way she fine tunes every exercise for the matter at hand, her precise, colorful, creative descriptions, the ease, selectivity and discretion of her comments, her capacity to dispense the right information at the RIGHT TIME, and her ability to work collaboratively, make her the finest singing teacher I've ever known and a source of constant inspiration and motivation.

Alexandra is a fantastic teacher and I could not recommend her enough. She has excellent knowledge about the voice and helped me immensely with my technique and musicality. She helped me thoroughly prepare for my music conservatory auditions and I got the place! She arranged beautiful recitals for her students to share work and progress. Alexandra is a very generous teacher who love of singing transmits to her students. I am so grateful that I studied with her.
