I believe that training your voice in a healthy way is key to becoming a successful singer! I'm happy to help you with any goals that you have, and we'll create a lesson plan that works especially for you! I teach all levels of students from beginners to professional performers. I have successfully prepared students for auditions and many of my students have been accepted to prestigious performing arts high schools and conservatories. I currently teach music lessons and musical theater classes at Garden Street School of the Performing Arts in Hoboken.
I've always had a passion for singing, and I began performing at a young age in community theater musicals As a singer/songwriter I perform regularly around New York City with my band. While studying at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music I performed as the lead vocalist in several performance ensembles, including The Art Blakey Ensemble and The Brazilian Jazz Ensemble. These ensembles were directed by world renowned jazz musicians including Charles Tolliver and Adam Holzman.
