Welcome! One possible snapshot: With piano or guitar, I accompany my student in a song they choose and we create a rendition together, which often culminates in a video or "live studio" type of recording of it. Another possible snapshot: At the piano, I help develop a voice by vocalization, guiding them through an infinitely detailed work of awareness, technique and aural control. Yet another: A singer-songwriter student works with me on their composition. We create a printable, publishable score of their song, reviewing decisions and polishing gestures along the way. You can count on: • Vocal training (correcting the natural faults of the Voice, dissolving rigidity and confinement of the Voice) • All things COMPOSITION • Classical PIANO training • Content-heavy music literacy. Not just the mere "code" of notes and rhythm, but the patterns and qualities of music regarded as movement, gestures and character. • Integrative training for the singer including notions of dramaturgy, mimics, declamation, and most enthusiastically, FOREIGN LANGUAGES. • Guidance to a well-trained attentive HEARING that enables the rise of knowledge and control in music-making regardless of genre. The studio is a broad welcoming space located on the first floor of an old Victorian mansion in the Denver Uptown neighborhood. In Broomfield, I receive students at my living room piano. About me: I have been dedicated for the last 9 years to the historic study of the Operatic Voice. Before that I earned two diplomas in music composition and pedagogy. Composing songs and pieces of music, as well as studying guitar, piano and percussion later, has been a means to further a vital singing desire that burns in my heart since childhood.

While I have only had 1 lesson with Andrea so far, I can tell she has the utmost knowledge about the vocal anatomy and is able to effortlessly convey these concepts into easy to grasp terms. She made me feel very much at ease and was extremely personable!
She was great! Very professional and "scientific", if that is the correct term. Regarding the vocal instrument, she talked about muscles, physiology, etc.
Andrea knows what she is doing. I have had great success in getting my voice stronger, more resonant, and pleasant. My singing voice which has been extremely problematic is coming back. She gives me the correct exercises which makes all the difference.
