I am a professional opera singer and voice instructor in New York City. I have an opera, musical theater, church and choral background. I am comfortable teaching all styles of music.
Our singing voice is the instrument that we were each born to play. My goal is to make singing effortless and enjoyable and to help my students build confidence in themselves by developing their instrument.
Together we will work on breathing, speaking and vocal exercises as well as appropriate repertoire singing with beautiful Italian vowels, free of tension and with emphasis on emotional purpose.
It would be my pleasure to work with my students on basic music theory. I can also help students prepare their voices for public speaking engagements.
Currently teaching voice in the NYC area. I also teach in New Orleans and Chicago when I am working or visiting.
I sing at Opera Houses around the country, namely the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Dallas Opera, New Orleans Opera, Kentucky Opera, Madison Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Central City Opera, Mobile Opera, Opera Grand Rapids, Carnegie Hall and many others.+ Read More

It was great :) Thank you so much Angela!
Very friendly and natural style. Lesson well structured and pitched just right.
She is fantastic.. looking forward to continuing our sessions!
Angela is patient, kind, and encouraging. She is very generous in sharing her knowledge and techniques, even for those of us who have never had any voice instruction.
I studied with Angela for a year when I lived in NYC. She was a fantastic teacher! I took lessons to improve the quality of my voice, especially my higher range. I only stopped because I moved, but I would have continued. Angela really gave me confidence while improving my overall technique! I would recommend her to ANYONE!+ Read More

She's always dedicated, creative and in search of the best possible sounds from her students while keeping the lesson atmosphere fun and encouraging.
