Teaching since:
August 2008

So I knew I needed to learn the fundamentals before I became a professional singer. I am a classically trained opera singer but my passion is singing musical theatre and acting in shows! With my knowledge of theory I've also discovered a passion in writing and performing my own music as a singer/songwriter.

I've been lucky enough to do several types of theatre in NYC and in regional theatre across the country while maintaining a faithful student base back in NYC. I've studied with some of Manhattan's finest vocal teachers at both Manhattan School of Music and CAP21 Conservatory in classical and theatre styles and taken masterclasses with some of the biggest casting directors and agents in New York City including Sheri Sanders of "Rock the Audition", Stephen Kopel (CD from Broadway's "Beautiful"), Duncan Stewart (CD from Broadway's "Pippin" and "Chicago") and Joy Dewing (CD from Broadway tour "Mamma Mia").

In addition to singing and acting, I've been fortunate enough to work in some fantastic music programs in New York City. I taught voice, guitar, and piano as School of Rock NYC (yep based on the movie) and now currently teach at the musical theatre teen conservatory 'Applause'. I am looking to build more into my private studio and hope to find students that not only want to take lessons, but participate in masterclasses, and given enough people, put on live singing events at cool, and hip venues in the city! I want my lessons to be something everyone can not only learn from, grow, but also experience by doing it. Your level of experience, musicianship, and age doesn't matter. Come to class willing to learn, and I promise you will get the most out of your singing lessons!

Masterclasses Taught:
University of Maine - Preparing the Audition
Penobscot Theatre - Singing with Power
School of Rock - Songwriting 101
