I have been teaching since 2013 as a music instructor. Currently I teach at 3 music schools; EKS in Quincy, Bach to Rock in Wellesley, and Piano Playtime in Milton and Arlington. I also currently work as a section leader or ringer for First Parish Church in Lexington. I also frequently perform in private residences with a small chamber group I call "Sole Durato" or setting sun in Italian. We also perform at various retirement homes and music festivals such as Newbury Nights and the Caspian Music Mondays series in Vermont. In the past I have also worked as a pop and jazz singer at various restaurants playing anywhere from 4-6 times per week.
I work as a piano instructor for "Piano Playtime" on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This is a program that travels around to different schools and teaches beginning piano lessons for up to three students at a time in 30 minute lessons.

I serve as a voice instructor at Bach to Rock in Wellesley (200 Linden St a, Wellesley, MA 02482). I teach individual lessons on Saturdays and Mondays and I am available to teach guitar and piano at this location as well.

I currently work as EKS as a voice instructor. In the past I have taught both private lessons and a voice class for 7-9 year olds. Due to my other teaching positions I only work at EKS once a week on Fridays.

I have worked on and off as an independent voice instructor since 2013. I have taken multiple vocal pedagogy courses as part of my masters degree and I currently teach two students.
I have over 6 years experience analyzing music. My background in composition fostered a love of analysis that I carried to my graduate studies as a classical vocalist. As a graduate student, I analyzed nearly all my recital music including several tonally ambiguous pieces by Charles Ives. Though I have trained as a performer of classical music I have also performed many gigs of popular music where I have developed a large repertoire of 4 hours of music. To achieve this, I became proficient in reading and transposing lead sheets and I have a firm understanding of chord substitutions.
I have worked as a professional section leader or ringer for over 7 years. I have been employed at First Parish Church in Lexington, Park Street Church in downtown Boston, FUMC of LaGrange in Georgia, and FPC of Auburn Alabama. I have also been an occasional guest at Old South Church in downtown Boston. As a section leader I help the other singers in my choir section stay on pitch, point out rhythmic errors and serve as a soloist whenever it is needed.
