I am a professional classical singer and vocational pianist based in New York City. As a singer, I've performed throughout the US and in Europe, including NYC's Carnegie Hall, Boston's Symphony Hall, LA's Disney Hall, and the Festival Musique en l'Ile in Paris, as both a soloist and an ensemble singer. I have a degree in music and eight years of experience teaching both piano and voice. I am passionate about teaching kids (and adults) music fundamentals and about helping them find the spark that will keep them interested and growing. I believe it is important to teach good technical and musical habits from the beginning, along with basics of music theory. But I believe it is just as important to explore the student’s individual motivations for learning an instrument and what will bring them a sense of accomplishment and joy. This is also what is fun for me!
