Teaching since:

I've been lucky enough to have achieved my dream of performing on Broadway and I love sharing what I've learned over my twenty year career. Singing is a natural expression of who we are, no matter our "talent" or skill level. It's not mysterious or scary if you know how to direct your energies and coordinate your thoughts, your breath, and your voice. It should always be fun, a true expression of your individuality. The greatest singers in the world don't sound like anyone else. They sound like THEMSELVES! I'll maximize the beauty, expression, and ease of your sound, whether you're a beginner or have a final callback for a Broadway show.
