I have been teaching voice lessons for 15 years, and am a graduate of The JUILLIARD SCHOOL, Louisiana State University, and am currently pursuing my doctorate degree from Stony Brook University, where I am a voice teacher as well. I have performed with The METROPOLITAN OPERA since 2007, as well as with many regional opera companies, symphony orchestras, and concert festivals throughout the US.
As your teacher, I will help you improve the technical aspects of singing (such as breath control, voice "placement" and production, and stamina) as well as the practical aspects of singing (language, style, and audition preparation). Together we will clearly identify your goals as a singer, and work to achieve those goals.
Music is a universal language, and singing can be THE MOST self-expressive form of music! As your teacher, we will balance fun and hard work, and find the most efficient and easy form of singing, to give you freedom and security in your singing.
I have performed as a principal artist at the MET OPERA, as well as a member of the full-time Chorus there. I perform onstage in around 150 performances per year.
