Hello! I am a professional opera singer, and have studied singing, languages, and diction for over 10 years. Over this time, I've trained my ear to hear the subtleties of language and music, so whether your goals are to communicate clearly in English, or to sing and/or speak with confidence, I am here to help! I love helping my students to feel more confident in their speaking and singing and to have some fun along the way. I graduated from Columbia University cum laude with a B.A. in Sustainable Development, and then focused my music studies at Manhattan School of Music, where I received the President's Award and graduated with a M.M. in Voice. I have performed all over the country! I am passionate about the work I do and sharing my experiences with others. I teach students of all levels and with a wide range of goals and musical ambitions. If you are interested in singing lessons, I will share with you helpful (and sometimes silly!) exercises to build stamina, range, strength, and breath control. And without even realizing it, your musicianship will improve, too! If you are interested in speaking voice lessons, I will draw on my years of experience as a singer to help you speak with confidence and clear pronunciation. You will find yourself communicating more clearly and your voice feeling better than ever :) I look forward to meeting you!

Josh is such an encouraging and gifted teacher. He communicates his enthusiasm for the voice passionately and sensitively and I always feel like he is very present and engaged for our sessions - he never phones it in! I can’t recommend lessons with him highly enough for reaching your vocal goals!
I worked with Joshua to improve the resonance of my speaking voice, and was very happy with the results of the exercises and insight he provided. And just listening to his voice alone is worth the price of admission! I highly recommend working with Joshua.
Great 1st lesson! Very skilled voice teacher! Already learning a lot.
