Singing should be as easygoing and fun as an exciting conversation! Communication is key! Once the building blocks are in place, my students are free to express themselves in any genre of music with a wide range of emotions! From the very first lesson, I create a safe, nurturing environment where the exploration of discovering my student's true voice becomes effortless and natural! I would love to have you join me in an unforgettable journey of discovering how to express yourself through singing!

About Joyce C.

A personal technique for expression - for Professional Training! Or for Fun!! I enjoy teaching students of all ages and for diverse reasons! As a professional singing actress having performed leading roles on Broadway, New York City Opera and the international operatic stage for over 30 years, I would like to share my experience with you! (See my performance bio below)

Mezzo-soprano Joyce C. has made an international career on the operatic and concert stages as well Broadway, Off Broadway and Regional Theatre throughout the country.

Representative companies and orchestras with which she has performed include Dresden Semper Oper, Opera Ireland, New York City Opera, Dallas Opera, Opera Omaha, Portland Opera, Anchorage Opera, Nevada Opera, The Opera Festival of New Jersey, Connecticut Grand Opera, Minnesota Opera, Orlando Opera, Cleveland Opera, Syracuse Opera, Opera Nevada, Central City Opera, Connecticut Opera, Pittsburgh Opera Theatre, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Denver Symphony, Minnesota Symphony, Rockford Symphony, North Carolina Symphony, Evansville Philharmonic, Hartford Symphony, and Kasugai Symphony of Japan among others. Her performance credits include major orchestral works and many leading roles in opera and -music theatre, including the title roles in Carmen, Der Rosenkavalier, La Cenerentola, L’Italiana in Algeri, and Regina.

Joyce's early career in New York City began in the theatre, where she appeared on Broadway with Yul Brynner in The King and I as his first wife, Lady Thiang, as well as at the New York Shakespeare Festival, The Public Theatre, Paper Mill Playhouse and numerous other regional houses. Television audiences have seen Joyce in the role of Julie in The New Moon with New York City Opera, which was nationally broadcast as part of PBS’s “Great Performances” series. Contemporary music performances of note include the role of Margret in Christopher Alden’s disquieting Dallas Opera production of Wozzeck and in the groundbreaking 20th Century opera, Six Characters in Search of an Author in which she portrayed Madame Pace.

Her facile comedic skills were displayed in a number of Gilbert and Sullivan roles, favorites being: Katisha in The Mikado at City Center-New York City; Buttercup in HMS Pinafore with Anchorage Opera and Central City Opera. In Detroit with Michigan Opera Theatre she portrayed a hilarious and touching Ruth in The Pirates of Penzance.
