I am a singer and a passionate teacher. I have a Master of Music in Voice Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, and a Bachelor of Music from UMass Amherst. I have performed in Washington DC, New York, Hawaii and New England in classical, opera, musical theater, folk, and cabaret shows. I have taught kids through adults in all styles of music.
In addition to teaching good vocal technique, I also train my students in performing and interpreting their songs. I give lessons based on two principals: 1st, Singing is about communication. You cannot divorce the meaning from the song. 2nd, each person is capable of creating a unique interpretation and performance of every song they sing. My desire is to help students learn to express themselves through music.
