Hello!
Thanks so much for visiting my profile :)
My name is Kayla, I'm an operatic mezzo-soprano with performance degrees from the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College and the Royal Academy of Music in London.
I have been performing for over a decade and have appeared in operas, musicals, and concerts in the NYC area and internationally.
In addition to voice and audition prep, I also teach guitar, piano, and song writing.
I am an alumna of LaGuardia High School of the Arts and would be happy to help any student looking into auditioning there or preparing for NYSSMA.
While opera is my specialism and I love teaching students to sing in new languages, I also sing and teach in a variety of styles including musical theatre, indie rock, and jazz. A student can bring any type of music into a lesson and we will have you singing it with ease in no time! Whether you're looking to learn to sing in any style, get acquainted with the piano, strum along to your favorite songs, or improve your ear, I'm here to help! I want to give each student the same positive experience that I've had with music.

Opera Voice · In studio

One of the most talented teachers and singers I've ever worked with! Kayla is so knowledgeable in every aspect of singing: technique, interpretation, or fiction! She's helped me prepare for roles and work on my repertoire multiple times, always making me feel so much better afterwards! You could not pick a better or nicer teacher!

Kayla is a warm, friendly, nurturing young lady. Her training and knowledge of opera is evident in her voice. Kayla makes an effort to enhance a students natural voice and build confidence.
