I am an internationally-produced composer and lyricist, with over 15 years of experience in musical theater and composition. I have studied at Juilliard and the Tony Award-winning BMI Musical Theatre Writing Workshop, and hold a Master of Music degree in Composition from Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music. I am an energetic champion of new music, and a founding member of NYC's Composers Collective. I bring a lot of enthusiasm to my lessons, and love helping my students to grow their understanding of the inner workings of music and lyrics!
Songwriting and Composition students can expect to learn building blocks to help them understand musical structure while developing their own voice. I am passionate about craft in lyric writing, and songwriting students will learn about scansion, rhyme schemes, and how to structure a song to make it catchy and memorable. I love working with students to take classic songs and pieces apart and figure out what makes them work, and to then help students use these techniques to make their own work soar!
Music Theory students can expect to learn the mechanics of music in a fun, upbeat setting, and develop their understanding of the music theory through familiarity with the keyboard, notation, and fun composition exercises.
I look forward to working with you!

I took a songwriting class that Kit taught at Schenectady County Community College, and it was a lot of fun and extremely helpful! She knows tons about all sorts of song genres both as a composer and a lyricist, and helped me understand a lot of basic ideas about music composition that I'd never really grasped. I would study with her again if she were back in town!+ Read More
