Lesson Details

Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
As a professional pop/rock singer songwriter and musical theatre performer, I love infusing my teaching with techniques, warm ups, and insights that I've learned over the past few years (and even use myself). I have a BFA in Musical Theatre and have taught beginning piano and voice for the past year. Whether you're interested in singing pop, rock, standards, or Broadway, I will tailor lessons to meet your needs. Shoot me a message if you're interested, and we can set something up!

Teaching since:
2016

I'm a touring vocalist, piano player, and songwriter with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre, and am currently teaching both beginner and intermediate students. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun.

While obtaining my Bachelor's degree, I took regular voice lessons from one of the leading vocal pedagogy experts in the world: Mary Saunders Barton. I also studied various aspects of music and performance, such as the art of auditioning, and music theory. I have spent many years performing in professional, regional musical theater productions, and am happy to work on auditions with my students. Currently, I play gigs regularly in my local area (Philadelphia), tour occasionally, and write and record regularly. My songs have been licensed for national/international TV (E!, MTV, PBS, Netflix, and more).

I typically teach my clients either in their own homes (if within 10 miles of me), or online. I can easily accommodate to teach in my own home as well. I work with singers, piano players, & songwriters of all different ages, with a variety of musical goals.

Both of my daughters love to sing. We signed up for lessons so they could learn their favorite pop songs; one of my daughters also took piano. They've learned how to hit notes easier and how to properly warm up; Lia is great at finding fun ways to keep them engaged while also still learning. The combination of piano and voice for my youngest has been really valuable. I highly recommend Lia for your lessons!
