I believe that creativity is a positive force in our world.
It has the power to heal, validate, energize, and give meaning to both its giver and receiver. Music is one of the most beautiful forms of creativity that exists!
I'm a songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, and have taught private voice sessions for 10+ years.
I've written and recorded 4 studio albums of my own music, and collaborated with a number of other talented musicians, songwriters, DJs and producers in Los Angeles and New York. I've performed live in many venues in NYC and Los Angeles, and almost every state in between.
Our lessons are designed to not only help you improve your singing voice, but to help you become more confident as a performer, and more comfortable expressing yourself in a way that is uniquely YOU!
Whatever level you're at with singing, we can individualize your lessons to cover everything that's important to you. I believe in supporting and encouraging my students, and making our lessons a be a safe atmosphere for you to experiment, try new things, and not feel self-conscious about making mistakes.
My music experiences range from the world of film scoring in Los Angeles, to rock and pop studio collaborations, to performing live and touring, to behind-the-scenes work in digital music distribution. I also have a background in working with people who are differently abled, both individually and in groups, with singing, piano, guitar, instrument exploration, rhythm, and movement.
It's my joy to combine my passion and experience with the arts, in order to help others from all walks of life get connected with their own self-expression.

Vocals / Songwriting / Guitar for NYC indie band Young Unknowns.
“If you’ve ever dreamt of having your heart broken in New York, this music might push you a little closer… their style is one of smooth, jaunty pop, with an astonishingly potent melancholy lining the seams of ‘Far Enough’ – The NEU Bulletin
“Whether it’s the incredibly mystifying and powerful vocals or the stunning ambient, ’90s-esque indie rock undertones provided by the band, everything about this group sounds refreshing and thoroughly appealing.” – The Owl Mag
"Sultry, soulful electro gently infused with the
most effervescent chorus this side of sea
level..." - Dots & Dashes

I do project pitches for my company at client sites and Meredith has been incredible at helping me refine my talking points, and has even consulted on my core offering, allowing me to reflect on what’s more important in my pitches, and has overall helped me feel more comfortable in how I’m communicating. I believe she has been responsible for me being able to land my most recent contract, which was huge! I highly recommend Meredith, she’s incredibly patient and understands why I do what I do, and directs me to communicate from that truth, which has helped me immensely!+ Read More

Not only was she helpful, but she was patient, and she knew how to work with what she had in me. She gave me the confidence I need as well!!!! She made it fun, and I will definitely recommend her to others.+ Read More
Meredith was exactly what I needed! Im an actor but not a professional singer and she was patient, made me feel so comfortable and understood immediately where I was starting from. Her teaching style was a perfect fit for me. She gave me real techniques and tips that helped me on the spot and then I improved more and more as I practiced. I have a confidence now walking into an audition where singing is required that I didn't have before and that is totally because of Meredith.+ Read More
