I am a professional singer and actress with opera and musical theater credits. Singing is my passion! I love to sing, and I LOVE to teach others to sing! The human voice is the most natural instrument of all, and helping others to bring out the beauty of the natural instrument that lies within them is something to which I am very devoted. I like to make students feel comfortable and at ease in lessons, and you will find that I am very warm and friendly! Every student is unique, with their own strengths, their own areas for improvement, and their own preference for certain styles of singing. I can help you find what style makes your heart sing! I have a broad range of credits, including the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof with Theodore Bikel (Tzeitel understudy), and Off-Broadway in Fiorello (Marie) and The Rose Tattoo (Flora). Among my many regional credits are Oliver at the Chiswick Park Theater in Sudbury, MA (Nancy), Camelot with Noel Harrison at the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, MA (Nimue/Guinevere understudy), and Is There Life After High School with Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Sharon Lawrence at the Burt Reynolds Theater in Jupiter, FL. I currently hold the post of Soloist at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Needham, and am a Guest Soloist for The Mother Church in Boston. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, where I had four amazing years working with the head of the Music Theatre program, the brilliant and innovative director, Worth Gardner, and music director, Oscar Kosarin. I have received additional training with many renowned pedagogues, including American actress and theatre director, Suzanne Shepherd, New York City, lyric soprano, Sari Gruber, mezzo-soprano Sondra Kelly, and coaches Arlene Shrut from the Juilliard School, Michelle Alexander with Boston Lyric Opera, conductor Gary Wedow, as well as Roger Malouf with the Metropolitan Opera.

I found Mia at a time when I was looking for a vocal coach to help me get my voice back in shape to sing a song my niece wanted me to sing for her wedding. I was blessed to find Mia who was patient and focused on helping achieve this goal to everyone's satisfaction. I have had many voice teachers in the past and Mia far exceeded all of them in her style of teaching. She never gives up on finding ways to help her students understand their instrument (the voice) and use it to the best of their abilities. She takes the time to get to the heart of how to improve the voice and does it in such a way as to share her experiences to help the student learn techniques to utilize the full potential of our instrument (the voice.) If one technique does not work, she finds another. It has taken me years to fully understand how to use my voice in a way where I do not overthink but instead am confident in knowing through the use of these techniques how to let my voice sing. Thank you Mia for never giving up on helping your students reach their full singing potential and for sharing your joy of singing with your students!
Mia is amazing!! love her
Mia’s experience came through right away and I was glad I found her through this site. We started working on a few things to improve technique and Mia pointed out several major foundational concepts to begin thinking about. The lesson was a lot of fun!
