Hello, and thank you for your interest!

My name is Natalie, I am a teaching-artist originally from Sydney, Australia. I currently reside, perform and teach in the New York and greater New York area.

I am an award-winning singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and composer who has toured internationally and an experienced educator. In 2016 I graduated from The New England Conservatory of Music with a Masters in Jazz Voice Performance. I received my Bachelor of Music from Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Australia.

“A teaching artist, by definition, is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator. As a working artist is they are involved in an ongoing process of discovery, problem solving, discipline and refinement of skills in their discipline. As a working educator, it is essential that the artist is also developing a knowledge base and skills to be an effective partner in education. Achieving a meaningful balance between these two professions, whereby one feeds the other, is an ongoing process that requires a deepening awareness for the teaching artist of what their teaching brings to their art and what their art teaches them about learning.”

I pride myself in creating a fun and safe learning environment in which I establish a firm musical foundation for my students. Lessons include: vocal scales and etudes, lyric interpretation, stagecraft skills, repertoire development and a foundation of the technical elements of the voice or instrument, and exploration and development of timbre, genres and music history. I teach a large variety of musical genres including jazz, pop, rock, rn'b, theater, reggae and classical music.

Simultaneously, my students cultivate many other skills while learning voice. Students enhance their understanding of music genres, their overall self-confidence and become self-sufficient and creative problem solvers. I am passionate about educating and empowering my students and I enjoy connecting with a wide array of musicians of all ages, playing levels and backgrounds.

Feel free to contact me to inquire about lessons, I hope to hear from you soon!

Natalie has a great demeanor and is lots of fun. She's a great teacher and really helped me with sight reading and breathing.
