Overview

Natalie is a composer/lyricist, pianist, vocalist, and music educator born in Irving, TX and raised in Annapolis, MD. She has a Master of Music in music theory and composition from New York University, a Bachelor of Music in musical theater from the Catholic University of America, a certificate in vocal performance from the Peabody Preparatory, and is an alumnus of the famed BMI Lehmen Engel Musical Theater Workshop. She is also a pianist of twenty-four years, trained under a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory. In addition to music, Natalie has also studied child and adolescent development, psychology, and music education. She has been teaching music students of all ages privately and in classrooms since 2006 in music studios such as the Bergen Academy of Music and Art in Oradelle, NJ, Mobile Music Academy in Nashville, TN Corkran Middle School in Glenn Burnie, MD and Finger Power Music in Edgewater, NJ. She personalizes her instruction to fit the learning style of each student, focusing on technique, theory, and repertoire while making sure the student does not lose his or her love of music in the process.

As a composer, she has written for both the piano and the stage, most notably "Deployed" which premiered off-off Broadway at the Abingdon Theater Company in 2013. Her work was also featured in Musically Human’s Theater Showcase “Our Time: An Evening of Songs by the Next Generation of Broadway Songwriters.” Natalie has performed throughout the country as a vocalist at such venues as the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and the Duplex in New York City. She has served as rehearsal pianist for the New York Musical Theatre Festival, and accompanist and music director for "Tisch Twisted" at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts.

Natalie is currently a faculty member at the Bergen Academy of Music and Art in Oradell, NJ. Those residing in Bergen County who wish to study with Natalie should call (201) 940-2200.

It was my very first lesson and it was great! I actually learned a song already. She gave me some music to practice. I'm taking 30 minute classes but I think after this session of classes is over I'm going to upgrade my time.

Natalie L. Is a great instructor. I'm learning a lot about how to improve my technique as well as music theory and how to play songs with chords and melodies.

Natalie L. was wonderful to work with. She really helped me with sight reading and tempo (which I sorely needed). She also helped me build my audition repertoire and play with my voice to find new ways of singing. I highly recommend Natalie! She also plays the piano very well, which helps when you're learning new material.
