Teaching since:
April 2010

I studied vocal performance at The University of Maryland, College Park and moved to NYC shortly after graduating in 2010. I've opened for AJR (Warner Brothers) and performed at CMJ, SXSW, and several colleges via NACA. I recently signed multiple sync license deals (E!, Netflix, Bravo, Discovery, Oxygen, A&E), and my music is currently spinning on radio stations nationwide (including local station, WARY Valhalla, NY).

Lessons should be a safe place to vocally experiment and become comfortable with your own instrument. We will learn technique so that singing is a freeing experience and so that your instrument is never jeopardized. We will work on breathing, supporting, and learning repertoire of your choice!

Learn how to sing the music you love!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full size weighted Casio keyboard and music stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a portable mini keyboard and music stand to bring to and from lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained singer, but as a performer I specialize in contemporary music. I feel that a classical foundation can be essential in strengthening vocal technique and preventing injury to the voice. Still, I am passionate about working on the genre of music chosen by the student!
