Based on correct vocal technique, I teach a healthy belt and mix for the appropriate sound for contemporary commercial music desired on Broadway today. I also teach how to switch to a more "classical" approach for the more "legit" music in traditional shows. We work on acting and staging as well as part of the lessons. We want to be singers who act rather than actors who sing.

Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.
