Teaching since:
2014

I am an opera singer and private music instructor in New York City.

I cater my lessons to my students’ individual goals, firmly believing that a strong framework in classical technique can support any style of music. I love watching my students become passionate about music, achieve their goals, and reach their greatest potential as musicians. Using my experience and flexibility, I create a learning environment that is both engaging and fun.

I developed a passion for music at a young age and have been studying piano for 18 years. I received my BA in Language and Culture with a double minor in Vocal/Opera Performance and Italian, as well as my MA in Vocal Performance. While earning my MA, I coached voice, piano, and language diction to the undergraduate and masters students.

Since then, I have been actively singing in the city with various opera companies as well as doing concert work. I also teach piano and voice to students of all ages, both privately and at Trevor Day School.

Ross is a great teacher! I studied with him to improve my very basic piano skills and in about 3 months, under Ross' guidance, I was playing better than ever. He is a very clear, patient, and enthusiastic instructor, and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to learn or improve their piano skills.

I had so much fun in my lesson with Ross! He was so kind and really made me enjoy the learning process. He taught me how to focus my energy and breath into developing a consistent, beautiful sound. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their singing with a talented and supportive teacher!

Ross is a fantastic teacher who makes lessons clear and fun! I am a singer in a choir and wanted to hone my technique so I could sing solos. Ross personalizes my lessons based on where my voice is each week. He doesn’t just teach me how to sing, but also teaches me how to listen to my own voice by reviewing the recordings of our lessons in the moment. He has made me feel confident and he explains concepts clearly. I look forward to my continued work with Ross and highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their voice skills!

Ross is a patient, talented, and helpful instructor. Over the last few years, Ross coached me in speaking voice techniques as well as repertoire refinement for several arias. Ross provides a comfortable environment for learning and developing the natural voice. In addition to his knowledge of vocal pedagogy, His pianistic abilities enhance the musicality of lessons. I look forward to my continued studies with Ross as a voice teacher and vocal coach.

Ross is a superb teacher. His insights have fast tracked my progress. His passion and expertise make each lesson interesting and fun. As an adult student returning to piano after a long hiatus, this is not such an easy feat! I recommend him highly.
