I began singing when I was seven in a school choir. After that, I joined a boy choir in Florida that allowed me to travel all over the United States and Europe, exposing me to many different genres of music. When I entered college, I decided to start training as an opera singer. Since then, I have gained a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a Minor in Theater Arts from the University of Miami (FL) and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music. I have been fortunate to perform extensively and have become passionate about performing. Having recently graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Music, I am dedicated to building a studio in the Haddon Heights area.
*** Lesson Details ***
Learning to sing should be fun and exciting! It's a personal talent that I love and enjoy and am excited to share that with my students. I teach a classical technique focusing on breath, posture and a natural, healthy sound. From this technique, anyone can sing any genre of music healthily and for a long time. If you want to audition for some big part/company or if you just want to beat your friends in a karaoke competition I'll be happy to help! Piano students will be using technique books, and once a grasp of the fundamentals has been gained, the next step is to work on some basic repertoire of your choice. Learning technique is essential but of no use unless it's applied to music.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Private studio in a comfortable common area with great acoustics in my home. A keyboard, music, internet access and street parking are all available. I recommend recording lessons but it is not required.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard and some music. If you want to record your lessons I encourage it.
