I'm a professional singer/teacher residing in New York City with degrees from Indiana State University School of Music, and New York University with a specialization in Classical Art Song, Musical Theatre Repertoire, and Vocal Pedagogy. Every lesson is about YOU. So each week we will take a look at your goals for the lesson, whether you are preparing for college auditions, school talents shows, a desire to work with music theory, or piano skills, this is your opportunity to explore. Everything is possible. As a professional singer myself, I am constantly auditioning on broadway, off-broadway, and for smaller local and regional theater opportunities. I believe that as a teacher I have to continue to be in the field and learning as the industry continues to change. I have to be aware of the opportunities in this business. I have been hired by professional opera and musical theatre companies, in additional to large choral works as a soloist, and have a private studio in Washington Heights. Prior to NYC I taught middle school choir for 200+ students, of which I received teacher of the year in 2012. I also still hold a valid teaching license in the state of Indiana. ONLINE LESSONS: Due to the current nature of our society and the influence of CoVid-19 my studio is only currently teaching lessons online until further notice. STUDIO CANCELLATION POLICY: Because of the nature of singing, and how important consistency is, having lessons regularly is incredibly important. Additionally, due to the nature of lesson times being reserved in my schedule, it is always courtesy to keep scheduled lessons as much as possible. - Planned absences (such as vacations, religious events, holidays, school functions, etc) are eligible for rescheduling or cancellation if given at least two weeks notice in writing (text or email communication) - Unforeseen events (emergencies, sudden illness, etc) totally happen. In the case of such an event, please contact me as soon as possible, preferably within 24 hours so I can possibly give that time to another student. Lessons canceled with less than 24 hours will not be rescheduled and will be marked as "missed" with a charge.

Shelley is an amazing voice coach! I have learned so much from her and have seen a marked improvement in my singing since the start of our lessons together a year ago! She is super knowledgeable and offers so many different techniques and approaches that help you learn and grow as a singer! I have grown more confident in my singing abilities and my ability to express myself through my voice in general! Not to mention, Shelley is just an overall amazing human being who I feel so grateful to have met in general! Cannot highly recommend more!!
