My specialty is in classical voice technique, whether that be for opera or art song. My formal training encompasses over 13 years.
*** Lesson Details *** NOTE: I prefer to teach students ages 11 & up.

Classical voice lessons may not be for everyone, however, and we will learn repertoire that suits the interests of each student. I ...
Opera is my career path and personal passion. I love teaching opera singers and opera enthusiasts or beginners. Please contact me to begin studying operatic style and singing.
Dear Students and Parents: My passion for performing and teaching brought me to TakeLessons as a way to enrich the Baltimore community (and beyond through Skype lessons!) and help individual students perform at their best.

My other skills, like instrumental instruction, studying skills, accent reduction, and academic preparation are all offered through TakeLessons as well. As a teacher, I love having fun in lessons and building strong connections with my students at absolutely any level. My personal musical performing experiences span opera, musical theater, jazz, pop, and R&B. I am so excited to share my knowledge and ...
