I have been singing since early childhood, and began tentatively writing music at the age of 15. Though shy, I decided to pursue music professionally, and enrolled at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I graduated with honors in 2007 with a Bachelors of Music in Jazz Performance and a minor in Music Education. While in college, I studied voice under Timothy Brent, Meg Mitchell (Clifton), Joanna Pascale and Justin Binek.
Following college, I shifted my focus to songwriting. I spent the next three years writing heavily, honing my vocal style, and performing often with friends and local musicians. In late 2011, I relocated to Southern California with my husband, and I am currently building a client base in the area.
My vocal style stems from solid technique, dedicated lyrical interpretation, and a fundamental understanding of the melody. I strongly believe that anyone with a musical ear can learn to use their voice as an instrument. My expertise lies in jazz, blues, contemporary rock/pop and musical theater, as well as learning to sing while playing another instrument. I am also available to teach classical voice for beginning to intermediate students.
In addition to traditional voice lessons, I am also available for songwriting consultations, which can be done as separate meetings or as part of the voice lesson.
