Passionately devoted to helping students succeed in the arts and related academic subjects, I believe learning can be exciting, challenging and fun.
Since 1990, I've taught students from ages 8 years old to 70 years old, in America and overseas. Students benefit from my experience working in different cultures and schools, holistic teaching methods and sensitivity to each student's unique personality.
I was on the voice faculty of the Levinksy Teacher's College, Tel Aviv, Israel, Barry University, Miami, and at the New World School of the Arts (both High School and College Divisions), Miami, Florida.
I hold a Master's degree in Opera Stage direction, and a Bachelor's degree in Opera, Voice Performance from the Indiana University School of Music in Bloomington, Indiana, and have performed internationally with major opera companies. As as Jewish music expert, I've served several congregations as soloist and teacher.
To prepare for my former career as an international opera soloist and stage director, I took courses in a variety of musical and non-musical subjects. I also developed a deep knowledge of European history, English language arts, and other subjects.
As a free-lance classical music journalist with over 100 articles, review and interviews with prestigious Los Angeles music organizations for a global magazine, I know what it means to write original yet informative articles.
As a voice and singing specialist with over 18+ years of international teaching experience, I've prepared elementary, middle school, high school, and college students for musicals, choir solos, voice auditions, talent shows, opera productions, choirs, bat/bat mitzvahs, voice competitions and more.
For public speaking, I've coached adult speakers for business presentations and international conferences and other speaking engagements. I've also helped singers and speakers re-condition and resolve on-going vocal problems.
After a short time training with my holistic methods, many students experience a rapid and dramatic improvement in the way they sing or speak, performing better than ever.
