I have a B.A. in literature and Creative Writing and have written several plays that have been produced in New York. I am also a songwriter. My songs have been played on radio and on the internet around the world. I have worked with both adults in children teaching writing and English both privately and in the school system. I also have a certificate to teach ESL. I enjoy working with people and gain great satisfaction in seeing them develop their skills in their area of interest.
In the performing arts, I have been a singer, actor and voice teacher for over twenty- five years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, vocal technique through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and prodigy of Method Master Strasberg, Marcia Haufrecht. I have acted in many Off Broadways shows and sung around the world. I believe we all have something distinctive that can be developed and expressed through the voice. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique sound. I give them the tools to gain ability and confidence in achieving their goals.
I empathize deeply with the challenges the student faces both in studying voice and performing since I have been a professional singer for many years. Through my personal experience in the field I will coach the student through the obstacles they may come up against. My students have gone on to become recording artists, to perform on Broadway, in National Tours; in cabarets, concerts, on radio and TV.
