I am an organized and flexible teacher who likes to focus on the short term and long term growth of each student. I focus on well rounded rounded knowledge of music to promote an informed execution full of vibrancy and understanding. I graduated from Westminster Choir College with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. I have performed in 7 countries with internationally recognized groups and traditional venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Vienna State Opera, and Broadway.

I have been teaching and coaching for 6 years in various studios and homes in New Jersey, Pennsylvania , and New York. I have worked with all age groups, but I do have more experience working with kids aged 6-18. I like to focus on healthy singing that is suitable for every distinct age group, along with methods to help with growth and transition. I also specialize in dramatic work and audition practice for those who are working professionally or preparing for a career in music. However, I also emphasize life long learning for those who are passionate hobby singers. My experience in piano instruction is focused on healthy technique that won't strain the developing performer. I also specialize in Music History, Ear Training, and Music Theory as tools to create a well rounded understanding and eventual performance.

My goal with every student is to inspire imagination and creativity through curiosity. I like to ask questions about interpretation which can only be answered through informed opinions. These questions lead to a very personal and unique interpretation of music that allow each student to create their own performance. I provide several methods of inspection that guide students through curiosity to reach their own conclusions. It is the unique performance that captures the hearts of listeners and singers alike, and I have found that magic occurs only after guided investigation.
