I have received a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theater, and Dance where I studied voice performance. I began teaching private lessons while still an undergraduate, in 2006. My experience as a singer informs my pedagogy and I am able to guide my students through the technical challenges of learning to sing with their full voice without pushing using tools developed by master teachers Richard Miller and Stephen Smith as well as tools that have helped me in my singing. I perform regularly in the Hudson Valley, at the Aspen Summer Music Festival, and as a professional soloist and chorister with ensembles across the United States.
