"My voice teaching philosophy emphasizes knowledge of the vocal instrument, so that students may eventually self-teach. Correct singing technique transcends style, as any musical style can be learned with proper vocal technique. I train classically, and happily embrace and train contemporary musical theatre technique, including belting. I enjoy coaching music theatre, opera, and lieder, and have excellent accompanying skills".
"My vocal studio is primarily in New York, but I am in Texas (Dallas/Austin area), very frequently. I also teach via SKYPE."
