My aim as a voice teacher is to help you develop flexibility, freedom, and joy in singing. Drawing on tools from historical methods and contemporary voice science research, I can help you find ways to improve your resonance and breath management, the clarity of your diction, and your awareness of tension so that you can more smoothly access your full range and sound your best. I’m available for private voice lessons in midtown Manhattan. I also coach singers and instrumentalists on vocal repertoire from medieval to contemporary. Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a trial lesson.
