Title: Teaching Artist (Vocal Instructor), Singer, Actor
Bio:

Hello! I am an actor, singer, and teacher in NYC. I was an adjunct faculty at NYU Steinhardt Vocal Performance program 2017-2019, am currently a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and New York Singing Teacher's Association (NYSTA). At NYU, I taught private voice lessons to NYU students for 2 years, from beginner to advanced singers. My goal is to find your "authentic" voice so that you can sing in a healthy and sustainable way across the genres. (classical, music theater, pop/rock, R&B/soul, country, etc.) I have developed a style of teaching that is efficient and flexible. I will cater my lessons to your needs!

I also studied voice science (vocology) through the NYU Voice Center under the SLPs and Laryngologists, so I understand how the vocal system works. I will provide explanations that make sense using anatomy and physiology!

My teaching style is “taller-made” for each student and his/her development. Since singing is a combination of technique and expression, and is very physical and emotional, I aim to help each of my students gain that balance of emotionality with technique. In my lessons, I specifically focus on:

*Unlocking voice and least amount of work to release “air flow” *Basic fundamentals (breath energy, resonance, and vault/space) *Physicality and acoustics (source, filter, balance, alignment, efficient placement) *Musicianship (accuracy, phrasing, reading scores) *Increase the range *Provide a toolbox to adjust their instrument *Making the voice flexible to let dimensions and colors come out *Truthful communication as a storyteller *Audition Coaching *Joy of singing! I am passionate about teaching and sharing what I have learned as an actor and singer. I want to let you make a new discovery about your voice and open up the world of possibility for the voice. Singing is an incredible way to grow confidence and positive even if it's merely a hobby or extra curricular activity!
