Bio: My diverse studio comprises high school and college-age students, professional singers, actors and dancers as well as adult avocational singers. My teaching is a fusion of many influences, including classical and commercial music singing techniques, yoga and other body work, dance, acting and speech training. I am certified in Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method which is functional training that draws on current voice science and features a body-based approach tailored to the needs and abilities of each individual, with the goal of healthy, free and stylistically appropriate singing. Attention is paid to posture/alignment, register balance, diction, resonance, and breathing as well as performance aspects including interpretation and style. Besides my private studio, I teach at NYU Tisch, at the Westminster College of the Arts in NJ and at the Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus. In 2012 I was invited to join the faculty of the summer CCM Vocal Pedagogy Institute at Shenandoah University. I have also taught at NYU Steinhardt as well as the Open Center in New York.
Memberships include Actors Equity Association and NYSTA (New York Singing Teachers Association) in addition to NATS. I am a recipient of the Distinguished Voice Professional Certificate from NYSTA and hold a Master of Music degree in vocal performance from NYU Steinhardt.
