Mezzo-soprano

  • Learn how to sing beautifully, with ease and grace
  • Develop a commanding stage presence
  • Discover and express your full artistic power


I also work with people who use their speaking voices in any profession: teachers, lawyers, professors and anyone who feels that their voice is tired after speaking. 


MASTERCLASSES
I give masterclasses for young professional singers and advanced vocal students.


VOICE COACHING FOR CHORUSES
I work with choirs, to improve tone, range and diction.


EDUCATION & OUTREACH
I work with children & schools to promote music and creativity.

I work with students of all ages, from 1st grade to professional musicians. I can speak to non-music students to get them engaged and excited about music. Classes with music students will get a more detailed and complex explanation of the repertoire, as we talk about the historic context as well as the theoretical origins of the musical elements. All students are encouraged to participate in Eurythmic-Style exercises, where we play with rhythms, expression, and improvisation through movement.
