I am excited to have you as my student. Warwick, NY is my home and I enjoy servicing this community and the surrounding areas of Greenwood Lake, Monroe, Highland Mills, and Tuxedo. The Hudson Valley has a rich heritage and appreciation for the arts. I am so grateful to be here with you. I value my relationship with my students and I am going to work to ensure that the time and effort you put into our time together is fruitful.
I teach both the science and art of singing, as well as the passion to learn. During my past 20 years of teaching, I have discovered the exhilaration students obtain when they exceed their own expectations. I challenge each of my students to expand their vocal knowledge. I am continuously aware that I am developing your musical ear and that objective listening develops a solid foundation for singing. The relationship between a student and teacher is one of equal respect. I encourage each student to be inquisitive. I invite questions. To sing clearly and authentically, one must approach their practice honestly. My main job is to meet the student wherever they are and then carry them beyond their current boundaries.
I currently study–yes, study–with Aaron Hagan,
who has worked closely with the likes of Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor. I have recently completed the NY Singing Teacher’s Association Comparative Voice Pedagogy Intensive, attended summer programs at Eastman School of Music, and participated in countless workshops pertaining to vocal pedagogy.
