Working with singers on developing their vocal technique, repertoire, and performance skills is not a sideline for me. For over three decades, I've devoted my professional life to providing singers the support and guidance required for the challenging show business industry. My number one priority, now and always, has been vocal health. That’s one of the major reasons I received my college degree in speech and voice pathology.
As a vocal coach, music arranger, accompanist, conductor, and Music Director, I’ve been helping singers prepare their songs for performances on stage and at auditions. My studio is located in New York City, and I am available for private sessions by appointment, and also will arrange master classes for groups of students.
I recently began offering Sunday Private Intensives: 3-hours on a Sunday devoted to your special needs and performance preparation. For students coming in from out of town, preparing for a specific audition, or updating their repertoire, we can accomplish a lot in this relaxed, uninterrupted time period.
Planning to major in Musical Theatre in college? My students have been accepted to dozens of major Acting and Musical Theatre programs worldwide including: University of Michigan, Carnegie Mellon University, New York University Tisch School of the Arts, The Hartt School of Music, Fordham University, The Guildhall School, RADA, Urdang Academy, Wagner College, Boston University, Boston College, Boston Conservatory, USC, UCLA, Pace University, Marymount Manhattan College, and many others.
I'll also transpose or orchestrate your music, expand your repertoire, record your demo, or put together your cabaret show. I hope you’ll find the information in this website useful! If you’re a current client of mine, and would like to book an appointment online, please click here.
