I have years of experience teaching singers of all levels and ages. Originally from the Bay Area,
I trained with Julliard trained professional opera singer Suzanne Darley from age 12. After graduating from college, I went on to study with her as a teaching apprentice, later on teaching her entire studio for a summer in her absence.
I received my BFA in Musical Theatre from Penn State, where I learned from Musical Theatre pedagogy thought- leader Mary Saunders- Barton, creator of the Bel Canto Can Belto curriculum. I am a certified voice teacher with the Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA), where I received vocal pedagogy training,
As an actor, I have performed around the world and the country in National Tours, on cruise ships, and in many regional theatres.
I specialize in virtually teaching students with classical backgrounds how to find their mix/belt, working with actors wanting to find their singing voice, and audition/performance preparation. My students have gone on to top training programs, professional careers, and most importantly, they leave my studio with confidence in their growth and skills as a singer and performer. I am also a vocal technician for Musicial Theatre College Auditions (MTCA).
