Hello! I'm so glad you've found your way to my teaching page. My private studio in Manhattan (and via Zoom!) welcomes students of all skill levels beginning at age 12 and specializes in jazz singing, contemporary voice, songwriting and artistic development.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Music and Jazz Vocal Performance from the University of Miami's Frost School of Music, and have completed Levels I, II and III of Somatic Voicework™ training (The LoVetri Method). Somatic Voicework™ is a body-based, functional method of vocal pedagogy informed and supported by voice science. I love SVW so much because it makes voice science and technical instruction tangible and easy to understand. Instead of, "find the buzzing sound in your forehead and let it flow like a waterfall out of your nose..." a SVW instruction might sound like, "at a soft, 3/10 volume, sing these four notes on an 'e' vowel with your lips in a wide, bright smile shape." With vocal health at the forefront, the SVW approach integrates physical awareness, stylistic accuracy, vocal freedom and the individuality of every vocal artist. It is applicable to all styles of singing!
