Why: We all have a desire to share an expressive experience with others. Maybe it’s going to a movie with someone. Maybe it’s sharing a meaningful meal with someone. Maybe it’s talking with someone about the difficulties of quarantine. Maybe it’s … singing. If you’ve ever wanted to use your voice to connect with others, let’s talk! Whether you want to sing on Broadway, for your best friend’s wedding, at a karaoke party, or just explore different ways in which you can explore your own sound, singing is always a beautiful way to share your “YOUniqueness.” My vocal studies started thirty years ago in classical voice. I studied with amazing teachers: Dr. EveAnn Eichhorn, Trish McCaffrey, Mark Oswald and David Dabbon. After singing professionally in opera, musical theater, R&B, gospel and pop, I’ve come to understand that a solid vocal technique is a top priority when singing any genre of music. With healthy technique as our foundation, we’ll explore range, sound, and interpretation of sung music, with a goal of connecting to the music and others through song!
Logistics: I teach Pop, Broadway-style, and opera (classical) voice on the Upper West Side of Manhattan on Tuesdays-Fridays with limited availability on Mondays and Saturdays. During quarantine, I am teaching through Zoom. Yes, it feels a bit strange to sing to your computer or phone screen, but it’s actually pretty fun, and I will give you some help to set up for your optimal lesson. As a former school music teacher (9 years!), I love keeping in touch with kids. So I don’t say it lightly when I say I enjoy teaching kids and adults! Lessons can be 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length. You can even take a voice lesson with a friend or three. What’s best for you?
Payment: I accept payment through Venmo, PayPal, or the Resonance app (specifically set up for music teachers!)
