About Lessons

I began a private studio in 2004. Since that time I have taught voice and beginning piano students in Boston, Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia from all over the world and of all ages. I have coached Opera choruses, rock bands, acapella groups, rap singers and children's choirs.

I work through the principle of joyful discipline; serious focused action infused with a sense of play. 

What will lessons consist of?

Voice: Adults and Children

  • Vocal Technique - Singing posture, the use of the breath, tonal focus, resonance
  • The art of practicing - Getting the most out of regular and fulfilling time with your instrument
  • Repertoire - Finding your voice's sweet spot

And because it is important to be a smart singer, not just a good one:

  • Sight singing and music theory
  • Care of the voice     

Piano: Beginning and Intermediate

  • Proper posture and position at the piano
  • Music reading and theory
  • The art of practicing - Getting the most out of regular and fulfilling time at the piano (that includes parents too)
