There are few experiences in life more rewarding for me than overseeing a young singer’s progression from wide eyed freshman to confident young artist, poised on the edge of a professional career.

As a dedicated vocal coach and teacher, I strive to nurture each singer’s individual talent and instill a sense of ownership and pride. I attend to the details of the given: pitch, rhythm, diction, style, while provoking a vivid sense of creative play.

While I have expanded my skill set from keyboard to conducting and directing, my goal has remained the same: to empower the singer through a solid technique so that he/she will develop the tools and self assurance needed to fully express the text and music in compelling performance.
