I use clear language to help my students build a clearer understanding of their bodies and instruments so that they leave their lessons with the ability to apply what they have learned in their own practice. By providing a safe space to explore and learn, lessons become personalized experiences for the student in which to grow and have fun.

While my technique is based on classical tradition, I have taught students who choose to sing and play in many other genres including musical theatre, pop, folk, and rock. The technique we use in lessons is meant to strengthen the voice so that it can sing and play many types of music comfortably.

I am a multidisciplinary artist who practices powerlifting in my free time. My love and proficiency for this sport have led me to study elements of fitness and body mechanics that I use to enhance my teaching of voice and piano. My method combines traditional image based teaching with tactile based teaching so that each student has multiple strategies to reach their desired goal.
