After a few years in the classical realm, singing with symphony choirs et al, I transitioned into the professional theatre world, where I worked steadily for over a decade. In 2003, I discovered solo cabaret, my true artistic home, and have enjoyed an active performing life as a soloist ever since. [For more about my performance credentials, click here.]
Through it all, I've been a teacher. And, as I believe teachers should be, I have also been a constant student -- continually expanding my knowledge of all things voice, mastering different styles of singing, conquering the business and technical aspects of this career -- and sharing all I have with my students. To my 25 years of teaching and nearly 30 years as a professional performing artist, I bring with me degrees in music theory, vocal performance, and music production/recording engineering.
I work with students on the complete continuum, from functional to optimal -- everything from vocal technique and song interpretation, to creating your solo show or landing the part, through booking the gig and signing the contract. I love solving problems, sharing knowledge, connecting dots, and helping vocalists become the artists they want to be.
