My studio is open to all ages and all levels. Experience is not necessarily a requirement to work with me, we all have to start somewhere, but commitment to the work and willingness to learn is what I am looking for.Because of my training as a singer-actor-dancer, I specialize in musical theatre, where my heart really is, and do tend to attract mostly the high school age group.I do offer:Private voice lessons for all ages, all levelsMusical theatre trainingPreparation for auditions and performancesPiano accompanimentWeekly lessons, single coachings and workshops/group classes “Sing A Song That’s Yours” is my motto, individuality is important to me. The way I see it, my work is not to tell my students what to do, but to guide them in their vocal journey where they’ll find the best way to express themselves; my work is to help them find their honest and creative "Self" and give them the tools to let it out!
