I have taught voice for over 32 years and have worked with every level of student – from beginner to most advanced. The private lesson allows for the most personalized experience which allows you to reach your goals at your own pace.
Voice Lessons for Every Goal
For High School Students:
Perhaps you are preparing for solo competition and need to learn the perfect song or you have decided that you want to be a music major in college and you’ve got college auditions coming up. Perhaps you are featured in the musical and need to work on your role or you have never taken lessons before but really enjoy singing in the choir and you want to work on your skills. Voice lessons are what you need!
We will work on the fundamentals of singing – breath, focus, support, consistency in tone, diction. We will sing a variety of music and styles from classical to musical theatre.
For Opera Young Artists:
Voice Lessons: refine your technique and choose repertoire that shows off your voice at this stage in your career
Audition Preparation: hone in on your five aria package technically, musically and dramatically
Role Preparation: if you have been hired to sing a role or you want to study a role, we will work on every aspect of it – music, language, technique, drama, research
For Musical Theatre Performers:
Voice Lessons: refine your technique, find a healthy way to belt, developing the mix
Audition Preparation: fill your portfolio with 16 to 32 bar cuttings and songs that fill every need for various auditions
Perhaps you aren’t on the professional track but you have always wanted to sing or you sang in college and want to get back into it. Learn the fundamentals of technique, sing a variety of repertoire, and learn how to truly communicate a song.

Makeup lessons/Cancellation Policy
Should you need to cancel a lesson for any reason, I need 24 hours notice. You can text me (914-523-2718) or email me. If I don’t get the proper notice, no matter what the reason for the cancellation, no makeup lesson will be offered and there are no refunds. If I do get the proper notice, we will schedule a makeup lesson at our mutual convenience. I do not follow the school calendar so if school is out of session, don’t assume that you won’t have a lesson that day. If you need to reschedule for a school holiday, let me know 24 hours in advance. Regardless of how many cancellations with the proper notice, only TWO makeups will be given per semester.
