Personal Statement

Originally from New York I began my affair with the arts while in elementary school and established the level of professional while still in high school. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre to further solidify my craft and took my career to the next level upon graduation as a performer. My experiences range from work in musical theatre, drama, film, television and commercials to recording and performing with renowned artists such as Barbra Streisand and Whitney Houston as well as the North Carolina and Durham Symphonies.

I have been successful in helping my students develop a myriad of skills including, but not limited to improved breath control, increased vocal range, correcting challenges associated with pitch, vocal placement and bridging the vocal break. Many have gone on to win titles in pageants and earn music scholarships to universities.

Instruction includes performance coaching and the development of musical interpretation through phrasing and dynamics. It is important to understand the anatomy of the vocal mechanism and the unique technique that I use assists the student in applying this knowledge, along with visual imagery, to produce the proper tone for the style and genre of musical interest.
