Personal Statement

Singing is a freeing discipline. I use bel canto techniques, with body/breath awareness through the use of musical theater songs, Italian, French, German, Spanish and English art songs and arias. You may record your lessons for practice at home, either with a cassette tape or bring your own recording device. I can play piano, or you can bring your own accompanist.
