ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING BY MAKING ART?

There’s no escaping this truth: SINGING IS A DIFFICULT BUSINESS. You’ve been living in different hotel rooms for the last 10 months, you haven’t seen your voice teacher recently, you've been going from production to production jumping all over the operatic repertoire from Mozart to Berg and you’ve got your first Gilda (or Aida, or Carmen, or Count) starting in 3 weeks. Or worse, you’re the lead role in a world premiere, and you can barely figure out how to decipher your role, let alone how to sing it beautifully.

If you are a student or young artist, singing is no easier. SINGING WELL CAN SEEM ELUSIVE AND MYSTERIOUS; unlike playing a musical instrument, there are no keys you can press, frets you can see or strings you can feel. Of course you cannot hear your own voice the way your audience does, and you’re scared because the sounds people tell you are the best sound ugly to you in your head. Even when you sing familiar repertoire or audition arias, you still worry about whether the quality of your performances will propel you to the next stage of your career.

As an experienced and respected vocal coach, I CAN BE PART OF YOUR MANAGEMENT TEAM – helping you to navigate learning new repertoire or to perfect your favorite roles while coping with the vagabond life of an artist.

I can guide you into repertoire that makes you more marketable as a classical singer. Together, we can craft performances that naturally lead to improved confidence in any situation.
