I am a Doctor of Musical Arts with 10 years of teaching experience. I teach classical vocal technique as well as musical theater style singing. I am an active performer with many regional credits in both opera and musical theater productions. I sing with the Chicago Symphony Chorus and the Grant Park Festival Chorus while maintaining a select private studio in my home and in downtown Chicago. I am a Teaching Artist at the Chicago High School for the Arts. Classes include Vocal Techniques, Opera Workshop, Music Theory and Music History. My students have attained superior and excellent scores at the CPS Vocal Music Festival, placed at the Finals of Chicago NATS competitions and I have helped several singers get into the esteemed Concert Choir at the Chicago Children's Choir. I work with all voice types beginning at age 13+ and am especially good at helping young voices learn to negotiate the tricks of the changing voice.
