I have been teaching voice for over 25 years and musical theatre for about 20 years .  I teach a healthy, Italianate technique and welcome students interested in all styles of vocal music, classical to pop & rock (CCM).  I specialize in working with musical theatre performers.  I also have experience as a recording session coach for vocalists in the studio, as well as a vocal consultant for numerous theatre companies.  

As a Musical Theatre teacher, I specialize in song analysis, audition preparation, musical theatre history and vocal styles.  My students have appeared on Broadway, national and international tours, prominent regional theaters, etc.  

I am available for private lessons, Skype lessons and studio consultations.
