Overview

Since graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Business and Songwriting from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, I have been working professionally as a live touring, and studio recording vocalist for the last 15 years along-side artists such as Janet Jackson, Maroon 5, Christina Aguilera, Sting, Paula Cole, Brandy, Lindsay Lohan, Diana Ross, Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight and many more. I’ve also worked on Season’s 6, 7, and 9 of NBC’s The Voice as a background singer and am now very excited to share my years of experience as a working professional in the music business with you!
The teaching method I use is an effective, comprehensive non-classical approach for singers that offers an understanding of the voice and puts you in control. This approach was developed from the premise that the body has a natural voice production process and if you understand it you can sound the way you want without hurting yourself.
Based on similar principles an athlete uses to improve their skills, once you understand the way your body works you can warm up and train the needed muscles to perform well. A marathon runner would never compete without extensive training and proper warm-ups, yet singers - who are vocal athletes are too often quick to jump up on stage and perform without adequate preparation. If you try to use muscles that are not properly developed, you may hurt them and certainly won’t achieve the control and stamina you are capable of.
I’ll also provide the correct information about vocal anatomy in a way that does not require a biology degree to understand, while incorporating warm-ups, proper breath support along with vocal exercises that gradually develop your muscles so you can sing without tension while expanding range, power, volume, stamina and control.
