Private Voice and Yoga Studio

My main goals in teaching voice and yoga are to help you discover your authentic voice and to trust your body.  Using music, breath, relaxation, and movement, we will work together to help you listen to your own body's wisdom and to help you discover more strength, beauty, resilience, creativity, confidence, and joy - whether that is on a stage, a yoga mat, or in every day life.

I have taught private voice lessons for more than twenty years and have studied with vocal master teachers and coaches including Gerald Martin Moore, Keith Brautigam, Mark Oswald, Carol Vaness, Valerie Gonzalez, Martha Sheil, Dodi Protero, and Margaret Harshaw. I hold a Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Michigan and I love teaching opera, art song, Broadway, pop, and sacred music. 

I am also a certified
200-hour Kripalu yoga teacher (RYT 200), a member of Yoga Alliance, and a member of the Kripalu Yoga and Ayurveda Association.  The meaning of Kripalu is compassion and this is a very gentle style of yoga that encourages you to approach your body with great kindness and ease.

I currently welcome students over the age of 13 and offer the following courses of study:

  • Voice Lessons
    Breath support, bel canto vocal technique, song repertoire, music theory, sight singing, presentation, and audition/performance preparation.

  • Beginner Kripalu Yoga Lessons
    Basic yoga postures (asanas), alignment, specific modifications for your body, yogic breathing (pranayama), and relaxation.

  • Combined Voice and Kripalu Yoga Lessons
    See how yoga postures and relaxation exercises can transform your vocal technique and performance presentation.

  • Meditation / Relaxation / Mindfulness
    Breathing, meditation, focusing, grouding, relaxation, and visualization techniques for self-care and to help you prepare for auditions, performances, and daily life.

Please note: I have a 24-hour cancellation policy (with the exception of emergencies).

I teach out of my home in Long Island, NY, which is a 7-minute walk from the LIRR. From time to time, I may consider teaching in a studio in the NYC area, but there is a 1-hour minimum and an additional fee.
