I'm interested in fostering a life-long love of music in my students, whether you're beginning your musical journey or you've developed your tastes! I believe in dynamic teaching that incorporates movement, freedom of expression and a student-centered approach that engages you with personally relevant repertoire .

I'm the founder and former director of the Sistema Side by Side Chorus at the Longy School of Music of Bard College, the former choral director at Youth and Family Enrichment Services Open Access to Music Education for Children in Hyde Park and a guest choral director in Lawrence Public Schools. I've received cutting edge vocal pedagogy instruction through the Longy School of Music and Boston Conservatory's Summer Vocal Institute. I have worked as a Teaching Artist with the Metropolitan Opera Guild's Urban Voices Program in schools and maintain both a home studio in Somerville and a voice and piano studio at LB Music School in Wakefield.

If you are interested in voice lessons at my home studio, please reach out!
