My Teaching Philosophy

For all of my students, I believe in a free sound which starts with correct body alignment through the Alexander Technique and incorporating the McClosky and Linklater relaxation exercises. The most complete thoracic-epigastric and abdominal breath management would be taught for a thorough muscular event.

For my classical singers, the Italian Chiaroscuro (clear/ dark) balance of sound is taught through a poised larynx; a greater feeling of back space with a frontal resonance.

For my contemporary commercial singers, actors and dancers, I teach all of the various styles from legit, to mix to belt which must be used in order to gain employment as a Broadway performer.

Since I have participated in two internships with speech pathologists in leading hospitals in the New York area, I also work therapeutically with students with vocal pathologies.
