Voice Teacher :: Soprano


about me :: in detail

Some Specifics

As an experienced professional, I offer extensive and valuable training skills developed throughout my career.  I have worked as a choral conductor, voice instructor, general music teacher, concert coordinator/producer and professional singer.  I currently sing as cantor at 3 local churches.

Trained and experienced in contemporary teaching methods and techniques, I continue enhancing skills by sharing insights and methods via professional memberships and discussion boards.  I have developed and employed methodologies to motivate and engage singers.  I have worked with performers of all levels, ages and abilities, responding effectively to individual needs.  Further, I would bring to my job a valuable cultural and professional perspective, having worked and taught in Munich for a number of years and performed professionally in challenging and renowned environments such as the Bavarian State Opera, Alte Peter Church, and Emmaus Church.

As the founder of a non-profit organization, I developed and directed arts programs. This job encompassed positions of musical director, choreographer, producer, coordinator, lyricist, composer and writer.


I am committed to applying my training, skills, and experience in position teaching and  coaching students in vocal techniques and methods.  I aspire to continue directing, conducting, producing, and composing.  I would truly treasure the opportunity to do such in my own community, assisting individuals and groups to find inspiration through the pursuit of their creativity
