I teach a mastery of vocal technique that enables a performer to achieve full vocal potential and self-expression.
That is the stated objective of my studio and, after 30 plus years of teaching in N.Y., Los Angeles and Germany, I continue to be passionate about this goal. In my studio singers will find supportive, effective, and inspiring instruction with unique solutions to pitch and breathing, which includes a little-known breathing technique used by many of the greatest singers in history, known as the Intercostal Method.
My career has included not only highly acclaimed performances in leading roles for international opera companies, but Broadway, film, the concert stage, and time spent as a singer/song writer as a protégée of Bachrach & David. My studio welcomes and embraces singers from all these vocal pursuits.
Singers in my studio have big, beautiful voices, with easy transitions from top to bottom and an emphasis on the “signature sound” that immediately identifies them. In addition, they are perfectly understood no matter the language in which they sing. My Italian for the stage was perfected with Alberta Masiello, late of the Met. My “Buehne Deutsch,” (Stage German), is that of a native. And lastly, all my singers can be easily understood when they sing in their native English, my specialty!
Professionals and beginners are all welcome.
