I am a graduate of The Brooklyn, New York Conservatory Of Music. I have a Bachelor Of
Science Degree in Voice Technique and Performance and a Masters Degree in Voice and
After graduating from The Conservatory Of Music, I proceeded to study (for 6 years) with the
renowned Vocal Artist, Marni Nixon.
Because of my love and passion for singing and performing, I have dedicated my life to teaching
others how to find their own beautiful voices… unique to them.
My goal is to provide you, as my student, with a solid vocal technique...
.the technique of Bel Canto Singing (Beautiful Singing)...
focusing on Voice Control, Voice Placement and Breath Support.
Our lessons will teach you to visualize a solid column of air, starting from your Diaphragm, and
extending up to your throat, atop which your voice is perched.
Throughout my life, I have performed in countless Musical Theatre Productions in New York,
California, Hawaii and Las Vegas, Nevada….
including 7 years of performing on The Las Vegas Strip as a featured Soprano at The Venetian
and Paris Las Vegas Hotels.
For the last 20 years I have been performing with The Nevada Opera Theatre as well.
Singing is my Passion…
It is my mission to help you find your passion for this beautiful art form and to realize your own
potential as a Singer
