All singing lessons and classes are taught in a supportive,
creative and playful environment. My approach to vocal training
and the art of singing is based on physical and cognitive awareness
as well as on a strong foundation of musical and vocal technique.
My goal is to guide you toward achieving your goals, to find
joy and creative expression and to integrate healthy singing
techniques that free your true singing voice.
- Develop tone, pitch, breath control, intonation, emphasis,
volume, posture, relaxation and general voice quality.
- Gain awareness of the physical tensions and habits that
are hindering your style and develop your physical, emotional
and technical capacity to sing freely.
- Enhance your enjoyment and confidence of singing and unleash
Typical singing lessons include voice warm-up and preparation
exercises and includes focused "observe and describe"
awareness and technical games combined with singing from song
selections of your choice. Time spent in each portion will
depend on what aspect of vocal performance is being worked on,
and on the amount of work you invest outside of, and prior to,
the lessons. The voice lessons are flexible and interactive
and can also include practical coaching and working through
of songs and exercises and the development of awareness patterns
and performance skills required to get you to your next level.
Each voice lesson is individually tailored to your musical
development, singing style, and current vocal awareness and
needs. The typical objectives are to uncover, release and develop
your unique singing voice and to develop and refine awareness
skills, vocal techniques and performance skills that you can
take away with you and apply to a lifetime of healthy, productive
and enjoyable singing.
Lesson repertoire explores the skills, techniques and awareness
required for healthy classical, opera or musical theater styles
My voice studio is located in West Los Angeles, near I-10,
and centrally located between Beverly Hills, West Hollywood
and Culver City. I currently teach singing out of my home/studio.
I have taught singing for over 8 years and during that time
have guided many individuals to sing better, sing healthier
and to reach toward their singing goals. My students have won
local singing competitions, been cast in various lead and supporting
roles, and been accepted at prestigious colleges. Most of all,
they sing healthy and enjoy their voice. Much of the instruction,
and direct student progress, is through one on one private voice
instruction and individual attention, I only occasionally instruct
group classes or specific singing workshops as my time permits.

Selecting a private teacher and choosing to pursue private
voice lessons are an important investment in your continuing
vocal development and your decision should be rewarded. It is
important to evaluate your teacher to see if they are a match
for your personality, the stage you are at, and that they can
help you progress towards achieving your goals.
If you're a singer looking for a new voice teacher, a vocal
coach, need specific work on technique or you need to prepare
for an audition, performance or singing competition, or are
new to singing and would like to learn to sing, I invite you
to try out my voice studio by signing up for an introductory
voice lesson. I usually have a waitlist to enter my studio but
I can accept a limited number of new voice students on a space
If you're not in West Los Angeles or the LA area, and I'm unable
to refer you to another Los
Angeles singing teacher, here are some music teacher search
sites that might help you narrow your search: Music
Singer and The
Music Teachers List. Additionally, another way to find a
voice teacher is to ask for a recommendation from someone whose
singing you like.
NATS (the National Association of Teachers of Singing) also
has a telephone teacher locator service which can give you a
list of registered voice teachers near you.
