I am a professional musician that specializes in both voice and piano instruction. I caught the music theater bug pretty young and never looked back! I am one of those people who never stops learning (can you say bookworm?) I have earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education and a Master’s degree in Vocal Performance. My favorite things to sing range from extremely mushy opera arias to scatting some jazz. I used to play accordion and sing in a folk band that played at popular Chicago venues and recorded a Daytrotter series... but that's a story for another day.
Each person's musical journey is extremely unique and personal, just like my own. I value getting to know my students and offering individualized instruction that meets their musical goals as well as helps them become versatile musicians. If you are interested in strengthening your vocal ability, learning about vocal health or growing your piano skill-set to assist your vocal growth, you have come to the right place!
Perhaps you have an audition coming up and need to run your piece with an accompanist. I offer vocal coaching for the whole person... breathe through those nerves, take an artistic risk, polish that foreign language, stay grounded, stay resilient, but more importantly be YOU!
When not "music-ing" I like to spend my time with my son, Ezra, explore new recipes alongside my fellow foodie husband, Austin and love on my two black Labradors, Jersey and Layla.
