I decided I wanted to be a teacher in the first grade, and discovered my love of music when I joined choir in high school. I went on to get my bachelor’s degree in Music Education and Vocal Performance from Oakland University, and my master’s degree from Manhattan School of Music. Since 2005, I have been teaching private voice lessons, hosting vocal masterclasses and workshops, adjudicating competitions, and working as an opera singer in both New York City and Metro Detroit. Singing is a uniquely vulnerable instrument, and I place the utmost importance on creating a warm, comfortable space for students to make mistakes, explore, and express themselves. Singing and music will be the main topic in our weekly lessons, but students will gain far more than just learning to sing. It’s about supporting each student and their dreams, and caring about the entire person.
