From early in life, singing and playing instruments were always inspiring, connecting, and grounding activities for me. My love for music was always the light, and in the ninth grade, I decided that I was going to be a music teacher. In 2013, I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, following with a Master of Music in Vocal Performance (with a Teaching Artist Certificate) from the Longy School of Music of Bard College in the spring of 2015.

The connection and guidance that music provided me in my own life greatly informs my teaching methods and philosophy today. I incorporate an awareness based practice of singing, where we will explore how our bodies experience sound and create a mindful technique where we improve the efficiency of your instrument. Singing is like art and athletics fused, so exploring how singing feels is really important to the practice. The voice, like any other instrument, is just a mechanism, and once you understand the mechanism, you can manipulate it to make whatever sounds you want! I am a big believer in creating vocal “tools” for your toolbox, rather than showing you only one way to sing. We will start from the bottom up – connecting to the body, the breath, and then the voice. We will explore all sorts of vocal colors and shapes! I believe that music, particularly singing, is a healing experience for people, and through the lenses of yoga and mindfulness, I aim to create a safe environment for students to explore their instrument and their self expression. It is never too late to begin your musical journey! Please see my performance resume for more details regarding my experience.
