Originally from New York, I began my affair with the arts while in elementary school and established the level of professional while still in high school. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater to further solidify my craft and took my career to the next level upon graduation as a performer. My experiences range from work in musical theater, drama, film, television and commercials to recording and performing with renowned artists such as Barbra Streisand and the late Whitney Houston as well as the North Carolina and Durham Symphonies.
I have been successful in helping my students develop a myriad of skills including, but not limited to improved breath control, increased vocal range, correcting challenges associated with pitch, vocal placement to accommodate various genres of music and bridging the vocal break. Many have gone on to win titles in pageants, earn music scholarships to universities and perform with Broadway caliber artists on the North Carolina Theater stage.
Instruction includes performance coaching and the development of musical interpretation through phrasing and dynamics. It is important to understand the anatomy of the vocal mechanism and the unique technique that I use assists the student in applying this knowledge, along with visual imagery, to produce the proper tone for the style and genre of musical interest.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE: I provide instruction primarily to intermediate, advanced and professional level students during one-hour sessions, however, I will also work with beginners that are mature, focused, dedicated and serious about their craft and who are willing to work hard. I am also flexible in providing 30 minute sessions for the right student, should that be preferred or necessary for any reason(s). I personally make that suggestion for younger students, who are unable to focus for longer periods of time. Currently, I have no evening time slots available, but a few afternoon spots, Monday through Thursday are still open for interested and qualified students.
It is also important to note that I do not instruct through the use of piano accompaniment. I use a variety of audio tracks to instruct, which provides a very up close and personal approach; allowing me to better critique, demonstrate and guide the student through the learning process more effectively than traditional methods.
If you prefer, you may also request a one-time, one-hour consultation ($75.00) to help determine your skill level for VPS instruction and to determine a satisfactory rapport with me as your instructor. Please, DO NOT fill out the registration form until you have READ and AGREED to the outlined 'policy' stipulations in terms of time and financial commitment.
