Teaching & Vocal Coaching

Teaching & Vocal Coaching

        I have been teaching privately and coaching voices for over 25 years in the Central Massachusetts area in addition to serving on adjunct faculty/staff at Clark University and Assumption College. My students from around New England have been accepted to and have enrolled in undergraduate and graduate music programs at the University of Connecticut, Eastman School of Music, Oberlin College, University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, The New England Conservatory, Catholic University of America, Temple University, The Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, Arizona State University School of Music, Emerson College, Belmont University, University of Minnesota, The Schulich School of Music at McGill University, The Boston Conservatory, Roosevelt University, Westminster Choir College, Plymouth State University, Harvard University, Manhattan School of Music, The Hartt School, University of Alabama, Carnegie Mellon University-College of Fine Arts, the School for the Arts at SUNY Purchase, The Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam, Boston University, St. Olaf College, Ithaca College of Music, University of Massachusetts (Amherst), The Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, Rhode Island College, University of Tennessee, The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, Columbia College Chicago, and the American Musical & Dramatic Academy in NYC. Summer programs for students have included Oberlin in Italy, V.O.I.C.Experience (Orlando & Tampa, Florida), The Tanglewood Institute, Total Interpretation Project (Tito Capobianco Opera Studio), Cannon Music Camp (Appalachian State University), Savannah Voice Festival, Boston Conservatory Summer Youth Vocal-Choral Intensive, SUNY Purchase Vocal Intensive, Syracuse University Acting & Musical Theater Program, The Hanover Theatre Summer Youth Program, Westminster Choir College Solo Vocal Intensive, and Boston University Summer Theatre Institute.

        Many of my students have performed leading roles with regional opera companies as well as with professional, community, and college theatre production companies across the U.S., in addition to high school and youth theatre programs. Several students continue to participate in critically-acclaimed professional choruses such as the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, New York Choral Society, and Concora, as well as semi-professional choruses, community and church choirs, and have been guest soloists with regional orchestras. High school-aged students have been accepted to and performed with the All-Eastern Choral Ensembles, Massachusetts and Rhode Island All-State Festival Choruses, ACDA Chorus, The New England Conservatory Youth Chorale, The New England Conservatory Youth Camerata Chorus, the Central Massachusetts District Senior & Junior Festival Choruses, the Worcester Children's Chorus, and the Händel & Haydn Society's Young Women's Chorus. Students have successfully represented our studio at regional and national level vocal competitions including the annual NYSSMA conference. Vocal master classes, workshops, and performance opportunities are available to my students annually.
