Classical Vocal Technique (Bel canto method) Private Lessons

In our lessons, we work to strengthen and create flexibility in areas of the voice that need improvement. Vocal registration, breathing/support, vowel formation, postural alignment, and dynamic control are the major focus of the technical work. My teaching is rooted in the Bel Canto technique, and I incorporate other techniques such as Speech Level Singing (SLS), Alexander technique, yoga, and mindfulness practices. I believe in constant education as a teacher, and am always seeking ways to add value to my students.

Singing is a whole body & mind activity. I believe that in order to sing at our highest level, we must address all aspects of our instrument, which includes not only our voices, but our physical, energetic, and psychological state. It is impossible to train the voice separate from the whole, and with improved functioning of each area, voices flourish and expand.

Private voice lessons are a commitment to yourself and your goals. When you invest in yourself and your singing, other areas of your life improve symbiotically in response to the awareness you gain. As your technique and performance improve, possibilities expand for your life and career. I truly believe that by changing your voice, you can change your life!

As your teacher, I will support you on your path to vocal mastery by helping you build the necessary technical skills. I will help you remove old technical habits and thought processes that can block your progress. Often, I will guide you away from your comfort zone and challenge your beliefs about your own voice. This may involve making sounds that are "ugly" or difficult. It takes this kind of work to retrain the body's habitual patterns. I ask for an open mind and commitment to process. ​

It is an honor to take this vocal journey with you, and I so look forward to being your guide!

About Me

"I love helping my students grow and overcome vocal and mindset challenges.
Seeing them take their voices and careers to the next level is what I am passionate about."

I help singers realize their complete vocal potential through holistic and customized training of the voice, body and mind.

Along with my career as an opera singer, I have been teaching private voice for over 15 years, which I began while completing my Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance at Westminster Choir college. Afterwards, I completed my Graduate degree in Opera Performance at The University of Texas in Austin. ("Hook 'em Horns")

My students have received many honors including final selections for NBC's The Voice, Miss America pageants, classical voice competitions, and artistic scholarships for conservatories and universities.

Additionally, they regularly perform leading roles in Musical Theater and Opera, both in regional companies and educational institutions. They can be heard as solo artists or in bands throughout the USA, ranging from Pop to Rockabilly, on stages and with album releases.

As an opera singer, I have performed with companies such as Opera Orlando, Opera Naples, National Moravian-Silesian Theater, Annapolis Opera, Wichita Grand Opera, Gulfshore Opera, Little Opera Theatre of New York, and Tri-Cities Opera. Major roles include Marietta (Die tote Stadt), Madama Butterfly, Rosalinde (Die Fledermaus), Donna Elvira/Anna (Don Giovanni, Violetta (La Traviata), Fiordiligi (Cosí fan tutte), Susannah, Antonia (Les contes d'Hoffmann), and Suor Angelica.

I have won a few competitions, including The Jenny Lind Competition, Connecticut Concert Opera Competition, The Marcella Kochanska Sembrich Competition, and 5 Towns Music and Art Foundation Competition. Additionally, I was 2nd prize winner of the Kosciuszko Foundation Competition and the National Federation of Music Clubs Biennial Young Artist Awards, 3rd prize winner of the New Jersey State Opera Competition, as well as a grant recipient from CareerBridges Foundation.

I currently live in Bratislava, Slovakia with my fiance who is a Slovak conductor, and I miss my dog, Fifi, who is keeping my Dad company in Florida.

Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye

Singing lessons, healthy enjoyment! If you are singing, you can let go of everything else and that gives a wonderful feeling of relaxation
Your body is your instrument when singing. We try to make that instrument sound as beautiful as possible by working on sound formation. This allows the vocal cords to move more freely, so that you are less tired when singing. Your voice becomes fuller and you can sing higher and lower tones. During the singing lessons we are also engaged in articulation, the pronunciation of foreign languages ​​and also the meaning and feeling of a particular piece. Of course you decide for yourself what kind of music you are going to sing. Whether you only sing in the shower or that you are in a choir, for example, and you run into certain difficulties in general or in a particular piece? Then feel free to take your choral part to class and then we will see how we can make it easier for you. We work on repertoire that you love. We can also make a voyage of discovery together to your favorite music. WHO CAN SONG LEARNING? Everyone can learn to sing. Through the singing lessons you will notice that singing becomes easier. Moreover, singing is good for relaxation, both of body and mind. Singing is just enjoying! YOUR OWN INSTRUMENT As a singer or singer you already have one advantage over instrumentalists: you do not have to buy an (expensive) instrument. You always have your instrument with you, but ... you have to take good care of your instrument!

Lyrical, pop and folk singing lessons - Vocal Coaching
Discover, develop and maintain your voice! I offer singing lessons for all ages, from beginners to people wishing to join professional singing classes and in various styles of music, from opera to variety, including traditional song and pop music. I also practice vocal coaching for actors, teachers, lawyers ... or anyone else who wants it. My pedagogy develops first of all on the work of the body with exercises that are inspired by Qi-Qong, Yoga or even the martial arts that I have practiced for more than fifteen years. These are great ways to develop the muscles necessary for the proper functioning of the voice and breath. Then, the work of the voice is exercised with a multitude of simple vocalizations to speak and sing with the most ease and the least effort possible. This can be applied to any style of vocal music since the basis remains the same: voice and body. I have practiced lyric singing as a tenor for many years already. I started my studies in France at the National School of Music in Villeurbanne before finishing my training in Switzerland with the Swiss tenor Jörg Dürmuller. Today I have a master's degree in opera at the Haute Ecole des Arts in Bern. I regularly perform on stage at the opera or in concert, in Switzerland and abroad.
