I believe that ANYONE can sing, and ANYONE can express themselves through music. After years of experience, both as an arts educator, and as a professional performer, I have come to develop specificity within my own technique that allows me to understand my voice muscularly, finding ways to sing any style, maintaining vocal health and without putting limitations on my voice. This personal clarity has changed me as a performer, but has fuelled my work as an educator. It is one of my greatest joys to provide students with the same discoveries and confidence in their singing.
Singing can be a very personal thing - an expression within oneself - so it’s my priority in lessons to provide a safe and fun space for learning. In my unique lessons, I give students the tools to confidently approach their singing and vocal performance with autonomy, honesty, personality and individuality. This approach has allowed me to adapt my lessons for students of all ages. While I am a passionate performer, my time working with others, sharing my passion and inspiring students in my vocal lessons has been my greatest joy. I’m excited to discover with you!
I have an MA in Musical Theatre Performance from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, one of the top conservatory programs in the world. Before that, i did my undergrad at Randolph College, here in Toronto, where I received my performance diploma in musical theatre. While studying at both of these programs, I trained my voice specifically in a multitude of styles, and have mastered classical, broadway, jazz and pop/rock vocal styles.
I have been studying performance and performing in general since I was 6 years old. I trained my voice with RCM certified teachers in high school, and performed in celebrated and award winning vocal jazz choir, the C Flats, winning multiple accolades including a Maestro Soloist Award through The Heritage Music Festival in Boston in 2012.
Since receiving my master’s in 2015, I have been working around the world, professionally as a performer, as a gigging jazz vocalist, actor-musician and musical theatre performer. My performance resume is extensive but I have performed in operettas, new musicals, broadway classics and jukebox shows, covering a variety of styles.
I have worked as an arts educator for over 10 years, teaching performance, leading musical theatre classes, glee clubs, assistant directing theatre, mentoring young performers, running private voice lessons, educating at camps, workshops and masterclasses. While I am primarily a voice teacher, performance is always an important element of my teaching, and I love to explore storytelling and personal connection to a piece. I also teach ukulele and beginner guitar, encouraging singers to self accompany and broaden their musical skills. I want to inspire students to share their stories, and I have experience assisting in the creation of students own original writing. I believe that theory elements are also important in musical education, and want to help students to familiarize themselves with rudimentary concepts, rhythm, intervals, ear training, reading music, musical terms, etc.
