My professional life has been devoted to the in-depth study of bel canto, or beautiful, natural and expressive singing. I have sought to learn the traditions handed down over the centuries as well as a more modern physiological understanding of the voice. I am a lirico-spinto soprano, trained in the classic Italian method, an active performer and a teacher since 1987. My students, who have ranged from beginner to advanced, have gone on to opera and Broadway contracts, colleges and conservatories, contests and professional workshops, and perform throughout the US and Europe.

Please note that this website is still under construction. Soon I will be adding more pages, which will offer in-depth information on my teaching experience, style, method and studio. For an immediate consultation, or for more information, please e-mail me or call me at 856-858-6616. I look forward to hearing from you!
