Let's put more music in your life!
My life's work is about digging deep into myself to mine the experiences I've had and then bringing those experiences, those truths to a song. I love the process of discovery. And I love the joy of communicating through music.
And I really love sharing what I've learned with other students and singers.
In addition to directing cabaret shows, my work as a teacher in New York and around the country includes private coaching, workshops and master classes in the art of performance and song interpretation. Together with Eric Comstock, our workshop, SING THE TRUTH, has enriched the lives and music of hundreds of vocalists. We've worked with the Musical Theatre department at University of Michigan, conducting master classes with the seniors. We've also worked with the Michael Feinstein Songbook Initiative in Los Angeles, coaching and judging gifted high school students. In St. Louis, we joined forces with pianist/arranger Rick Jensen and Broadway star Jason Graae in teaching a week-long intensive called The St. Louis Cabaret Conference. A particlularly rewarding experience was teaching an eight-week course in the American Songbook at Sanford Meisner's legendary acting conservatory The Neighborhood Playhouse. While headlining at the Provincetown Cabaret Festival, we taught a master class in SING THE TRUTH. And in Baltimore, we headline at the elegant supper club Germano's, and teach a master class for singers of all levels.
I do believe you become a more powerful person if you have music in your life. And definitely happier! Whether you're a professional singer looking to put a show together, or someone who just loves to sing, there are strengths to be found and insights to be gained.
I'd love to hear from you and I'll help you find the music inside your soul!
