<p>I lived in Amsterdam for many years after receiving my MA in Voice and Voice Pedagogy, performing throughout Europe with a wide range of ensembles. Conductors include Harnoncourt, Herreweghe, McGegan, Steve Reich and Reinbert de Leeuw. I speak 5 languages and sing in 5 more. I teach a solid vocal technique including breath management, register and vowel equalization, reducing and removing unnecessary tension. Each lesson includes both technical and interpretive work and I value the student's contributions to the learning process. I play piano sufficiently, although my professional students sometimes bring their own accompanist to a lesson. I generally do not take beginners, however will make an exception when intrigued. I also receive referrals from laryngologists of singers and professional voice users suffering from voice disorders. I regularly present at international voice conferences.</p>
