Welcome to Your

Singing Future

I'm a Mezzo-Soprano with a background uniquely fitted for Northern Virginia students. I've enjoyed time as a professional soloist as well as singing with the Washington Chorus (Grammy Award 1999). With a decade as a junior and senior high chorus teacher, years as substitute in Fairfax and Loudoun counties, I have a strong background in classroom choral education.

Because of my high expectations for vocal excellence, I've adjudicated Solo and Choral events, worked vocal master classes, and guest conducted for All-District events. With an MA in Film/Television, an award-winning novel, my work with Main Street Theater, and as Songbirds Director, I can incorporate storytelling into performances and help students in their musical theatre pursuits. Many of my students are performing professionally locally or in NYC. Now that my two daughters are studying at UVA, I have more time to teach and invest into the lives of my other kids --those students in my studio!
