Additional Info:

Hello! With extensive experience as a Music Director and coach for music theatre, opera, & instrumental settings, I bring high quality work to any setting with a collaborative spirit. Currently, I'm a freelance coach and audition pianist for music theatre performers as well as opera singers, familiar with the standard aria & MT repertoire. I'm also on faculty at the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Division and Montclair State University, serving as a vocal coach & studio pianist.

Equally at home in classical and contemporary styles, I've performed in venues ranging from the Lincoln Center's Clark Studio Theatre to the Duplex Piano Bar & famed cabaret nightclub 54 Below. Recently I had the pleasure of collaborating with Norm Lewis debuting a new song by Jeff Blumenkrantz for the board of Lincoln Center. Earlier this year, I coached internationally renowned Deborah Voigt in her debut of the title role in The Merry Widow.
