As a singer, I have been performing in diverse musical spaces over the past 10 years - I have had the joy of singing everything from Musical Theatre, Jazz, Opera, Pop/Contemporary vocal music and much more. Holding a Bachelors in Voice from Lawrence University, Appleton WI and a Masters in Voice and Opera from McGill University Montreal, QC, I bring my over 18 years of voice study and performance experience in classical voice to my students here on Outschool. Some highlights of my singing work include: -Performing major roles in over 15+ fully staged Operas and Musical Theatre productions -Recording voice samples for major up and coming new to Broadway musicals -Presenting numerous solo concerts of diverse material ranging from Jazz to Cabaret to Classical Song -Singing in regional tours bringing music to local venues, schools and more -Performing children's opera outreach work, interacting with, singing for, and educating classes on what it means to perform and sing as a career -Maintained a large studio of voice students of diverse ages, musical interests and backgrounds
