I've been teaching voice and performance since 2012 with a dedication to continuing my education and own vocal growth throughout the years. But where did it all start?
A global citizen at heart, my work has found its way around the world. I was born and raised in Basel, Switzerland, where my musical and dance training began in 1994. Following the Broadway dream and returning to my father's hometown, I moved to New York City. My love for academia brought me to Brandeis University where I completed my B.A. in Peace, Conflict and Coexistence Studies with a focus on the Applied Performing Arts in 2013. During this time, I had the opportunity to work in Ghana, New York, Boston, Israel, Palestine, and Switzerland.
In 2014, I packed my bags and followed the mountain call to Colorado. I have since graduated with an M.A. in Applied and Education in Theatre from the University of Colorado Boulder. During this time, I steadily built my voice studio to keep spreading the joy of singing - a human right for us all. At the same time, I also served as the Community Coordinator at the Music District followed by my role as the Program Lead at Whippoorwill Arts, Inc.
Since 2017, I also proudly play bass in the band Robert Shredford. Catch us at our next show in 2023!
I combine methods of cutting-edge vocal pedagogy across genres, somatic practice, and trauma-informed approaches. With music and theatre as my primary tools, my goal is to provide access to a playground and skills for individuals to nurture self-empowerment, creative self-expression, and build community. I am always looking to hold space for voices to be heard.
My commitment to
Racial Justice, Equity, & Belonging
Creating spaces of belonging for diverse people has always been significant to me. I formalized my efforts through my undergraduate studies and quickly recognized my positionality and privilege as a white, queer, Jewish woman with two countries to call home. Ever since, I have trained to serve in any capacity championing Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, including workshop facilitation and volunteering with community groups such as the BIPOC Alliance in Fort Collins.
Daily, I commit to continue to learn, sit in discomfort, and work to be in good relations with my community. I also recognize I make mistakes - I invite feedback when I get it wrong. All of this permeates my practice, including how I teach and coach. This is a safe space and these values will always be maintained.
