I grew up between Melbourne, Australia and Hamilton Heights, New York City in a nurturing neighborhood of creatives, many of whom are still my instructors and mentors to this day. At the age of 15, I attended the highly acclaimed Kaufman Center Special Music School and studied composition. I continued my love for music at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, specializing in Songwriting and Film Production at the Tisch School of the Arts. I’ve had the privilege to perform at music venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Bitter End, and am currently exploring the underground NYC music scene (Berlin Under A, The Delancey and amongst others). When I am not tutoring, I am working on my next song, and performing with my band.


I have taught vocal and songwriting to a broad range of musicians. My job is to celebrate their own original sound and work together to elevate their vocal and performance ability through repetition, dedication, and mindful practice. I’ve worked closely with my students on audition material, specialized school applications, solo repertoire, stage performance and mic technique. In my classroom (virtual or in person), I strive to create a welcoming and nurturing environment, which fosters growth and love for the student’s craft. I believe the sky’s the limit, no matter what level or age!


As an active musician and recent graduate, I find that creating a routine and working towards a goal is key. I apply this method to my students’ lessons. It’s important to familiarize myself with their authentic sound, recognize habits, while maintaining the health of their vocal journey. My curriculum explores a variety of music, analyzing form and breaking down line to line, rhythm, and melody. Further, my students and I dive into technicalities of breath work, dictation, and increasing vocal range. I look forward to meeting you!
