ABOUT

I am a trained alto singer. I started singing in show choirs and musical theatre productions. I studied voice, singing, acting and dancing at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC. In my early 30s I was a lead singer in a small professional jazz band singing standards from the 20s-50s. This is where I found my sound and passion. I got away from singing and focused on art teaching for 10 years. I am looking for a big band 40s style or a small jazz ensemble to be their lead singer for local gigs occasionally.
