      TEACHING

As a singing actor, my first love is the stage! My second love is helping others find their joy in singing and performing. During my thirty-five years as a successful opera singer, I have performed with almost every major opera singer with the San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Metropolitan Opera in New York, and international venues. My greatest mentors and teachers are the great artists with whom I’ve had the privilege to perform. I have also been fortunate to work with some of the greatest operatic conductors of our time, from James Levine to Zubin Mehta and Seiji Ozawa.

My first tenet as a teacher is to approach each student with fresh ears and eyes. I recognize and honor the uniqueness that each artist possesses. My special area of expertise is to train and support large, operatic voices. Large voices are sometimes late to mature and need the right guidance to bring their special gifts to the stage. I am excited to be an asset to the impressive pool of talent here in the Twin Cities. I look forward to meeting you on your journey!
