Teaching vocal technique is my passion. I love seeing voices develop. I have been teaching for 26 years now. In this time, I have developed the knowledge, ear, and confidence to tackle almost any vocal issue quickly and effectively. Most of my students see progress at their first lesson.

I enjoy seeing the confidence that grows in my students as they gain control of their instrument and begin to really sing from the heart!
Virgina is an amazing vocal coach full of so much knowledge and is very helpful and a pleasure to work with
Amazes me how much a simple warmup can change the way you sound completely! Virginia is an expert on vocalizing, right breathing and everything musically. Takes her time on helping you get things right as well!
At the first lesson, I take a few moments to assess the students voice to see what it sounds like, how they approach singing, and what it needs to sing with a healthy vocal production in their chosen style. Based on this assessment, we may do some vocal exercises to correct any issues, then we work on songs.

I never intended to be a teacher. I was a performer and student of voice for many years. It was my experience studying with several different teachers and years of frustration from ineffective techniques that I became interested in teaching. I found a technique that made sense, one that yielded results quickly and gave me a much better understanding of the vocal instrument and how to use it. I looked at all the money and years I spent on vocal training with little results and thought, "I can save singers time, money, and frustration with this technique".
I have worked with many different types of students of varied ages, levels and styles, beginners and professionals.
Recently my student, Macie, got the role of Maureen, in the JCC production of Rent.
