About this pro

As an educator, I am my students' advocate. Whether you want to sing opera, musical theatre, the blues (or anything in-between!), I promise to dedicate our lessons to cultivating your unique talents and exploring your artistic capacity in a student-centered environment. Because no two singers are alike, you deserve highly individualized learning catered to your sound, goals, and breadth of experiences!

 

In addition to vocal technique, I offer students a wide array of musicianship skills to help them feel confident and joyous. I firmly believe the key to success lies in healthy, informed singing! Please, let me know if you'd like to get in touch!

What I love about teaching is the opportunity to empower individuals and simultaneously build community. All my students are very dear to me, and I am always excited to discover their unique talents and musical capacities.

  • Anne Englebert

    Taylor is a difficult act to follow because he has a very particular energy- one that supports others so lovingly and is uniquely his.

  • Maya A.

    Taylor got me to enjoy singing with confidence, and that is what made the performance so fun in the end. When looking for a vocal teacher, you always want someone who will make you comfortable and be honest with you, Taylor is both of those things, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
