I am a New York City-based transgender opera singer, musicologist, and vocal instructor who has performance and study experience throughout the United States, Germany, and France. I have received several national and international scholarships and fellowships to support my performance and research. I meticulously documented my own vocal transition and now use that experience and previous training to help teach other TGNC singers. I am finishing a Ph.D. in Musicology at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City, have master’s degrees in vocal performance and music history, and teach music history and theory at Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music. I am currently writing a vocal method for transgender singers and developing community music courses in order to reach people outside of academia at an affordable rate. I strongly believe that music education should be available to everyone, and I work diligently to make that happen, particularly within the transgender community.
From my own personal and academic experiences, I study diverse learning needs and incorporate them into my own teaching in the studio and classroom. I regularly present workshops to faculty and other educators on how to be aware of and meet the needs of all learners. I will work with you in whatever styles maximize your progress and am honored to advocate for you with other professionals in your life through education and direct communication. If you are a professional and would like to know more about how to meet diverse learning needs, contact me for resources and training.
