More about me:
I'm a classically trained soprano, and I've performed in opera and recital throughout the eastern United States and Canada. Career highlights include performances of Arnold Schoenberg’s Erwartung and the title roles in Madama Butterfly and Tosca. I created the role of Gabrielle Martin in Paul Mathews’ opera Chatter & Static, and I've been featured in concerts of the Consortium of Vermont Composers. I've participated in summer festivals at Music Academy of the West and Tanglewood.

These days I perform recitals several times a year, but my primary focus is teaching singing. I maintain a busy private studio in New York City, and I have more than 15 years of experience teaching singing technique to professionals and amateurs who perform everything from opera to Persian classical music to death metal. I earned my BA in Music at Bennington College, MM degrees in both Voice and Clarinet Performance at Peabody Conservatory, and a DMus in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy at McGill University.

I've also been a Teaching Artist for Carnegie Hall for the past four years. I work in elementary, middle-school, and high-school classrooms teaching a variety of curricula developed by Carnegie.

Hey Claudia. Yeah I won a chair as a violist with Albany just a few months ago. I'll totally say hi to him for you, but it might be a while - we have a guest conductor for this month's concert, and the next time I'm slated to play with them is in January.

Hey Claudia, I just wanted to tell you that you are the reason I joined the Carnegie Exchange. I was looking for help online for diction in singing and one of your master class videos on here came up. I watched it, found it super helpful, started looking around the site and signed up! I did post a question in that discussion that I'd love your opinion on, if you get a chance. :)

Oh wow. Composition is one thing--I'm indeed in the midst of writing a song for a friend and I'm interested in knowing a professional's point of view about it. But my singing is where I'm most 'sensitive'--I feel like I don't have anything worth selling, though I've had some training. I have a small repertoire but I can't help second guessing myself constantly. I am willing to learn, however. Always.

Hi, Claudia. I will endeavor to encourage my students and others to participate here. This looks like a wonderful resource. Thank you for the welcome.

I sing too.

But I'm not a confident singer. May I please get to know her ?

It would be a pleasure.

The Metropolitan Opera's (New York) new Ring Cycle (Wagner) productions are all designed around an enormous, sophisticated and malleable mechanical set known as The Machine. You can see its exciting and versatile potential for yourself in the trailer Deutsche Grammophone produced for its DVDs of the four-opera set. 



It looks quite stunning in…
