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.

How to Make a Great Demo Recording

 What do you find compelling about the audio and video vocal performances you most admire? What do you find distasteful in the ones you don’t care for? How can your preferences inform the creation of your own recordings? The purpose of this post is to help you present yourself in the best possible light through your media, so please to share your recordings with us and let us help you fine-tune your materials.Most vocal performance degree and Young Artist program applications require the submission of an audio or video demo. Your demo is the most important component of your application. Screening panels will usually evaluate your singing and artistry before even looking at your résumé and letters of recommendation, and an outstanding recorded performance may score you a live audition even if your other materials do not yet attest to much training or performance experience. Some programs, such as The Song…See More

"Okay, that gives me some ideas. Keep in mind that the process of seeking choral work and the process of seeking solo work are distinct. You may use the same basic résumé for both purposes, but the way you would go about contacting…"

Ms. Friedlander

Thank you so much for showing me how to join. Forgive my ignorance, but what do I do from here? Do I download me singing? or do I take a trip to meet and be part of the Voice Studio?

Hi, Claudia! Thank you very much. As of right now, I do not compose choral music. However, this could change in the future. The piano music I compose is very much inspired by the choral setting. Many of the chord voicings I use, as well as the harmonic and melodic lines, are influenced by the way the music would be set up for a group of singers. I've spent a lot of time performing with a chorus and taking private classical voice lessons. Singing isn't my first talent, but the repertoire definitely helps my composition.

Hello. Thank you for greeting me. How do I share? I started a Youtube Channel so if you let me know I can share the link possibly.

The music program is still going good at Doherty. We actually just had our spring musical, we performed "Guys and Dolls", and i was a dancer and singer.

Opera: A Balance of Vocalism, Drama & Spectacle

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…
