Overview:
I'm a fun, motivated and passionate instructor.  I graduated from McGill University's Schulich School of Music in 2009 with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, with voice as my main instrument.  Since then I have been teaching and performing around New York at historic venues such as Birdland, The Plaza, Iridium, Bitter End, amongst others.  I have also recorded an album with Grammy nominated producer and arranger Rob Mounsey and perform with the world-famous Postmodern Jukebox.  I have taught a variety of genres, ages, and levels of students.  Through my performance, recording, and teaching experiences, I’ve acquired substantial knowledge to bestow on my students.  It’s a true gift to be able to share my love of music and to help my students reach their potential.  
EXPERIENCE
I have over 10 years of experience in my field and 5 years of teaching under my belt.  Growing up with my father as a music teacher and my Grandmother as a dance teacher, teaching came very naturally to me.  Having sung a variety of genres myself, I have always welcomed a wide variety of students.  I’ve taught many types of singers ranging from Jazz Vocalists to Rock, Country, Pop, etc. and as a result I’ve put together a method of teaching that can be applied to many styles of music.  I find teaching to be a very rewarding job and always welcome new students of all ages, levels, and genres.
METHODS USED
My method of teaching is centered around building technique and encouraging hard work, all whilst finding the inspiration within and keeping my students excited to learn.  In the first lesson, I have the student bring me a list of goals and then prepare future lessons individually tailored to their needs.  I teach vocal and breathing technique, repertoire and interpretation.  I also provide exercises that help tackle performance anxiety for those that need help with this common problem.  For my jazz students, I also offer the opportunity to learn improvisation and scatting. 
LESSON STYLE
I provide a comfortable, fun, inspirational environment for my students to hone their craft in.  Depending on the age and experience of the student, I will pace the lessons accordingly.  Creativity, thinking outside the box, and trying new things is always encouraged.  My studio is a place for learning, growing, and sharing the love of music.

Lisa is a wonderful and creative teacher. She helped me gain confidence in my singing ability and showed me techniques to help me improve the overall quality of my voice. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to improve and practice their singing.

She is patient and pushes my me out of my comfort zone and she also helps me discover new note I thought I could not hit

Lisa is a terrific teacher! She has brought out the unexpected in me using techniques designed to increase voice limitations, strength, control and quality. She recognizes the uniqueness of individual styles and enhances those talents. She makes you comfortable and relaxed all through.
