Voice & Alexander Technique Studio
YOUR BEST VOICE
I help students of all ages and experience levels learn to sing, build confidence and consistency as a performer, and develop a greater ease of personal expression. My expertise is in musical theater and contemporary, commercial music styles. Work will be grounded in physicality and mindfulness, and supported by the latest in voice science research.
YOUR HEALTHIEST BODY
Is your body holding you back? The Alexander Technique blends body awareness and simple movement procedures with a mindfulness practice to improve coordination and address the habits, distractions, and chronic discomforts interfering with your every-day activities. In its essence, this work will teach you how to live a more present and conscious life.

I've been doing lately in the studio
I work with multiple singing techniques and genres of music to address each of my student’s individual goals. Our lessons will be challenging, rewarding and fun. Together, we’ll work on sound quality, range and agility, pitch precision, healthy belting, building confidence, stylistic choices, and personall expression.
Our lessons will have three broad areas of focus:
Discovering a unique and personal sound through playful vocal exploration.
Influences: Chuck Jones, Arthur Lessac and Roy Hart.
Developing concrete skills like range and agility with classic singing exercises.
Influences: bel canto and musical theater singing techniques
Understanding how thinking and physicality play a necessary role in vocalization.
Influences: the Alexander Technique, psychophysical education, and acting training.
I also incorporate performance coaching, acting coaching and audition preparation when appropriate. For more information, take a look at my blog or send me an email

Our work together was invaluable. Thank you, Danielle, with all my love and gratitude.
Broadway aspiring and professional actors
The majority of my voice students are New York actors, on- and off-Broadway. All my theater students work on belt, mix and legit singing and learn how to make stylistic choices that will work in auditions. Lessons will include audition preparation and coaching, choosing repertoire and performance coaching.
Your voice, an instrument for expression
Actors, teachers, lecturers, and anyone else speaking to an audience regularly can develop a richer, more expressive speaking voice that does service to their text and that they are proud to hear on recordings. We'll tackle issues with nasality, projection and fatigue. Performers will access a greater range of possibilities when making acting choices and take on singing roles with confidence.
Not a singer? Not a problem.
Trust me: Not all singers are born with it. Together, we’ll calm those nerves and develop a strong voice you can count on. Think you’re tone deaf? There’s hope for you yet! With practice, you’ll take on karaoke with confidence and form that band you’ve always dreamt of.
Alexander Technique for Singers
How can it help?
Sing longer phrases with volume and consistency by addressing foundational issues of breath support and coordination.
Tension affects the quality of your tone and limits range and breath capacity. Alexander Technique addresses the root of tension and sets the voice free.
This mindfulness practice will calm and quiet a hyperactive nervous system, improving chronic anxiety and reducing performance jitters.
Your body is intrinsic to your art. If you're struggling to deliver your best performance because of physical limitations, Alexander Technique can help. That's why the best conservatories globally incorporate this work in their curriculum.
A full day in the recording studio and gigs every night. Your voice and body will have the stamina to make it through to your finale.
