Welcome to my website
Here you’ll have the opportunity to learn about my work as a singer, pianist, and visual artist.
I present a brief history of cabaret music – with its satire and political courage – as well as some tips for vocal care and singing.
Additionally, you can listen to clips of some songs from my CD Cabaret Sauvignon, make purchases of music and art, and contact me for information about performances. I also offer private piano and singing lessons to aspiring performers looking to find and harness their voice.
I consider song to be one of the most evocative of human expressions. For example, the image of a mother singing lullabies to her baby to soothe. Alternatively, of laborers, soldiers or prisoners pouring out rhythmic call and response chants in order to find strength to endure. Of slaves creating songs to claim their humanity denied them by their masters. And of course, you and I singing to bring pleasure and beauty…
And isn’t visual art that music for our eyes?
The only thing better than singing is more singing. – Ella Fitzgerald
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness. – Maya Angelou
If music be the food of love, play on. – Twelfth Night, Shakespeare
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream. – Vincent Van Gogh
