"Joey is the best there is. No way around it. I came to Joey at the recommendation of a friend after the friend gushed about the progress they made in one lesson. And as his record goes, after one lesson, I was sold. I have worked on Broadway, National tours, and in film and Joey is the first person to honor the natural way I sing, not try and change it, but give me tools to find more freedom and confidence in my voice. Working with Joey reminds me just how much I love singing and that I can do it consistently, powerfully, freely, and with ease. He is a master at what he does and marries his knowledge of the voice and pedagogy with his love of teaching. He has made me believe in my voice again and given me the tools to sing just about anything. He is the best teacher, listener, and all around guy. I cannot recommend him enough. Working with Joey makes me feel unlimited."

Teaching Philosophy

Masterclass teaching photo.jpg

As a voice teacher, my philosophy centers on empowering singers to develop a sense of artistic autonomy over their instrument. I believe that the goal of voice training is to help each singer cultivate a deep understanding of their voice, allowing them to make informed artistic choices and confidently navigate their own unique path.


Developing a voice is a process that is equal parts mental and physical. My approach is evidence-based, goal-oriented, and individualized. I use strategies from voice science, voice and speech work, mind-body awareness, and motor learning to empower each singer's individual voice.


Every person has one voice capable of a wide range of sounds and styles. I believe in guiding each singer towards a vocal production that is flexible, dynamic, and resilient. My goal is to equip my students with technical facility and knowledge of their instrument, fostering artistic freedom and enabling them to become self-sustaining actors, vocalists, and artists throughout their careers.
