Michele is a native of Philadelphia where she served on staff at the prestigious Academy of Vocal Arts. She moved to California as a Lecturer in Opera at UCLA and is now settled in the paradise known as San Diego. She started out as a singer and worked as a union chorister with Washington Opera. She also taught Piano- voice at the high school level at Georgetown Day School and also privately in the Washington DC area. She loves all levels of singers, from the most nervous beginner to those who need help to sing at school or church or just feel the thrill of getting up in front of family and friends to share their musical joy. She is also comfortable working at very high levels helping singers to prepare for important auditions at a professional level. Michele is happy working in any genre of music – a good technique works everywhere. As a pianist, she has played for multiple opera companies, auditions, recitals, and recordings and has had a successful career as a sought-after coach/accompanist. She is especially interested in beginner piano students, because of the excitement that comes with not only learning how to play the piano but also how to read music, the most beautiful language there is. Beginner piano students have a whole new world beckoning to them, so come on in – the water’s warm!!
