I am a professional opera singer and am happy to answer questions about the business, including: music, opera plots, where to find musical scores, what you need to know if you want to be a singer, what life backstage is like, something about the technology used on stage now, costuming, who`s who in opera and in opera companies, the business of singing, how to get a good education in singing, what to look for in a voice teacher and where to find a reputable one, publications and other resources for professional singers and fans, how to get an agent, where to find singer websites and information online, where to get worldwide opera house schedules and reviews online. However, please do NOT ask me to act as a phone directory for you. :)


My greatest accomplishments are making a living at the art I love and helping young singers get their start. :),
