As a coach, Ruth provides her clients with an exceptionally rich, profound and life-changing musical and vocal experience and education that is deeply healing and inspiring. She does this by fusing her music conservatory education and classical music background with her extensive mind/body/spirit training and certification in yoga, holistic health, movement and artistic/personal recovery.
As a lifelong musician and performing artist, Ruth has shared a stage, taught and studied throughout the world with many top artists, musicians, singers and coaches in a wide variety of fields. She loves to learn and is committed to her own continuing education and expansion on all levels.
She is highly intuitive and works with each woman sensitively and compassionately. One of her unique abilities is creating a non-judgmental, relaxing and gentle learning environment that is also highly productive and grounded in vocal technique, musicianship and skill-building.
Ruth is gifted at helping women unplug from what and who they think they “should” be or how they “should” sound in order to discover their true artistic voice. She believes in her clients and shows them how to believe in themselves no matter how shy or inexperienced. She lives for the moments of authentic expression and beauty that clients experience when they break through fear and really SING.
The wide variety of experiences and expertise gathered in her own life are what ultimately make Ruth one of the most sought-after NYC vocal coach for women who genuinely long to open up their voices, explore, heal and ultimately share their true selves through music.
The consistent feedback from Ruth’s clients over the years is that it is her presence, listening, nurturing, caring, warmth, patience, humor, depth and extraordinarily high-level of musicianship and expertise that separates her from other voice coaches, catapults their growth and helps them create lasting success and fulfillment.
Ruth holds degrees and certification from Manhattan School of Music Prep Division, Boston University Tanglewood Institute, Aspen Music Festival, Mendocino Chamber Music Festival, Skidmore College, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Integral Yoga Institute-Yoga/Stress Management, Spirit in Motion-Creative Movement, Speech Level Singing Level 1, 2, 3 and has facilitated workshops at the NY Open Center, the Elizabeth Seton Women’s Center, Fordham University, and more.
