THE MUSIC SALON™ provides an audience and community of fellow creative artists who enjoy coming together in a supportive space to make music! We welcome musicians of any instrument or genre (as well as poets, screenwriters and actors), but are particularly supportive of the needs of professional singers.  Come to make music and enjoy the company of other creative artists.

I began the Salon twelve years ago because I wanted to provide a place for performers to perform for each other in a relaxed setting that promotes creativity. Also, as I mention at the start of every Salon, I want to provide a place for community, something that is often difficult to find in the performing world.

We always have a terrific, highly-skilled and experienced accompanist assisting us, one who can sight read anything you choose to bring, who knows how to support singers, and who is aligned with the purpose of THE MUSIC SALON™. We meet on the Upper West Side of Manhattan every first Sunday of the month (except when it falls on a holiday, when we do it the following Sunday). The Music Salon is open to professional singers and instrumentalists of any genre; poets and lyricists are welcome to read their work, as well.

It’s fine to run audition pieces when you’re getting ready for a big audition, and it’s equally fine to experiment with pieces you’re not sure about or that are a departure from your usual genre or style.  The group is not open to the public or to spectators in order to maintain a safe and comfortable space for the creative artists. If you are interested in joining us, or know of someone who might be, you are warmly invited to let me know by emailing me.

A large part of the business for singers and other musicians is auditioning and competing. That is exactly the kind of performance experience that squelches creativity and encourages us to perform in ways that are expected or that are designed solely to impress, rather than allowing the creative impulse from deep within to infuse the performance with life—and infusing a performance with life is essential to moving the audience and to becoming a great artist. I create a safe and transformative space for you to make the creative artist more available to you in performance. This offers you a chance to experience relating to the audience in a different way, and you just might find this spills over into your professional work.

Most months THE MUSIC SALON provides a performance opportunity. Several months during the year, the Salon offers workshops or master classes that serve and engage us as creative artists, offering information, experience, healing or insight in the space of our musical community. Come join us, and have a great time singing and networking!
