While Lindsay has been acting and performing in Los Angeles for the last 10 years, her first love is music. She began playing piano at the age of 7 and found a passion for the language of music early on. She continued playing piano, singing solo as well as in choirs (including a nationally-ranked Madrigal group), and performing in countless productions, concerts, and revues. She has studied many styles, from classical and opera to jazz, pop, and musical theater, and has been able to use these tools in her teaching. Through her love for music and performing, she found herself in a position to pursue acting in Los Angeles and has never looked back. She most recently produced and acted as musical director of Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins at the Lyric Hyperion Theater, and was able to teach a cast of 18 actors to sing Sondheim, which is no easy feat.

Lindsay has taught all ages, having been a substitute teacher at the Rockville Music Theater School in Maryland, teaching ages 6-18 in musical theater and voice, and has had her own voice studio in Los Angeles for the last 4 years. Through her training for the last 7 years at the Richard Lawson Studios, Lindsay has been able incorporate classical vocal training with aspects of storytelling and a connection to your point of view through the voice, which has resulted in more confident, well-rounded singers and performers. Lindsay works with students on an individual basis, tailoring lessons to fit the purpose and dreams of each artist, so that their training is working towards the bigger picture of their careers. She believes that finding your true voice is finding your power and everyone can be taught to sing in their own unique way because everyone has a point of view!
