Bio

Sophie has 24 years of experience in the professional care of the voice field. She has been working with singers of the international scene as well as beginners in many cities. After training as an Orthophoniste in Lyon (France) under the celebrated Guy Cornut and his team, she practiced in Paris for 11 years, at her own private practice as well as at Elizabeth Fresnel’s Laboratoire de la Voix, along with collaborating with other leading laryngologists of Paris and Lyon as well as with le Choeur de l’Opéra de Paris et l’Atelier Lyrique de l’Opéra de Paris. She established her New York practice in 2008. Her clients include performers at l’Opéra de Paris, Salle Pleyel (Paris), the Berlin Philharmonic, Le Théâtre de la Monnaie (Brussels), the Gran Teatre del Liceu (Barcelone), the Theater an der Wien, the Opera City Concert Hall and the Hakuju Hall (Tokyo), the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Opera, the Carnegie Hall, the Avery Fisher Hall, the Vivian Beaumont Theater, at Santa Fe Opera House, at the Glimmerglass Opera Festival, at the Opera Faber Festival (Portugal), and in jazz festivals and clubs (Nagoya Blue Note, Japan…) throughout the world.
Her clients have also included students from the Manhattan School of Music, the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program at the Metropolitan Opera and from Poly Prep High School in Brooklyn. A singer herself, in France with le Choeur de l’Orchestre de Paris and in New York with the Dessoff Choirs, as well as an acting student (The Barrow Group), Sophie treats the entire artist — singing voice and speaking voice, performer and person — because all aspects are part of the instrument. Combining several approaches for a safe learning environment, she efficiently works with the specific needs of each individual client. She tailors her vocal approach in order to maximize positive results. She also helps singers with French diction.
