Hello! I'm Justin, a classically trained Baritone with an emphasis in operatic singing. I have earned my Bachelors degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point, where I have appeared in various operas, and performed many recitals. I am currently in the process of preparing my final recital for my Masters Degree in Opera Performance at the University of Minnesota. In addition to a semi-regular recital schedule in my undergraduate work, I have played the roles of Papageno in The Magic Flute, Marcello in La Boheme, Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd, Marco in Gianni Schicchi, and Demetrius in A Midsummer Night's Dream. I had the unique opportunity to work as a Studio Artist for the first two seasons of the Mill City Summer Opera. I am the Bass Section Leader at Central Presbyterian Church in St. Paul, MN.
As a composer, I have completed a wide variety of pieces, from full Orchestral works, to string quartets, from 12-part choral pieces to art songs. Most notable of my compositions is my Canticle No.1 for SATB chorus, which was marked for consideration at the UW-Stevens Point Choral Composition Competition.

My name is Arlys, and my vocal exploration began at age three singing solos at church. As a teenager, I performed with the concert choir and madrigal singers under the tutelage of Hal Wildung, a teacher who affected me so deeply with his love of classical choral music that it changed my life, although I wouldn’t realize it until much later. As a young artist, I wrote, sang and performed with numerous original rock, pop, funk & blues bands; simultaneously acting, singing, dancing or choreographing stage musicals.
Early on in my career I was lucky enough to get a private session with Jeannette LoVetri who first introduced me to Alexander Technique exercises that I use to this day. Then, through overwork & improper vocal techniques I destroyed my voice. With the help of professional classical vocal instructor Bonnie Faber, I began the long process of rebuilding my voice from the ground up. My blessed teacher encouraged me endlessly, showing interest in how my dance background influenced my training, my posture and understanding of the exercises presented.
Ms. Faber noted my passion and desire to comprehend and translate classical singing practices and more importantly how they applied to all styles of music. She encouraged me, in turn, to begin coaching others. To that end I wound up studying with her for 6 years.
In 2000, I moved to Los Angeles and continued diversifying my voice and my training as a voice coach working briefly with Kathryn Grimm and Darlene Koldenhoven, and eventually studying Italian bel canto techniques with Linda Mitchell, rediscovering my classical voice by singing opera arias for the first time, and with a new found coloratura soprano range. The voice is such an amazing instrument, and because of its personal nature it can also be the most challenging.
My teaching style is infused with the knowledge that students of voice must be treated with great care, love and encouragement. Between performing and my own artistic studies, I have been teaching privately for over 15 years, mostly via referrals from other students, and substituting for my voice teacher at Culver City and Santa Monica Music Schools. After 12 years in Los Angeles, I have relocated back to my hometown of Minneapolis to guide other explorers to free their voices.
