Hello! I'm Justin, a classically trained Baritone with an emphasis in opera and art song. I have earned my Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point, and my Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Minnesota. In Stevens Point I sang the roles of Papageno in The Magic Flute, Marcello in La Boheme, Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd, and Marco in Gianni Schicchi. As part of the University of Minnesota Opera Theater I have covered Ford in Falstaff, and performed Demetrius in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. My recital appearances most recently include Robert Schumann’s Liederkreis Op. 24, Modest Mussorgsky’s Songs and Dances of Death, and multiple performances of Franz Schubert’s Die Winterreise in both Minnesota and Wisconsin. I have been a Studio Artist for the critically acclaimed Mill City Summer Opera for two consecutive seasons. My responsibilities as an SA include covering roles, singing in the chorus, participation in an opera scenes program, and leading a series of Opera Enrichment classes at the Lundstrum Center for Performing Arts. I am a member of the Minnesota Opera Chorus, this being my first season with the company. I am the Bass Section Leader at Central Presbyterian Church in St. Paul, MN.
Alongside my passion for singing, I am an avid composer. I have completed a wide variety of pieces, from full orchestral works to string quartets, from 12-part choral pieces to art songs. Notable compositions include: Joys and Woes, a song cycle for Soprano; Charlotte, a song cycle for Soprano; Canticle No.1 for SATB chorus, which was marked for consideration at the UW-Stevens Point Choral Composition Competition; and the in-progress work for ensemble and voice titled “Sketches”.
I have been teaching voice for 5 years now, and have taught students ages 7-70, so I know first hand that it is never too early or too late to start singing! I have prepared students for auditions, recitals, and for just plain fun. I teach with confidence so you can sing with confidence, and I have found that it works wonders.

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.

I began taking piano lessons on a whim in middle school, but it didn't take long before I realized I was completely in love with music. I enjoy playing and teaching many types of music, from classical to rock to hymns and church music. I learned to play by ear at the same time I learned to sight read, and both approaches have helped me to learn and enjoy the music I play.
I graduated in December 2010 with a BA in Music Performance from North Central University, here in the Twin Cities. I have been teaching piano lessons for the last 6 years, as well as directing a children's choir. Watching other people learn to play music is one of the greatest rewards I've received.

Drum, Music Performance, Music Recording, Percussion
I am a 28 year old drummer with 19 years of experience spanning all genre's and styles of music. Countless hours of stage performance with bands. A love, drive and passion for music and drumming you won't find in any other instructor! Multiple studio recordings both behind the mixing board and behind the drum set. 8 years of teaching experience, realizing the importance of setting a unique curriculum for each student tailored to fit each individual's goals and interests. I have been involved in bands ever since middle school, starting with rock, and moving on to perform in country bands, hip-hop performances, indie rock bands, and progressive rock bands. A strong knowledge of jazz techniques and music theory as well as the ability to read drum sheet music make me a perfect instructor for any student.
I have had many beginner and intermediate level student's and have become proficient in determining what skills each individual student needs to work on as well as helping students progress in their interests, keeping the lessons fun and the student motivated. I can easily transcribe any song as well! So any song you might want to learn, even if there is no sheet music, is totally doable. I love working in odd time signatures and I prefer fancy hi-hat work over heavy double-bass drum use. Progressive / Indie rock is my favorite genre of music to play, but I have tons of fun playing hip-hop, punk, metal, I dabble in jazz, Latin rhythms, and pretty much anything else. I'm always excited to play drums, and I pass this excitement on in my teachings.
