Bulent G.

Somerville, MA

I am an active opera singer. I studied voice/opera at Istanbul University State Conservatory, Longy School of Music and Boston Conservatory (further info in my bio). I am offering singing lessons using a natural, easy-to-understand, experience-based holistic and scientific method. The aim is to freely express the natural and style-free voice, which can be consciously applied to any musical style from opera to jazz. Sing with ease, energized and flowing breath, solid technique, resonance, projection, diction, range and poise. No previous experience is necessary. Adults and children of all ages, voice types, backgrounds and levels from beginner to professional are welcome.

I taught singers from such diverse backgrounds as opera, musical theater, pop, soul, R&B, bluegrass, rock, heavy metal and public speaking. I taught voice at The Boston Conservatory, also at The Quincy Point Music Academy and A Street Music in Quincy, Massachusetts. I am a member of Boston Singers' Resource as ...

About Bulent

"When you think of opera, the word modern doesn't usually follow. Bulent G... is changing the way we think about this centuries-old art form. G. is anything but a stereotypical opera singer... He isn't merely an opera singer, but a well-rounded musician. He has performed Broadway pieces, jazz solos, spirituals, and even contemporary pop songs, which he says inform his interpretation of even the most classical roles in opera. This approach to opera may be what draws crowds who aren't as familiar with the genre... This opera singer, who says his favorite music ranges from that of the heavy metal
80s band Cacophony to jazz pianist Chick Corea, shows that opera singers may not be what you think, and his audiences are surprisingly diverse as well..."

- Chelsea Whyte, The Somerville News

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Described by The Times Herald-Record, New York, as a "firm bass- baritone", and by The Boston Musical Intelligencer as "outstanding dramatically and musically", I am a classical singer at home in diverse genres from opera to art song, Broadway to The American Songbook, spirituals to jazz and pop.

Recent highlights include the roles of The Master and Yefim in the U.S.-premiere of the opera "Desire to Sleep" by Moshe Shulman; the narrator in the world-premiere of "Experience" in English by Phivos-Angelos Kollias; world-premieres of "Missa Patri Pio" and "Canzoni Dantesche" by Leonardo Ciampa; the role of Jewish Man in the world-premiere of the opera "The Prioress's Tale" by Delvyn Case; The Omaggio al Bel Canto Best Interpretation Award at The Stelle dell'Anno Nuovo Festival in Boston, aired by Italy's RAI International TV; official recognition by The Massachusetts State Senate and Thomas Menino; a Bandwidth TV feature program aired on CCTV; and a performance as Emile de Becque with solos from "South Pacific" by Rodgers & Hammerstein at the historic USS Salem in the first-ever maritime festival of Quincy, Massachusetts.

VOICE / SINGING / SPEECH STUDIO INFO

I teach using a natural, easy-to-understand, experience-based holistic and scientific method. The aim is to freely express the natural and style-free voice, which can be consciously applied to any musical style with ease, energized and flowing breath, good technique, resonance, projection, diction, range and poise.

As testimony to the validity of my simple, direct and effective teaching approach, my voice studio included singers from such diverse backgrounds as opera, musical theater, pop, soul, R&B, bluegrass, rock, heavy metal and public speaking (see reviews).

No previous singing experience is necessary. Adults and children of all ages, voice types, backgrounds and levels from beginner to professional are welcome. Beginners are expected to practice at least 15 minutes a day.

My studio is in Somerville and is easily accessible by the T. Convenient and free parking.

“I studied with Bulent for 3 months this past summer. Bulent is a fantastic teacher and every single lesson I noticed a prominent increase in my vocal talents, including my range and my breathing. He helped me do exactly what I wanted with my voice and was able to emphasize how I should be practicing to work on certain parts of my voice. He was always very effective and excited about teaching and I had a lot of fun learning from him. I was really grateful to have Bulent as a teacher and if I had the chance I would learn from him again!”

"For the past three years my high school aged son has taken piano lessons from Bulent. In all that time he has been consistently patient, kind, enthusiastic and inspiring. Bulent used every minute to provide the best instruction, correction and encouragement. His love of music is evident as he often shared suggestions and links for video and live performances. I recommend him unreservedly! I have read some of the other positive reviews of Bulent and I can attest to the truthfulness of all of them - there is no exaggeration. Bulent is a remarkable human being and a wonderful teacher."

Ian Lewis P.

Cambridge, MA

About Ian Lewis

Hi! I am excited to work with students of all ages and levels, and I am here to help you unlock the treasury of our music together. I'm devoted to passing on the joy of music-making to performers of any age, whether you are passionate about musical theater, classical music, popular music, or just for the fun of making music.
As a soloist, I am a frequent performer throughout the Northeast. This season's performances include engagements with Lowell House Opera, Opera Brittenica, Cantata Singers, Opera Providence, and concerts and TV appearances with the award-winning folk music group Voice of
the Turtle, as well as numerous recitals. As a classical collaborative singer, I've performed in a choral setting with the New York Philharmonic, the Dresden Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and other ensembles. I have studied theater extensively and have completed an apprenticeship and internship at Connecticut Free Shakespeare.

I am a published composer and lyricist of children's music, and have over six years of studio teaching experience with students of all ages. I hold a Bachelors of Music in Voice Performance from Westminster Choir College and a Masters of Music in Voice and Vocal Pedagogy from Longy School of Music of Bard College. Whether you are just starting to sing in your school's musical or are an artist looking to solidify your technique and style, I have the latest techniques to make learning to sing fun and effective for you.

*** Lesson Details ***
The atmosphere in my studio is student-centered and informal, and is built around the student's goals and stylistic tastes and abilities. Whether it is your first voice lesson or you are a working professional, the curriculum will be formed completely around you as an individual artist want to achieve.

Within 6 months of study, you will have a firm basis in vocal technique in your chosen style, and a firm grasp of the repertoire that you love to sing. Most importantly, however, you will develop a love of music and singing that you will keep throughout your life. If you are a parent, I encourage your involvement, and you are most welcome to sit in on your child's lessons and share in the music-making experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full piano, music stand, private room, seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music stand and sheet music. A keyboard if you are without a piano.

*** Specialties ***
I have experience in performing and teaching musical theater, early music, opera, Mediterranean folk music, diction, music theory, and Shakespearean acting technique. I am currently a member of the Boston Schola Cantorum, and Voice of the Turtle, which has over 12 professional studio recordings.

Encouraging and Patient!

Ian is the most encouraging teacher I've hardly met. He is always ready to point out the improvements and in a sincere way. Even though I tend to repeat the mistake, he takes it as a natural learning process and gives time for myself to overcome it.

Besides, it usually takes me more effort to understand the terms/background of the pieces we work on since English is not my native language but Ian is able to translate into something I could understand.

I loved Jen!

Jen made me feel very comfortable. I was very shy at first; had never really sang in front of anyone, but she made it very easy for me. I got everything I wanted from the lessons, learning how to sing properly breathing right with the correct posture. I'm glad I went with her as my instructor. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Daniel R.

Somerville, MA

About Daniel

I love to sing, and I love to teach. Private lessons are a great place for both. Whether you're already passionate about music, or just dipping your feet in the water, I can personalize lessons to meet your needs. For me, seeing a student grow as a musician is a reward in itself. But the biggest rewards should be yours: a stronger voice, a deeper understanding of music, a whole body involved in making music, an enjoyable effort, and a growing independence to handle musical and technical difficulties over time.

My background:
I am an experienced tenor vocalist, with over 11 years of pri
vate vocal study, a BA in music from Williams College, and further study in vocal pedagogy (how to teach voice) with a Longy professor. I sing currently with the Cantata Singers, Labyrinth Choir, Stämbandet, MetroWest Choral Artists, Terpsichore, . I have taught voice on faculty at Camp Encore/Coda, music composition with Classroom Cantatas, and private voice lessons out of my home studio, currently in Somerville. I've also taught for 2 after school programs and 3 summer camps. I've studied piano, both classical and jazz, for a total of 15 years. I have studied a variety of musical topics at college, from theory and composition to singing and conducting, to music technology, recording and engineering. I've performed and directed in diverse styles ranging from early music to broadway musicals, jazz to classic rock, American to Swedish.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your voice is simultaneously the most natural, intuitive instrument we know, and among the most complex. Every person's voice is unique, so lessons are not about fitting your voice to some imagined ideal. Rather, lessons are an opportunity to learn how to utilize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, while maintaining your own unique sound.

You'll learn how to:
- Use your breath effectively to support your voice.
- Reduce tension, to keep your voice healthy and help your voice last longer.
- Make more sound with less muscle work, through resonance.
- Involve your whole body, to produce a fuller sound.
- Make good artistic choices, which reflect your own unique perspective.
...and much more, according to your goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio room with full weighted keyboard and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can reliably reach students 5 miles away, traveling by bike or public transit depending on the student's location.

I prefer students to have a piano or keyboard, though we can work without one if necessary. My keyboard is too bulky to be carried around for each lesson. If a keyboard is not available, we can work without one, and I will bring a tuning fork for starting pitches.

*** Specialties ***
I sing in a variety of styles, including classical, broadway, and jazz, both sacred and secular, from around the world. I have extensive knowledge of music theory, and 15 years experience as a pianist. Although I do not currently teach piano, my ability to accompany vocalists during lessons is very helpful for students.

Daniel R is absolutely a terrific instructor. He provides clear, concise instructions. His use of voice exercises are extremely helpful and if not correctly done, he changes them for comfort. He does reuse the exercises the next visit so you, the student, are eventually able to grasp them comfortably. His skillful playing is terrific also, when improvising music. He is highly knowledgeable and very helpful.

Classical Voice · Online
Emily was my voice student from her high school years through college (Plymouth State University). I am able to attest to her undergraduate training in classical voice and to her dedication to the art of singing. Her undergraduate course work included Voice Pedagogy (the art & science of teaching singing), Lyric Diction (Italian, French, German, English), and Voice Repertory. She performed in musicals and operetta at the undergraduate level, and then went on to graduate voice work at Florida State University, from which she earned a Master of Music degree in Voice Performance. Her experiences there included main-stage operas and opera outreach. Emily began teaching, because she loved to help other singers, when she was still in high school. She continued teaching while an undergraduate and also while at Florida State. She is highly qualified and has much to share with her students that will help them to grow as singers and also keep their voices healthy..

Singing · In studio
I am so glad to have taken lessons with Emily. I was really nervous to start singing lessons since I've never been proud of my voice. It was like singing in front of a good friend with her, although she still knew when to push me forward. After a few months with her my breathing greatly improved and I can hit notes I couldn't before! I'm no longer so scared to sing in front of people and I never thought I would say that. She also showed me how even little adjustments can make a big change, such as fixing my posture. In addition, I always felt comfortable going to her for all singing advice in between lessons.

Emily is a very knowledgeable and intelligent voice teacher. She was good at diagnosing problems with my vocal technique and appropriately flexible in seeking out methods for improving those problems. Singers of all voice types would definitely benefit from her instruction.
