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 ...
"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 ...
I have been teaching voice for 4 years. My approach to vocal technique emphasizes proper breath control, body alignment, and vocal placement in order to maximize the potential of each voice. Lessons take a kinesthetic approach to these techniques, which allows the singer to "feel" how the body and voice need to be positioned for their most efficient sound. My students have successfully auditioned for universities, recorded various projects, and performed lead roles in productions at the Kimmel Center, Media Theater, and Bristol Riverside Theatre.
*** Travel Equipment *** Students should be able to provide a piano/keyboard *** Specialties *** I have performed in a large variety of vocal genres from rock to opera and am comfortable teaching all ages, levels, and styles. In my lessons I focus on proper breath support, and vocal placement within the mouth and nasal cavity. As a result of my classical training, my basic style of teaching is steeped in the bel canto aesthetic. However, I believe in and use kinesthetic techniques to help students more easily discover this proper approach.
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 ...
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 private 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, ...
