I have a simple, no-nonsense approach to vocal training, helping students build the vocal strength and coordination necessary to sing efficiently, using principles and exercises learned through over a decade of intensive vocal study in NYC.

Please be advised that I expect students to learn their music on their own (although I'll certainly give you some learning strategies, help with tricky passages, etc.). If you are looking for someone to "teach you the notes," I'm probably not who you're looking for. But, if you want to learn how to sing well and are willing to put in the work, I'd love to help you achieve your goals!

About Ted

My name is Ted D. and I have been teaching private lessons in both guitar and voice for over a decade. I began playing guitar at age eleven and continued into college, where I majored in guitar performance. While in college I began studying voice seriously, adding a vocal performance major to my de

I am currently an undergraduate at Indiana University studying with Jeff Nelsen and Dale Clevenger. I've taken lessons with some of the top teachers and performers in my field and have performed diverse repertoire throughout my time in high school and college. I'm equally as interested in shaping the learner as I am the skill, so that the student learns faster, more efficiently, and more enthusiastically. I believe in a student lead, teacher guided approach to maximize the student's self learning as well as to enhance and solidify these motor and musical skills. I can cover basic fundamental and musical skills through advanced fundamentals and substantial solo and orchestral repertoire.

"Eric is an extraordinary teacher. My vocal abilities were about zero when I came to him. A few months later, I was singing at open mics. A year later, I was taking turns at singing lead with my band.

Eric is patient, thoughtful and dedicated. Whatever you bring to the table, he'll match you 110%. He knows when to push, when to criticize and when to inspire. I'd recommend Eric for anyone who wants to take their music to the next level."

I was so nervous about taking up piano again. My experience as a child had been less than stellar.
