Chuck recently moved to Portland, Oregon from Gainesville, Florida, where he was a staple of the music teaching and performing community for more than 25 years. Originally from Chicago, Chuck completed his BA in Music History and Masters of Music (MM) at the University of Florida. Chuck became obsessed with The Beatles when he began piano lessons at age 12. His first attempt at composing was actually improvising melodies over the ending chords to "Hey Jude". Along with playing Beatles tunes Chuck learned classic standards from a set of Reader's Digest Songbooks inherited from his grandmother. Chuck has performed with classic rock, top 40, funk, R&B, and jazz groups, and has served as an opening act for Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and legendary Texas bluesman Clarence ...

I have a Master’s in Opera Performance from the Boston and New England Conservatories as well as graduating from Vocal Performance programs at Boston University and Western Washington University. I have sung professionally with Boston Lyric Opera, Children’s Theater Companies, churches and synagogue and have toured on the east coast as well as Athens, Greece. Premiering new music is a specialty - I can help you prepare your pieces for auditions. My students have successful auditions for college opera and music theater programs, and as choir soloists. Students gain a larger vocal range and an easy, natural way of singing whether it is in a rock band, choir or as a soloist. Together we find the joy of singing while building a solid technique. I also work with small children as a ...

A Professional Musician, I am now happy to pass my skills and knowledge on to the next generations so that they may have ALL the fun and enjoyment of music in their lives, that I had in mine. Having toured the East Coast Venues (NYC to Key West) for 30 years, and self produced 10 CDs, I have 3 EMMY AWARDS for soundtrack music for the EXPEDITION FLORIDA SERIES, Nature Documentaries. They were funded by the University of Florida, Museum of Natural History, and the Tourist Development Council of Alachua County, Florida. Playing acoustic and electric six string guitars, electric bass guitar, piano and keyboards, drums, percussion and hand drums, I majored in Flute and Voice at UF and have spent my life immersed in and obsessed by the world of music.

I enjoy teaching private music lessons, and my students excel. My studio is near Mall 205 with a Yamaha keyboard, lots of music, and a waiting room. Nowadays in 2015, I am the tenor section leader for the Portland Symphonic Choir, the music director for The Rose City Timberlines Men’s Barbershop Chorus, and the music director and pianist St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church.
Did I you know that most Americans speak outside of their ideal pitch range, that speech and singing are actually the same thing, and that speaking on the breath can allow your voice to remain strong and resonant for hours, even if you are a teacher or broadcaster who has to speak all day? the techniques I use are body-based and will put you more in tune with how your body works to produce sound, helping you eliminate vocal fatigue and give your speaking voice more power and resonance with less effort!
I am a body-based voice teacher and vocal coach with a passion for singing, performing, and helping all vocalists discover and explore their best voice! I recently graduated from Linda Brice's 2014 Transformational Voice Apprentice Training Program, based out of Portland, OR. T.V. techniques are based on how our bodies are designed to produce sound and breath, and I have seen them work time and time again to free up people's voices (my own included!), from absolute beginners to more experienced vocalists. I am particularly passionate about working with other performers to develop artistic expression, feel comfortable and grounded onstage, and connect with both their music and the audience.
