I am a native of Evansville, IN and a recent graduate of LSU where I performed the roles of il Conte from Le Nozze di Figaro, Nick Shadow from The Rakes Progress, Taddeo from l’italiana in Algeri, Sweeney Todd from Sweeney Todd, and Manfred in Jake Heggie’s Farewell Auschwitz from his triptych Out of Darkness.

Outside the university’s walls, I performed several roles and concerts with Opéra Louisiane including Samuel from Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance and Peter from Humperdink’s Hansel and Gretel. Most recently, I was an apprentice with Sarasota Opera for their Fall season and a Des Moines Metro Opera Apprentice Artist for the past two summers.


*** Lesson Details ***
I teach classical voice. This means that I teach my students to sing in operatic and early musical theatre styles. We will start our lessons working on posture and breathing, move on to correcting phonation problems, and then we will begin working on learning arias and songs.

Fantastic

I'll be honest with you when my dad told me he signed me up for singing lessons I was shocked, annoyed, and flabbergasted. I'm one of those kids who can be picky sometimes. I play travel soccer baseball and basketball. The first practice I was nervous and afraid of what the instructor could be but when we showed up and we met him I knew he would be a great instructor. He was funny, smart, he cared about making me better and not just leaving me on my own he was amazing. I figured before I started lessons that I could stop after a couple of weeks. But after meeting Alex And his passion to make me better i find my self happy and excited for practice every time. With my schedule its so unpredictable but Alex handles it like a pro. I will text him and ask him if this time works even if we plan on a different time. U know what he says everytime??? I'll be there. He is great communication wise. If I have something I will text him, he will text right back and have a solution to the problem every time. He is a great instructor who cares and is nice cool funny and fantastic all around.
