*** Lesson Details ***
1) Freeing up and developing the voice to give you power, tone, range, and dynamic control. The louder and higher the note is, the more you feel intensity; the lower and softer the note, the more intimate it feels.
2) Brad provides coaching and feedback of the performance, ensuring that the singer’s audience will love you.

*** Bio ***
“Feedback from my clientele, tells me that a lot of my success over the years is due to my background as a rock, R&B, concert, club singer; and my drive to accomplish the needs of today’s recording artists,” says Brad…who has worked with Anita Baker, The Bangles, Quincy Jones, Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon), Expose', Marq Torien of the Bullet Boys, … “I was a 60s rock singer and guitarist; and I have been singing on mics, sound reinforcement equipment, and recording equipment since I was 14 (50 years).”
In 1987, not long after he launched his own studio after years as a partner of Seth Riggs, Music Connection Magazine ran an article about his unique approach to microphones and electronic elements. He explained his desire to make sure that students learn to sing well with mics, so they didn't over-sing and that their emotional nuances would shine through. Brad teaches all genres that use mics for amplification.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard, microphones, recording studio, guitar, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
All styles that use microphones, recording studios, live performances with PA systems, and voice monitoring

instills confidence

I am a beginner at singing and after 9 lessons with Brad, I was able to perform in front of a group with confidence. Brad is well educated in music and voice and teaches in such a way to challenge you and also give you confidence with where you are.
