I am a working, professional operatic tenor in the Philadelphia area. I have been teaching for the past 6 years in San Diego, Houston, and Salt Lake City. I have sung with many professional operatic companies including San Diego Opera, Aspen Opera Theatre, The Santa Fe Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, and Opera de Tijuana.
My students receive world-class training as well as a highly personalized approach that ensures their goals are attained. I emphasize a foundation of healthy vocal technique. We then use those principals in whichever genre my student wishes --- music theatre, pop, rock, jazz, gospel, country, or opera. Our sessions are relaxed and fun while also focusing on key concepts and repertoire that the student wants to learn.
Whether singing is a dream job for you or you would just like to learn how to use your voice for fun, I can help you to use your voice healthily so that the only thing you need to do is enjoy the singing experience.
