Craig is an extremely capable and compassionate instructor who works with you from where you are as a student, while pushing you to be better. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with him, and have noticed significant progress in my singing since I've started working with him.

Excellent teacher! Very patient and knowledgeable. I have experienced massive improvements in my singing while working with Craig. He makes the lesson personable by trying different approaches, and has helped me with improving breath support techniques, and articulation.

Overall, I would definitely recommend Craig.

Craig is awesome! He's very nice and attentive, he really listens, and he's challenging me, which I like. After only two lessons I already feel like I'm improving!

I had an upcoming college audition and Craig worked with me to become prepared for it. He was very flexible on times, knowledgeable in his subject area, and just all around great to work with. I would recommend highly recommend him not only for musical theater but also for more classical types of singing.

Craig has been an amazing teacher! He has really taught me how to open up my range and has showed me many new techniques which I had never been exposed to and found helpful when working on challenging pieces. Craig was always ready to challenge me but made the environment comfortable enough where I felt like I could still ask for as much assistance as needed. Overall, working with Craig has been extremely valuable and I couldn't have asked for a more welcoming, flexible, and talented teacher.

Craig understands the expectations of college auditions and knows how to help. He makes his students feel at ease and can articulate his critiques in a positive way. I strongly recommend Craig!

Craig and I had a semester of voice lessons, and it was very good. I would recommend him for any beginner/intermediate singer!
