Craig is a very good teacher who can make singing much easier than once thought. He creates a very comfortable environment in his studio and is good at giving constructive criticism.

I really have enjoyed my lessons with Craig so far! I always look forward to coming each week because he's so positive and has a smile on his face. He always finds different ways to explain things until it clicks. He will always sing along when I'm learning a new exercise so I don't feel silly. Each lesson is different which makes it engaging. We work on so many pieces which is not only an exciting thing but helpful to build my repertoire. I completely recommend taking lessons from Craig!

Craig is an absolutely incredible voice instructor. He is not only an incredibly talented singer himself, but he knows how to explain the intricacies of vocalization in a wonderfully effective manner. Even though I have only been studying with him for a short time, I feel like I have improved since I started taking lessons with him. That and his ability to foster a warm, encouraging, and comfortable space for learning makes him a truly excellent mentor.

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

I have known Craig for a long time and can easily say he is one of the most talented vocalist I have ever worked with. I attended Capital University while he was there and he helped me prepare for my voice jury. I first came to him for help because my musical theater voice was very underdeveloped and shy. Craig seemed to know exactly where to take my voice and took it there. He taught me to sing more from me, rather than from a contracted mock up of what I thought singing was supposed to be. Eventually, my voice started to mellow out, level off in volume and sharpen up.

Craig's teaching philosophy has made me a better and more knowledgable singer. His lessons combine technique and pedagogy to help me naturally discover my voice. Craig's intuitive personality finds the best balance between challenge and support to encourage growth in a safe and healthy manner. I appreciate how he has instilled a sense of comfort and safety when he is working with me. Craig is an incredible voice teacher and I highly encourage you to consider him.
