After Teaching voice for the past few years it's clear that one thing is universal no matter what kind of singer you are: It takes an impressive amount of courage and self awareness to be heard through song. The Voice is one of the highest form of emotional expression, taking the whole body; as the whole body is the instrument. In these lessons we will focus on breath, bring attention to tension, support, and placement of the voice. Giving you the freedom to be heard. I'm excited to work together with you to find your voice.

"The best singers are relaxed in performance. That is they have no extraneous tension. Their muscles are ready to receive the impulse necessary to fulfill action and will ripple with energy."
Kristin Linklater

About David R.

Hey Ya'll. I've recently relocated to the Boston area from NYC, where I was constantly working on new and original musical theater and straight theatre material; doing every thing form off broadway projects to working as a singer for the NYU Musical theater writing department. I'm currently represented by Don Buchwald and Acs. a bi-coastal agency in both NYC and LA. I also spent the last few years making sound based movement theater on the lower east side in manhattan (Brunch Theatre) and devised several pieces of theater and musical comedy through out the city. (Heck no Techno, Bated Breath, Brickabrack). I've also spent some time out at sea (Disney Cruise Lines).

I've learned so much from this vast wealth of experience and have found passion in sharing it with students so that they can find/hone their artistry. The voice takes an immense amount of courage and that comes from awareness and self assurance. The voice takes your whole body and the whole of your emotional availability. With proper technique to support us, together we will find YOUR voice and find the confidence to be heard. I'm excited to work with you, to learn, and to fail in the pursuit of artistic excellence.
