Singing is joy and my approach uses positive physical, psychological and emotional feedback to unlock the potential a free voice can realize. The exercises are clear and accessible and they lead to gains in power, clarity and range. After earning my teaching degree (in high school math of all things) I embarked on a 30-year career that took me all over the world. However, it was not until I discovered the work of W. Stephen Smith that I truly began to see the true possibilities of my voice. I want to give to students what I never had all those years - a reliable technique and a way to give voice to all the beauty of the music we want to share with the world.

About Gordon G.

After a thirty-year career that took me to most of the world's great opera houses (look me up and when you find my site be sure to click on the bio link!) I now want to share what I have learned with a new generation of singers. I know what it is to struggle with singing, with performing, with the voices in our heads that tell us we can't. My mentor told me once that the best cure for stage fright is a reliable technique and I want that for my students. I want them to be able to freely express everything that is in their hearts and share their gifts with the world unencumbered by vocal baggage. Freedom awaits.
