Singing · In studio

I have known Jake for several years and have worked with him as a singer on many occasions. He is a consummate professional and takes the voice and musicality very seriously while still bringing his joy and passion into everything he does. I would certainly recommend him as a teacher to any student, as his high level of knowledge, artistry, and dedication to the craft are a good lesson for us all.
