The name I am known by is Timothy.
I am excited to start teaching students who want to learn how to sing the right way. No matter what kind of music you want to perform, having great breath support can keep you vocally healthy for your entire life.
I have studied voice myself for over 30 years. As a professional I have performed opera, musicals, operetta and in concert in Europe, primarily in German Opera houses as a lead tenor in every category.
I speak fluent German, I have a good performance knowledge of Italian, French and Latin and have also sung in Russian and Hungarian.
My voice teachers were themselves professional opera singers in the real world and I have learned so much from all of them. I have obviously also sung with some of the best singers in the world in every voice category and understand what it takes to sing well.
My ex-wife worked in Musicals as a keyboardist and conductor in Germany and on Broadway with Disney's Beauty and the Beast and also Miss Saigon. I spent a lot of time around this world and have learned a lot about musical singing from them.
Still, the best of them possessed classical training which helped them have long careers.
However, if you want to study for enjoyment and personal development, then I am willing to work with you as well. Love for music, the voice and singing is what binds us, not whether you want to do opera.
However, I would like to encourage those who especially want to study with me for the professional world to work with me. I'm pretty sure I can help you.
I am uncomplicated and fun to work with, but I am nicely honest and will do everything I can to help you have a wonderful experience singing.
Looking forward to working with you!
