Overview

Hello there! I'm excited to talk to you about my studio, and my personal journey through music to where I am today! I have been professionally studying music for the past 14 years! I started performing with the American Boychoir back in 2003. I then went on to study classical voice, primarily opera, at Walnut Hill School for the arts. I studied for 4 years there and learned so much about my own voice and how to teach others in masterclass settings and small lessons. I then obtained a degree in Vocal Performance major from Millikin University. I'm currently obtaining a M.M of Opera Performance at Wichita State University, and am loving every second of it. I now feel it is the right time to explore the teaching field. I've taken many seminar courses about the voice and how it progresses and am in the process of taking even more to expand my knowledge base! I'm very open to new styles of singing, however my focus is classical training. I believe that with a good classical base you can explore many different types of singing, such as Jazz, and Musical Theater to name just a few. I'm very excited to be doing this and I can't wait to help you learn about your voice!

*** Lesson Details ***
Every lesson will be different because each student is different! I urge you to come explore your voice with me and learn what works best for you! I prefer to give hour voice lessons, because that gives me more time to work with you, however I will be just as happy to work in 30, or 45 minute slots as well!

*** Specialties ***
Classical! If you haven't seen it so far in my writing, I love opera. It's one of my favorite, all-encompassing, art forms and I am in a constant state of wonder when I watch it and perform it. My main specialty is just that classical base that every singer needs!

I went thru the online application process, then sent an email to this guy... I being an artist, and writer -
have a vivid mastery of the English language.. having said that, the first response I received back from this gut was " I don't think you'd be a great part of my studio " .... so I was confused... " don't " and " great " imply opposite meanings . .. so out of courtesy, and out of the desire to not pass up a great teacher due to a typo or musunderstanding, I replied back and asked for clarification and thanked this guy for his time either way... he responded back by accusing me of soliciting myself and told me to get a real job...

His education initially was somewhat impressive, however his professionalism is grossly lacking..

I was requesting 3+ days of 90 min sessions, with a very skilled and strong vocal teacher.. I'm very happy I didn't waste money with him, less I learn very little about communications amongst creative types.. since communication is a fundamental core of self expression...

Knowledgeable and personable, Morgan brings a relatable approach to voice - which I appreciate VERY much.

Just moving to Wichita, I wanted to start taking voice lessons in my free time. Morgan was available to meet at my convenience, and really took the time to get to know me, and gave me goals to reach with these lessons. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
