Opera Voice

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Hey there!

Trying to increase your range? Develop a unique style? Or maybe your just trying to sing in tune??
I’m here to help! With close to a decade of vocal performance experience + training (Including being a finalist at the 2018 ICCA finals), there are many things I have learned along the way that will save you time, frustration, and most importantly, your vocal health. Everyone has a special and specific voice, and my goal is to guide you to unlocking YOURS!

Whether you’re just starting out, or you’re a seasoned performer, feedback is essential to progress as a vocalist.

In our lessons, we will work on a mixture of songs/pieces of your choice as well as repertoire I’ve selected for you upon getting to know you and your voice. Everything from technique, vocal health, to theory will be addressed depending on the specific needs of the student. Get ready to work hard, discover, and most importantly, have fun singing with me!

Hello!
So, as you’ve already read I’ve been performing and training as a musician for close to 10 years now. I’ve spent the last two years studying Music Education/Performance at The Crane School of Music as a Tenor. Some of my most notable performances:
ICCA Finals 2018 with the Potsdam Pitches (soloist for “Walk on Water”)
Member of Crane Chorus for the Crane Candlelight concert (Featuring special guest Lisa Vroman)
NAFME All-Eastern Mixed Chorus
NYSSMA All-State Mixed Chorus (2015-2016)
I’ve played roles such as: Danny Zuko (Grease), Billy Crocker (Anything Goes), Sid Sorokin (The Pajam Game) + many more!
I’m the lead singer/rhythm guitarist in my band West End Park, who gig frequently.

My secondary instruments include:
Guitar (jazz focus)
Piano
Drums
Ukulele

I also specialize in songwriting and arranging. Specifically A cappella arrangements.

I have found through teaching so far that performing music, regardless of whether it is a hobby or a profession, enhances people’s lives in ways they never expected. That is my mission above all else.
