Singing Actor in Opera, Musical Theater, Concert and Sacred Music
Jan 2009 - Present
The Thomas Truhitte Studio of Music, Voice Technician, Drum Instructor
Please refer to my above bio or visit my YOUTUBE Channel "Vaelsung1" to hear some of my singing. You'll be able to hear selections from "live" performances as Siegmund in Wagner's "Die Walküre", some of my rock music and even a Country music video from a song that I wrote and sang called "That Ol' Econoline". Enjoy! Online instruction available. I'm also a professional drummer and I offer drum lessons for all levels in addition to top level Voice Training. You will learn tremendously beneficial vocalises/warm-up exercises, highly effective breathing and vocal placement techniques, artistic expression, musicality, phrasing and confidence in a completely supportive environment based on over 30 years of professional experience. Whether you want to sing better in church, want to star in the high school musical, become a professional singing actor or just sing for fun and add to the quality of your life, it would be my distinct honor and pleasure to help you meet your goals.
