Paired with years of performance experience, I have studied extensively in Bel Canto operatic technique as it applies to operatic repertoire, as well as Broadway and genres like Pop, Rock, and Jazz. I have a Bachelor and Masters of Music degree, both in Classical Voice Performance. Although my music training and specialization is in operatic performance focusing specifically on Bel Canto tenor repertoire, I have extensive experience teaching a wide variety of students varying in age, skill, and genre. I have used this acquired skill set to my advantage teaching voice lessons at the School Of Rock Cresskill, NJ franchise for over six years, as well as piano and guitar, who's lessons are also rooted in a classical approach. I also have 3 years of classroom teaching experience as a K-8 parochial school general music and choir teacher.

No matter what genre of music you sing, my vocal instruction is tailored to your specific vocal needs. My goals for you as a singer is to experience the joy of singing. My instruction aims to completely change your relationship with your voice by analyzing your vocal habits and making incremental changes as we learn more about your voice. Voice lessons will also include skill-appropriate, yet comprehensive discussions about the voice, its anatomy, its mechanics, how to analyze the instrument in your throat, and how to use that instrument to its full potential in order to make it grow into a strong, healthy singing voice.

About Will F.

Looking to learn how to sing with ease? Looking for a unique and enjoyable process that will ensure your musical success? I offer a one-of-a-kind experience that will completely change the relationship you have with your vocal instrument.

My main focus will be to help you foster a balanced, healthy singing technique that emphasizes vocal strength, flexibility, and at the same time, longevity of your voice. I strongly advocate to and teach my students to develop a "complete package" to bring with them to their auditions and performances. To accomplish this, I push hard for my students to sing honestly and authentically, but most importantly, comfortably and effortlessly. Vocal instruction includes practice in sight-reading, rhythm, music theory, proper vocal technique, stage presence/etiquette, and confidence building (overcoming “stage-fright”). In addition, I can provide you coaching in foreign language diction, as well as assist in preparing music selections in English, Italian, German, French and Norwegian; either for audition or recital prep.

Will truly is a master of the voice as an instrument. I've been working with him the last few months and along with improving my technique and ability, he has taught me the science and anatomy behind everything we do. I leave each lesson with more ability, knowledge, and even motivation. Will inspires to constantly push forward, and he practices what he preaches.

On top of all that, he also a genuinely great guy. The time together is as fun as it is informative. I can't recommend his coaching enough.

Will is amazing! He is an extremely kind-hearted, great person and an excellent teacher who truly cares about his students. My son came to him with some natural talent, but no technical foundation upon which that talent could flourish. He gave him the technique first, and soon after, he helped him master the art of expression. The voice can be so beautiful when technique and expression come together.
Our son began formal vocal training with Will when he was 15. Now, at 17, he's reaping the rewards of a beautifully developed voice. We highly recommend Will to anyone serious about singing. We are blessed that our son connected with Will when he did ... he is a musical gem of a teacher. Thank you so much, Will!
