Hello, my name is Alexander. I teach a general healthy singing technique, supported by current vocal science and pedagogy practices.
I have a Masters degree in Vocal Arts from the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music where I received training in opera performance, music theory, and vocal pedagogy. With over a decade of performance experience and 5 years of teaching students of all skill levels, I am confident we can turn your voice into something you are proud of.
I work with new students to establish proper breath support, healthy vocalization, and resonance for a solid foundation that will make singing in any style comfortable and easy. With these new habits, you will find your range increasing, your breath lasting longer, and your voice sounding richer and louder.
Lessons are taught out of my studio in southwest Portland, between Tigard and Lake Oswego, near PCC. I am fortunate to have access to a beautiful, acoustically treated music room with a baby grand piano as a space for teaching my lessons. I can also travel to students' homes in the surrounding area for an added fee, provided that a piano is available (electric is fine).
I've had a lifelong passion for music; singing really feels like a part of who I am. More than anything else I love to lead others down the same path and show them all the exciting possibilities that music can offer. From complete beginners for whom music is just a hobby to advanced students looking to major or minor in music at university, I can offer guidance every step of the way.
