Title: Faculty, Holy Names University, Private Voice Teacher
Bio: I teach techniques based on vocal health and coordinated function, informed by over 40 years of teaching and training. As former Cal-Western regional governor and faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and current faculty at Holy Names University (Oakland) where I taught Vocal Physiology and Pedagogy, I am frequently hired as clinician and adjudicator. I only teach adults (18-70s), and students range from professionals to talented choristers.
My home studio "great room" seats 40 for recitals (which I usually accompany) and has vaulted ceilings (large enough for big voices.) It features a 6' 1" Sauter piano, a 48" Knight console piano, a 2 manual Allen organ, a Yamaha Clavinova, both CD and video recorders and beautiful wooded country views.
Voice Type: Baritone
Music Styles Taught: Opera; Jazz; Folk; Classical; Musical Theatre
Availability: I am available as a performer; I am currently accepting private students; I am available as a clinician or presenter
