I am a voice teacher, professional bass-baritone, and scholar of historical vocal pedagogy. My voice studio is rooted in the old Italian school teachings of Manuel García and Francesco Lamperti, which are illuminated through and the revolutionary perspective of Alfred A. Tomatis, a pioneer in psychoacoustics. I have appeared in eighty-two productions with the New York City Opera and Metropolitan Opera, and on Broadway with City Center Encores! My experience as soloist and ensemble member in both classical and musical theatre genres gives me a unique perspective; the knowledge and skill I bring to students is not second-hand speculation, but that of a seasoned artist with more than twenty-five years experience onstage and in the voice studio. I am also the author of Hidden In Plain Sight: The Hermann Klein Phono-Vocal Method Based Upon The Famous School Of Manuel Garcia. Find my blog on the art of singing at VoiceTalk.
