A singer is like an athlete and training is key. My teaching is based on helping singers develop a solid and healthy vocal technique. Emphasis is on placement, breathing, developing chest voice, mixing and head voice. It's a technique that you can use in all styles of singing. It includes building vocal control and expanding the vocal strengths a singer already has so they can incorporate the sound & style they love into their music.
I starred in the original Broadway production of “Smokey Joe’s Cafe” (including DVD) and the national tour of “Jekyll & Hyde”, among others. In addition I toured the world for 5 years as a member of the legendary pop group The Mamas & The Papas. My credits include singing with Donna Summer, Carrie Underwood, Rick Springfield and Roseanne Cash.
