His vocal teachers include Giorgio Tozzi, Jerome Hines, Armen Boyajian, Nancy Williams, and Dr. David Blackburn. He has taught professionally for over 25 years.

His studio offers a safe haven to all singers who need honest assessment, recharging or a simple voice of encouragement.

His teaching comes from a great lineage of singing teachers and is based upon excellent scientific pedagogy, performance psychology and a love for singing.
