    I have sang in choir and some local theatre. I really did think i knew it all, and i was just going to have some warm ups, but Cl helped me open my eyes to a deeper connection with the material. The warm ups are CRAZY and I feel alive at the end of a session. We LOVE CL!!!!!!!!

    I flew out for another lesson (yes, I flew. I have frequent flyer miles to burn) with Chris. I worked with him in NYC for about a year and really missed his process of teaching technique and fun additude. Most vocal coaches I've worked with tend to have an unfortunate off putting additude. He is incredibly helpful and always asks me where I want to improve in my music and we focus on that when we meet. I wish so much that he would move back to the city but it gives me a reason take a break from the busy city life and get some vocal work done in the process.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I build up my students on four pillars of music

Theory, Posture (physical warm ups), Warm ups (vocal), and reperitore. 

These are the things that not only build a great musician but also they are what producers are looking for today in the audition room. Lets face it, highschool choir is rich, but lacks the ability to focus on one student at a time and develop a plan based on their needs. In my experience I have found that preparedness and knowledge hold no alternatives in this industry.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I began singing at a young age in church with my mom. I went on to audition and work various roles for DIsney as a kid. Later I would follow my love to NYC where I studied Jazz/commercial Music Education. After that I went on to be accepted to the American Music and Drama Academy NYC. I take the lessons I learned and bring them into the classroom every week with fun and current warm ups that are tailored to each students needs.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with all sorts of students from young to old. Creating a program based on each persons needs!! 

I usually work with jr/high school kids. A lot of people finishing High School and preparing for college. I am really great for that, as I too once went through the same process. 

My lessons all start with basic music theory to build musiciainship. That leaves a lot of room to work with any student at most ages/levels of musicality becuase we all start at zero, and the lessons quickly build. 

I have a deep passion for Drama and Acting and include a lot of Meizner and Stanislavski in my process. I am sure to incorporate something that you have never seen or done before, and that helps when we get into the more advance stages of voice. As we get ready for big auditions it becomes about the innovation of the entire performance rather than how many voice lessons, can you connect with the audience? Are you present? Are you 'real'?

My classes are about building a reperitore, AND a great musician. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

You need to find a space and teacher that you are comfortable with. It takes time and hardship to build artistry and you need to find a place where you feel able to take risks and an instructer who you would follow even in times when you dont understand where you are going. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I think first hand you should assess where yoyu are in your musicality. Then, consider what you want to change. If this path requires a teacher then go with it! 

What do you want to get out of these lessons?
