    Roosevelt's knowledge , passion and experience in music is amazing! A true pro! I learned alot in a short period of time.

  • Ann Wright Pitts

    Since Roosevelt arrived at Coast Gospel Choir as director, my voice has strengthened a lot without strain, and I've learned to breathe the right way. Under his direction I've expanded my range at the top and bottom while performing a delightful and challenging repertoire of gospel music. He has opened so many doors for me musically and spiritually, all with a chuckle and great perspective on life.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

That's a hard question. Most well publiczed singing events are not as much about actual singing ability as they are about popularity.

I don't have an answer for that.

Make sure that your teacher has as much experience as training, and that they have a heart for the art form.

Singing should be passionate, not contrived or solely mechanical.


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

Can anyone learn to sing?

How long is a voice lesson and how frequently should I attend one?

Will you be honest about my potential?
