Having sung myself onstage with the great singers at the MET, and chosen, coached, and conducted hundreds of singers for over 4 decades at Virginia Opera -- where I am Artistic Director Emeritus -- I really know how to work quickly and effectively with singers to get their voices to ring freely and to communicate expressively and musically. QUICKLY and SUCCESSFULLY!
Peter Mark’s powerful skill set draws from a varied and comprehensive experience in opera. As Founding General and Artistic Director of Virginia Opera he conducted and mentored young singers -- many who have become world renowned stars like Renee Fleming, Diana Soviero, Lawrence Brownlee, Frederick Burchinal.
It is thrilling to be able to reveal a person's real voice to them -- and to give them the tools for them to express themselves fully and uniquely in whatever music they want to sing!!

Peter Mark has so many tools and techniques that will help a singer improve their musicianship to a professional level. If you are looking to go the next step I recommend you with Peter.
I recently had the pleasure of collaborating as pianist for Peter Mark's master class for young Opera singers and found him to be highly effective in his ability to elicit the best possible results from each of the participants. Due to his many years of professional experience in the world of Opera, Peter knows exactly what is needed to be heard as far as vocal production and style in the widest possible variety of repertoire, but more importantly, through his unique methods is able to quickly achieve the desired results from each of the singers.
Hands on, practical and honest advice to singers on how to advance your vocal performance, dramatization, stage movement to a professional level. Lesson series is a tremendous value: in a short period of time, Mark can get you ready to sing an aria or the whole role.
Peter is a superb coach. I have observed his unique method and insights help singers of all voice types. Peter has made an invaluable contribution to my development and musicianship.
Hear them and discuss what they need and what I CAN do for them. Invite to attend a masterclass or see video of my work with singers.
