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.

I recently had the pleasure of collaborating as pianist for Peter Marks 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.

Maestro Peter Mark has always brought out the best in my singing and overall performance. If you want excellent results and insights in a very practical and visceral approach, I couldnt recommend anyone more highly. I have sung leading roles for Peter in Wagner, Puccini and Beethoven and he is equally adept in these styles and more. Take advantage of the opportunity!

Opera singers spend years and years trying to find their correct vocal placement. However when you go to Peter Mark, we find --at least I have found - that correct vocal placement is just the beginning. We must also have a plan for sustaining our sound after it is well-placed. And that is when Mr. Mark shows his skillfull sound designing strategies. Making singing a much more exciting experience for the listeners, and a healthy and artistic sound for those who are making it.
