I've been coaching and teaching singers for over 35 years. My repertoire includes over 80 operas, in addition to standard song repertoire. I've been music director and conductor of numerous opera companies and orchestras. You will be getting instruction from an extremely experienced teacher. I work sucessfully with all levels.
I've been coaching with Richard for 5 years. As soon as we started working together I felt comfortable with his instruction. My singing improved immediately because Richard put me at ease in our coaching sessions. For the past 2 years, I have worked closely with Richard as one of his singers in the New York Opera Forum. His knowledge is unparalleled and he is my first choice of a pianist for auditions and recordings. He's the best!
I gently, with much kindness, work with all students to help them progress to the next level.
