    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!
