I have years of experience as a performer, director and teacher in opera, musical theater, sacred and classical concert. My goal is to bring the best out of you because the voice is an instrument of communication to an audience that longs to feel the emotions music expresses.
I am both producer and performer. For the past several years I have produced concerts for Bordentown Community Concerts, and the City of Bordentown in New Jersey. In Italy each summer (this is year 17!), I produce vocal and instrumental concerts in the medieval city of Assisi. I sing as often as I can. My favorite roles are in the Wagner and Puccini operas. For almost my entire career I have also been a church music director (organist and choirmaster). My life is filled with music - my life is good!
Robert is very caring and intelligent. He knows all of the ins and outs of singing, and has a very fine technique which he would pass along to any student.
Creativity, organization and high quality!! He is the best!
Robert Violette has been my Artistic Mentor for several years now. Under his guidance I have given the performances of my life both domestically and internationally. He has trained me in skills of vocal technique, artistic expressions, authenticity in performance, foreign language diction, and entrepreneurship. My recommendation for him could not be any higher. For proof of his efforts please visit Youtube.com and listen to my recording of "Take My Mother Home" by Hall Johnson. I could not have sung a single note of it without his guidance.
Robert Violette is a true professional in every sense of the word. His ability to work either one on one or in a large setting always makes the musicians feel at ease. He brings a singular teaching style to each individual student. I've studied with Robert for over 4 years and have never worked with anyone as knowledgeable and talented as him.
