About this pro

Though classically trained I focus on a one size doesn't fit all lesson mentality. I will focus on and grow the students personal goals, and help them achieve what they desire in their voice. Not everyone is cut from the same cloth. 

I enjoy seeing the growth of my students as well as learn from them. I may have experience and a degree but we can always learn from our students even if that's a difference in perspective.

    Austin is an excellent teacher. The technique behind his teaching really improves the singing skills of his students. I recommend him.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I work with their voice and find their range, talk with them about their expectations and what type of music they enjoy. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a bachelors degree in Vocal Pedagogy and performance. I still perform in the local area and I seek to offer performance opportunities to my students as well. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Monthly tuition:

4 Half-hour lessons: $100

4 fourty-five minute lessons: $120

4 one-hour lessons: $160


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching as a way to assist students at a local high school, and enjoyed it as is as I continued to see their growth. I decided to make it my passion. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages. I've worked with students who desire to attend Universities for music, and for those who are in community performances that just needed some extra help on their music. Lessons are for everyone not just the next big star. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have recently realized that teaching online versus teaching in person is just as effective! On top of that I have seen an entire generation in my studio graduate high school and get accepted to schools like Indiana Universty's school of music, Carnegie Mellon, Long Island University, NYU and other schools with scholarship offers. I guess you could say I was a proud voice "Dad". 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure your teacher performs and also can sing themselves, they should also have higher education. Whilst a degree isn't everything it does mean that we have studied the Vocal mechanism extensively and are trained to hear, and see unhealthy vocal patterns and habits that could be potentially damaging-- we then just address that anatomically and move forward with excersies for correction. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Just ask the questions. As a teacher I will guide you to the answer together.
