HERE'S ALL THE THINGS I DO.

 

Welcome to my site! First and foremost, I am a senior at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. While my major and main focus is to become a technically and dramatically mature operatic tenor, that is only part of my interest and skill set. I sing comfortably in many contemporary styles - including pop, golden age musical theater, contemporary musical theater, "Popera", and country.

I'm also a classically trained pianist of 14 years, especially skilled with sight-reading, who regularly works as a collaborative pianist for both classical singers and musical theater singers at almost all repertoire levels, and I also can accompany my own singing in any genre besides classical, with a specialty for Billy Joel.

I am very familiar with the stylistic performance practices of all major classical and musical theater composers from Bach to Jason Robert Brown, and I'm also very advanced in my knowledge of German, French, and Italian lyric diction. As such, I currently work as a vocal coach for pre-collegiate voice students through the Musical Arts Center in O'Bryonville.

Finally, I have started dabbling with writing my own original pop music. My first pop piano ballad entitled "What We Could Be" can be found on all online stores and streaming services, and a full album of 5-8 songs including an EP of my first release is currently in the works.
