Quotes from fans and press
“An enormous talent with a simply gorgeous voice…” [Andrea Marcovicci], and a “consummate song interpreter [who] probably sounds great singing the weather forecast” - “one of Chicago’s best” [Chicago Tribune]. His one-man cabaret shows have been called “superlative from start to finish, hilarious, deliciously engaging and simply brilliant.”

Voice and vocal coach
Where:
My home studio (5700 north and 3000 west)
Philosophy (50 words or less):
"Good singing is good for you and your listeners, and is far less about what to do than what not to do. Be more; Do less, then serve the text and the music rather than having them serve you. With a good technique and great communication, you can be a great artist. 'When Love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece' (John Ruskin)."
